Section D: Preparing the Local wallet

Step 1

Step 2

  • Send EXACTLY 3,000 XBI to a receive address within your wallet. (You can do this from your wallet to a new address in your wallet or from the exchange)

Step 6

  • Copy the long key (this is your transaction ID) and the 1 or 2 at the end (this is your output index)

Section E: Connecting & Starting the masternode

Step 1

  • Go to the tools tab within the wallet and click open "masternode configuration file" Example-create

Step 2

  • Fill in the form.
  • For Alias type something like "MN01" don't use spaces
  • The Address is the IP and port (7339) of your server (this will be in the Bitvise terminal that you still have open).
  • The Genkey is your masternode Gen key (This is also in the Bitvise terminal that you have open).
  • The TxHash is the transaction ID/long key that you copied to the text file.
  • The Output Index is the 0 or 1 that you copied to your text file. Example-create

Click "File Save"


Step 3

  • Close out of the wallet and reopen Wallet
  • Open debug console and enter startmasternode all false if you don't have any other masternodes running, otherwise use startmasternode alias false 'Alias'
  • 'Alias' should be replaced with the alias you gave your new masternode, like MN01 in our example

step 4

  • Check the status of your masternode within the VPS by using the command below:

xbi-cli getmasternodestatus

xbi-cli getinfo

*You should see status 4

If you do, congratulations! You have now setup a masternode. If you do not, please contact support and they will assist you.


FAQ

If you don't see status 4

Check if your wallet is syncing with xbi-cli getinfo. If your wallet is stuck, use the commands systemctl stop XBI.service and xbid -reindex -daemon to reindex. Wait a few minutes and check the status again with xbi-cli getinfo If your wallet is on the correct block, use xbi-cli stop and systemctl start XBI.service to restart the service. Wait until xbi-cli mnsync status returns true on everything but the "isFailed" Retry starting the masternode from you local wallet.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
