Step 0 – Checklist
You will need the following.
- 1,000.1 XUEZ coins. You only need 1,000 for your masternode, but do need a bit more to make the transaction and cover the fees.
- Latest version of the XUEZ wallet – check the XUEZ website for the official version
- 10 minutes of your time
Step 1 – Enable Coin Control and Masternode tab
Even though not required to setup your masternode, it’s a good practice to enable coin control. It’s in the wallet’s settings. You can read more about using coin control in our FAQ
Step 2 – Create Receive Address
You need a new address to deposit your masternode collateral into. We generate this through the wallet.
Click Receive and type your masternodes alias into the “Label” field. The alias can be anything, we often go with MN01 or MN02. Then click Request Payment.
Copy the Address and close the pop-up window.
Step 3 – Transfer funds
Now you need to transfer 1,000 XUEZ in one single transaction to this address. The Xuez wallet will add the fee automatically.
In the Xuez wallet select the SEND tab and follow these steps:
- Paste the address from Step 2 in the “Pay To:” field
- Type 1,000 in the “Amount:” field
- Click “Send” at the bottom left
- Acknowledge the fees and click yes.
Step 4 – Email NODEshare your Address
You will receive an email with the title “Xuez Masternode Subscription Confirmation”. Simply reply to this email with your address from Step 2 in the message and send it back to us.
Step 5 – Configure your local wallet
NODEshare will send you a masternode configuration that you will need to paste into your masternode file.
In your Xeus wallet, click on “Tools -> Open Masternode Configuration File”. This will open the default configuration file. You can delete all its contents and replace it with the details received by NODEshare.
Please ensure to copy and paste the full details into your file without additional characters.
Step 6 – Restart Wallet and Start Masternode
Restart the wallet so the changes from the masternode configuration take effect.
To start the masternode, you will need to open the debug console. Click on Tools->Debug Console. This opens up a command line.
You will need to type (or copy and paste) the following into the field as in the image below:
startmasternode all 0
You should see a success message.
Step 7 – Troubleshooting
In case of problems see the following articles in our FAQ:
- Make sure your wallet is fully synced
- Double check your masternode configuration
