Masternode setup

  • masternode full, you need:

    • pc and internet on 24/7
    • ip static (public ip valid)
    • 2500.0001BRO


    on local pc:
    in the wallet in the menu: help> debug
    on console tab:
    getnewaddress <label for node>
    copy new address
    *save on notepad or email... but save. ok?
    sendtoaddress <address generated> 2500
    and wait confirmations
    after confirmations return console tab:
    masternode genkey
    *save key generated
    on console:
    masternode outputs
    *save outputs
    go to server masternode
    windows:
    on masternode pc create file: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Bitradio\Bitradio.conf
    linux:
    on masternode pc create file: /home/<username>/.Bitradio/Bitradio.conf
    add on file:

    server=1
    listen=1
    masternode=1
    masternodeprivkey=<key genereted>
    externalip=&lt;ip static (ip of vps/dedicated server)&gt;

    MN1 <static ip>:32454 <key generated> <outputs> &lt;number after &quot;:&quot; on ouputs&gt;
    save and close file
    restart wallet client
    On wallet go masternodes &gt; my master node
    and select and start

    I'm afraid so.
    Dash is similar as well; they have more than 4500 masternodes, and block rewards for masternodes are fixed at 45%; whether you have 10 masternodes or 4500 masternodes, you have fixed block rewards. Now what promoted the increase of the masternodes is the rising price of dash coin, so even if you get less, the rising price made it up.
    Hopely, it will be the same case with Bitrad, however, block rewards for Bitrad masternode is much smaller at 10%, where rest of the 80% goes to radio listeners and 10% goes to coin holders.

    Hello &amp; welcome,
    Unfortunately, not many people utilize their pricecy MacBook as masternode.
    Bitrad is modifed fork of Dash, and Dash forum is very strong with masternode support.
    You may find the infor. there.
    If you set it up, please share here.
    However, I would recommend that you use a linux VPS for masternode.
    A VPS server can be as low as $3 per month, $36 per year.
    Here is why:

    • You need a dedicated public IP address
    • You want masternode to run 24/7
    • You probably want to seperate 'masternode controller wallet
      from the one inside the masternode.
      So that even if your masternode PC or server gets hacked,
      they can not take any coin or mess with wallet database.
    • You could spend more time trying to get it to work on Mac vs linux.
      Think about it. It's only $36 per year to get it to work on linux VPS,
      and there are tons of guides available.
      But if you take this route of Mac setup, you could possibly end up spending a few days.


    Good luck!

    if Pos and Masternode get the same reward then whats the point of running a MN? Am I missing something?


    Network weight for staking is over 1 million right now, so even with 5000 BRO you will not get more reward then with a single Masternode

    Install the bitrad wallet on the vps go to this windows file directory and create a notepad document and save it as Bitradio.conf on masternode pc create file:
    C:\Users&quot;username&quot;\AppData\Roaming\Bitradio\Bitradio.conf
    In case you are using linux (ignore if you are using a windows vps as in the video: on masternode pc create file: /home/&quot;username&quot;/.Bitradio/Bitradio.conf
    In the notepad copy paste the following - change the the ones in commas to your details and remove the commas add on file:
    copy paste below
    rpcuser=&quot;Anyusernameyoulike&quot;
    rpcpassword=&quot;anylongpasswordyoulike&quot;
    daemon=1
    server=1
    listen=1
    masternode=1
    masternodeprivkey=&quot;key genereted&quot;
    externalip=&quot;ip static (ip of vps/dedicated server)&quot;
    ***copy paste above into notepad
    * EXAMPLE BELOW ****
    rpcuser=thisisalonguserthatwouldwork rpcpassword=thisisalongpasswordthatwouldwork
    daemon=1
    server=1
    listen=1
    masternode=1
    masternodeprivkey=fdgjhu342rh832rhnufdh92rn329r2432r32 externalip=192.168.0.1
    EXAMPLE ABOVE **
    ** save and close file Return to your local PC and open the document masternode.conf if it is not there open a notepad document and save it as masternode.conf
    Locate the folder here the folder appdata is usually a hidden folder, so go to your file and folders settings in your windows control panel and select show hidden files and folders on windows you can find it here:
    on local pc create file: C:\Users&quot;username&quot;\AppData\Roaming\Bitradio\masternode.conf copy paste this and change the details with your information:
    MN1 &quot;static ip:32454&quot; &quot;key generated&quot; &quot;outputs number after : on ouputs&quot;
    EXAMPLE**** 
    MN1 192.168.0.1:32454 3HUFUDHBF8YU2RBHFDBUHFSFS 2423424252352626252452523523242342:1
    EXAMPLE ABOVE***** 
    save and close file restart wallet on your local pc (wallet with coins)
    On wallet go masternodes - my masternode and select create and add the info of your masternode
    Alias name
    Ipaddress
    Private Key
    Output Output
    Number
    Click Start to Start Your Masternode
    ***** sometimes you will open your wallet and see the status - &quot;not in masternode list&quot;
    Bonus Help - If you open the wallet and see the error in your masternode -
    &quot;masternode keeps saying &quot;not in masternode list&quot; DO NOT HIT START AGAIN - this will reset your masternode and cause you to lose the current work your masternode has done - this error is just your wallet has not synced yet and isnt a problem. Solution - Ignore it - to check your masternode is working properly go to masternodes.online and go to monitoring - add your bitradio masternode there - if it says Active then your bitrad masternode is working perfectly.

    Hello, thank you for the guide....
    it's a bit confusing ... because you start with step 1 and there is nowhere step 2 etc...
    I have now one wallet on local windows pc and one wallet on windows vps both synched.
    LOCAL with coins:
    Bitradio.conf is empty
    Masternode.conf has the line:
    MN1 &quot;static ip:32454&quot; &quot;key generated&quot; &quot;outputs number after : on ouputs&quot;
    Windows VPS:
    Bitradio.conf:
    rpcuser=&quot;Anyusernameyoulike&quot;
    rpcpassword=&quot;anylongpasswordyoulike&quot;
    rpcport=32454
    daemon=1
    server=1
    listen=1
    masternode=1
    masternodeprivkey=&quot;key genereted&quot;
    externalip=&quot;ip static (ip of vps/dedicated server)&quot;
    masternodeaddr=&quot;ip static (ip of vps/dedicated server)&quot;
    addnode=node1.bitrad.io
    addnode=node2.bitrad.io
    addnode=node3.bitrad.io
    Masternode.conf: empty
    is that right?

    Closed the thread.
  • Coated they are the same like in windows terminal... just enter Bitradiod help and it shows you all commands...


    "Bitradiod getinfo" shows things like how many coins, which block and so on...

    "Bitradiod masternode status" shows you if your MN is running or not (status 9/2)
