CRAVE Masternode Setup Guide

NODEshare's easy step by step instructions

The process of setting up a remote CRV Masternode may seem daunting but you only need to follow a few steps.

Start with the checklist and work your way through the steps.

Step 0 - Checklist

You will need the following.

  • 5000.1 CRV coins. You only need 5000 for your masternode, but do need a bit more to make the transactions and cover the fees.
  • Latest version of the CRV wallet - check the Crave Github for the official version
  • Either GBYTE or BTC to cover the cost for NODEshare hosting
  • 10 minutes of your time

Onto Step 1. Click on the header to expand and get started.

Step 1 - Disable POS staking

In order to avoid your 5000 coins for the masternode to stake and break your setup, you need to make a change to your Crave configuration.

Open a File Explorer and navigate to the Crave data directory.

You can get to this folder by typing %APPDATA% and then following into the directory CraveNG.

If you are unable to locate APPDATA - please see here at Microsoft

Step 2 - Create Receive Address

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 the Address and close the pop-up window.

Step 3 - Transfer funds

Now you need to transfer 5,000 CRV to this address. This needs to be exactly 5,000, not 501 or 10,000. The Crave wallet will add the fee automatically.

In the Crave Application click SEND

  1. paste the new address in PAY TO
  2. type 5,000 in Amount:
  3. click Send at the bottom left
  4. Acknowledge the fees and click yes.

Step 4 - Email NODEshare your Address

Now send NODEshare your CRV address.

Simply reply to the NODEshare Email CRV Masternode Order Confirmation - [CRV1XXX] from NODEshare

Paste your address and send.

Step 5 - Receive NODEshare email, Close wallet & Place the masternode.conf file

You will receive a masternode.conf file from NODEshare

Save it so you can easily copy it

Just like you did in step 1, open a Windows Explorer and go to your %APPDATA% -> Crave directory and paste the masternode.conf file

Step 6 - Restart Wallet and Start Masternode

Restart the wallet so the changes from the masternode.conf take effect.

Click the Masternode Tab. In there click on the alias, and then on start missing. A message will appear that the Masternode was started successfully. Happy Dividends! If you get an error starting your masternode like in our picture, please continue to step 7.

Also Note: it may take up to 24 hours to receive your 1st stake. Please contact support, if you have not received your 1st stake AFTER 24 hours

Step 7 - Troubleshooting

If you get problems starting your masternode through the GUI, you will have to start it on the command line

Open your debug console, and type the following command

startmasternode missing 0

You should see a success message in the output console. Happy Staking
