  4. Click okay to confirm the transaction fee

Note: Do not alter the amount of 1000 XLR and send the amount in one single transaction.

If you have an existing system node, you MUST use COIN CONTROL so coins are not sent from an existing system node.

You will receive an email with the title “Phore Masternode Order Confirmation”. Simply reply to this email with your address from Step 2 in the message and send it back to us.

NODEshare will respond with a completed masternode.conf file – it is the file you need to setup your end of the wallet.

This PC > OS (C:) > Users > Login Name > Appdata > Roaming > Phore

Paste the new data from the file received from NODEshare into masternode.conf
