The TX ID from sending the coins, something like 2bcd3c84c84f87eaa86e4e56834c92927a07f9e18718810b92e0d032445xxxxx

go back to your VPS and occasionally check the Masternodes Sync'ing status with the commands...

To Check MN 1

We are watching for the "IsBlockchainSynced" to equals true, not false.
This will take some time, relax.
