CHAINCOIN Masternode Setup GuideNODEshare's easy step by step instructions
The process of setting up a remote CHC Masternode may seem daunting but you only need to follow a few steps.
Start with the checklist and work your way through the steps.
You will need the following.
- 1,000.1 CHC coins. You only need 1,000 for your masternode, but do need a bit more to make the transactions.
- Latest version of the CHC wallet - check the CHC website for the official version
- Order Hosting from NODEshare
- 10 minutes of your time
Onto Step 1. Click on the below to get started.
Go to Settings, Click Options, Click Wallet, Click Enable Coin Control
Click Receive, Type your masternodes Alias into LABEL. Alias can be anything, we often go with MN1 or MN2 etc… Then click Request Payment.
Copy Address and close window.
Then click SEND
- paste the new address in PAY TO:
- type 1000 in Amount:
- click Send
- click okay to confirm the transaction fee
Note: this Must be 1000 CHC - do not alter this number for fees, they will be added on top.
Press OK on the Darksend notice.
OUR GIF uses Coin Control - but you can use the easier instructions above unless you’re installing multiple CHC masternodes now.
Using Coin control is good practice and required for sending CHC once a masternode is set up.
Just reply to CHC Masternode Order Confirmation - [CHC1XXX] from NODEshare
Paste your address and send the reply.
You will need to open the Chaincoin Folder in APPDATA. To reach this folder - start in File Explorer and follow the following tree:
This PC > OS (C:) > Users > Login Name > Appdata > Roaming > Chaincoin
Paste the new data from the file received from NODEshare into masternode.conf
If you can not see APPDATA - see this link on Microsoft for help
Restart Wallet so the changes from the masternode.conf take effect.
Click send. Click Inputs. In list mode there is lock next to your 1000 collateral amount.
Click on the lock - click on “unlock unspent” within the dropdown
Click the Masternode Tab
Select the the alias and click "Start Alias"
A message will appear that the Masternode was started successfully. Happy Dividends!
Please Note: it may take up to 48 hours to receive your 1st stake. This is because your masternode’s collateral must 1st mature.
Chaincoin has very, very large masternode network so it takes longer than most to get into the rotation.
Please contact support. If you have not received your 1st stake AFTER 48 hours.
If you have errors. 1st Recheck your work.
If you get the “could not allocate vin error” - check coin control and make sure that 1,000 coins are in the specified address.
