Masternode Setup

Send exactly 10,000 QBS to a new receiving address. Label the address MN1 or Masternode1 or something like that.

If setting up more than 1 MN, lock coins to avoid sending the next MN’s 10k from the previous. You’ll need to enable coin control features from the wallet by going to settings>options>wallet then check the enable coin control features box. Once enabled, you go to the send tab, and click on the inputs button in the upper left. From there, you can right click an input to lock it.

Create a new VPS running Ubuntu 16.04 and connect to it with SSH and run the following commands:

cd ~
git clone


cd ~/Masternode-Setup
sudo bash

Once the script has completed, it will give out an output in yellow that looks like this:

mn1 231.321.11.22:13964 27KTCRKgqjBgQbAS2BN9uX8GHBu16wXfr4z4hNDZWQAubqD8fr6 txid txIdx

Copy it somewhere for use in the next step.

*if for some reason, you can’t complete this step, try starting with the commands below, then returning the the begining of this step. At least one person has needed to do this to get it to work. 99.5% of the time, it is not required.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install git

In your wallet, open the debug console and type:

masternode outputs

combine the output from the debug console with the output from your VPS to get something that looks like this:

mn1 231.321.11.22:13964 27KTCRKgqjBgQbAS2BN9uX8GHBu16wXfr4z4hNDZWQAubqD8fr6
5d46f69f1770cb051baf594d011f8fa5e12b502ff18509492de28adfe2bbd229 0

Copy and paste the combined outputs into your masternode.conf file. You can change the mn1 part at the begining to suit your needs. The masternode.conf file can easily be accessed from the wallet by going to tools>open masternode configuration file

Once the transaction of 10,000 QBS from step 1 has 15 confirmations, you can start your Masternode from the masternode tab in the wallet by clicking start missing. By default, you won’t have a masternode tab, it will need to be enabled from settings>options>wallet.
