[Guide] How to set up a Masternode on Windows?
« on: 28. February 2016, 20:11:10 »
Setting up a masternode part 1 - Windows

We will be using your home computer and a cloud VPS server with Ubuntu installed ($5 a month).

  • Create a new .txt file, which will be needed to copy/paste a few codes/addresses.
  • Back up your old wallet.dat if you have coins on it (e.g. rename to wallet.dat.old) and start the client so that it generates a new wallet (0 balance).
  • Open Bitsend- QT and make sure that your firewall is accepting connections from it.



  • Let the wallet synchronize.
  • After it has synchronized, go to: Tools -> Debug console -> Console.
  • Enter the following command: masternode genkey and press enter.
  • Copy the generated code to the .txt file for now. This code will be needed later in your new bitsend.conf file.
  • Go back to your Wallet: Tools -> Debug console -> Console.
  • Enter the following command:  getaccountaddress 0 and press enter. This will generate a new BitSend address. Copy it to the .txt file. You will need to send exactly 25000 BSD to it (it needs to be exactly this amount or it will not work).
  • Encrypt your wallet with a strong password by going to: Settings -> Encrypt Wallet.
  • Restart your wallet.
  • Send exactly 25 000 BSD to the "address 0" that you copied into your .txt file and wait for it to confirm.

Next, you need to create a new .conf file (called "bitsend.conf"):
Code: [Select]
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
rpcuser=YourUserName
rpcpassword=YourRPCPassword
server=1
daemon=1
listen=1
masternodeaddr=YOUR_IP:8886
promode=1
masternode=1
masternodeprivkey=KEY GENERATED BY COMMAND masternode genkey
addnode=107.170.2.241
addnode=45.58.51.22
addnode=104.207.131.249
addnode=68.197.13.94
addnode=109.30.168.16
addnode=31.41.247.133
addnode=37.120.190.76

  • Change the username and password.
  • Replace the MasternodeGeneratedKey with the one that you saved in the .txt file.
  • Save as bitsend.conf into your DATADIR (same folder where your wallet.dat can be found).


masternodeaddr=UbuntuServerIP:8886 Will be used in Part 2.

To be continued!

Hi Mates,

please Update your Pool and Exchange. ( Wrong Fork @ minerpools)


Setting up a masternode part 1 - Windows

We will be using your home computer and a cloud vps server with ubuntu ($5 a month)

Create a new .txt file, we need to copy/paste a few codes/addresses

Start with a new wallet (0 balance) but first back up your old wallet.dat if you have coins in it ;)
Open te QT, and make sure you have your firewall accepting connections from the bitsend QT ;)


Let it sync up.


After you synced, go to Tools=>Debugconsole=>Console
Then typ : masternode genkey                
Press enter

You will see a large code, copy this code to the .txt file for now. We need this code later on when we are setting up a new bitsend.conf file

Go back to your Wallet=>Tools=>Debugconsole=>Console
Then typ : getaccountaddress 0

This will give you a new bitsend address. Copy this address to the .txt file for now. We need this address later on to sent EXACTLY 25000 bsd  to it (more or less will not work!) so you are able to be a masternode ;)



Next you need to encrypt your wallet! Make sure you think of a strong password!
Settings=>encrypt wallet

After doing that your wallet needs to restart.
Code: [Select]
(Example Server conf)
rpcuser=worker
rpcpassword=123fasdjnhfjkasdfkjandkjasndjnaldnalsndasd1231241324
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
promode=1
listen=1
server=1
daemon=1
promode=1
logtimestamps=1
maxconnections=32
masternode=1
masternodeprivkey=7r6pasdasdasdasdHFPsFXpUH2eWyTOAE7QnN4CQkzZMf9Pj9vuz2
Alright, It is time to sent those 25000 bitsend to the "address 0" you copy/pasted in the .txt file. make sure it is EXACTLY 25000!!  :D

If you have coins in your backed up wallet. Close down the bitsend QT and just switch your wallet.dat with the back up wallet.dat (the one with your coins in it ;)) make sure you dont remove or lose the other "masternode" one, just put it away somewhere else for a sec.
Restart the bitsend QT, Let it load, and you should see you have balance again from your backup wallet.

Send 25000 coins to the bitsend address we put in the .txt file earlier. Let it fully confirm in the blockchain.
Close the bitsend QT and swap the wallet.dat files again. You will now need the masternode wallet.dat file again.

Next, we need to make a new .conf file
(Your Client Remoute)
Code: [Select]
rpcuser=your-desired-username
rpcpassword=your-favourite-password
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
listen=0
server=1
daemon=1
promode=1
logtimestamps=1
masternode=1
masternodeprivkey=MasternodeGeneratedKey
masternodeaddr=UbuntuServerIP:8886



Change username/password
Replace the MasternodeGeneratedKey with the one you copy/pasted in the .txt file
Save as bitsend.conf (we all know where to put this right?)

masternodeaddr=UbuntuServerIP:8886 Will be used in Part 2.

To be continued!

So these are the procedure  to set  again our windows wallet? But we need to pay 5$ monthly at ubuntu, right?

Hi Chris,
Thanks for this thread.

But should not it start with giving knowledge about pre-requisite for setup MasterNode like configuration of your Desktop/Laptop as I completely new on these things.

1) Start with a new wallet (0 balance) but first back up your old wallet.dat if you have coins in it
2) Open te QT, and make sure you have your firewall accepting connections from the bitsend QT

what do you mean by start a new wallet ? you mean generating a new address ?
what is QT here ?

Please help me with these things!

Thanks,
shiva
