3 Crypto Masternodes

WaltonChain Masternode – $WTC

What is WaltonChain?

The main aim of the Walton Chain is to combine both RFID and blockchain technology to help manage supply chains. What it basically does is to decentralize the supply chain, providing information on the product’s history, and decentralizing the network to access and store this information.
It will build upon IoT by incorporating blockchain tech, the RFID reader chips and RFID tag chips are utilized in Walton Chain. The RFID reader is basically a node on the chain, while RFID tag is the device that is to be connected to the chain. The RFID hardware system is what makes WaltonChain a great business model as it will prevent bottle necking in commercial applications on the blockchain.
It also has many other technical advantages such as high security, possibility to truly trace back to its source, possible to achieve the anti-counterfeiting goal, realize the
decentralization with less demanding requirements for credence, and reduce labor costs.

How to setup a SocialSend Masternode (SEND Masternodes)


  • Ubuntu VPS from VULTR (cheapest VPS is enough)
  • SEND Wallet on local Computer

Controllers Wallet = Wallet on local Computer
Masternode Wallet = Wallet on remote VPS Server

SEND Controllers Wallet Setup

First, open SEND Wallet and go to “debug window”.

In this debug window, go to “Console” and type in “masternode genkey”. Save the output to a text file called “masternode.txt”.

Now create a new address called “Masternode1”

Then, go to tab “send” and send EXACTLY 6,250 SEND to your Masternode1 address.  Wait for 15 Confirmations.

Open the debug window again and type in “masternode outputs”. Save both values in the masternode.txt file.

Ubuntu VPS Setup

If you don’t have a VPS already, get the 1GB Ram VPS from Vultr:  Rent VPS

Install Ubuntu 16.04 x64 OS onto it.

Connect to your Ubuntu VPS via SSH and update & upgrade the server first.

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

Now add a user and add him in the sudoers group so he has root access.

adduser send
adduser send sudo

Now change to user “send” and setup SSH keys for enhanced Security.

su send

sudo ssh-keygen -b 4096
cd .ssh
sudo cat id_rsa.pub >> authorized_keys

Now save the private key “id_rsa” to your clients computer so you can authenticate to the server with the SSH Certificate. (You must convert id_rsa to a “.ppk file in order to use the privatekey with Putty)

Restart the SSH Server and test if the authentication with the private key works.

sudo service ssh restart

If it works, edit the SSH config file to disable password authentication & root login.

sudo nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config

Change following Values in the file.

PasswordAuthentication no
UsePAM no
PermitRootLogin no

SEND Masternode Setup

First we must setup swap space, so we can compile send even with low ram. If we don’t setup swap space and have low ram, the compiling process will probably fail.

fallocate -l 3G /swapfile
chmod 600 /swapfile
mkswap /swapfile
swapon /swapfile
echo -e "/swapfile none swap sw 0 0 \n" >> /etc/fstab

Now we install some dependencies.
From now on as SEND User!

sudo apt-get install -y pkg-config
sudo apt-get -y install build-essential autoconf automake libtool libboost-all-dev libgmp-dev libssl-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev git 
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libdb4.8-dev libdb4.8++-dev

Install SEND onto the ubuntu vps server.
Run following Commands to install git, compile software & more

sudo git clone https://github.com/SocialSend/SocialSend.git 
cd SocialSend 
sudo chmod +x share/genbuild.sh 
sudo chmod +x autogen.sh 
sudo chmod 755 src/leveldb/build_detect_platform
sudo ./autogen.sh 
sudo ./configure
sudo make
sudo make install

Now start the sendd daemon for first time and save “rpcuser & rpcpassword” into a text file.

cd ~/SocialSend/src
sendd -daemon

Edit the “send.conf” file on the masternode vps server.

sudo nano ~/.send/send.conf

Paste this into it and adjust the values to your values. (masternodeprivkey is the value you got from “masternode genkey” in debug window)


Now start the sendd daemon again

cd ~/SocialSend/src
sendd -daemon

Check info

send-cli getinfo

If the output of the “getinfo” command seems good, go to the next Step.

Final Masternode Setup Step

Back on the local Computer, go to “%appdata%/SEND/send.conf” and add these 2 lines with your values. (You set rpcuser & rpcpassword on the vps)


Now go to “”%appdata%/SEND/masternode.conf” and add the following lines (with your values)

MN1 93HaYBVUCYjEMeeH1Y4sBGLALQZE1Yc1K64xiqgX37tGBDQL8Xg 2bcd3c84c84f87eaa86e4e56834c92927a07f9e18718810b92e0d0324456a67c 0


MN1 = Masternode alias
123:220.42.69:50050= IP address & port of remote ubuntu masternode vps
93HaYBVUCYjEMeeH1Y4sBGLALQZE1Yc1K64xiqgX37tGBDQL8Xg = output of “masternode genkey” command
2bcd3c84c84f87eaa86e4e56834c92927a07f9e18718810b92e0d0324456a67c = 1. value of output of “masternode outputs” command
0 = 2. value of output from “masternode outputs” command in debug window

Now reopen the SEND Wallet, goto “Masternodes” and click Start alias. Your remote Masternode should now be running!

ArcticCoin Cold wallet setup

ArcticCoin Cold wallet setup

This guide will assume you have a basic understanding of the command line.
Otherwise, please check the official documentation & our Reddit.

If you’re using Windows, I would suggest check the great Windows Cold wallet setup by @sidzero that you can find on the pinned in Discord’s#masternode channel.
If you’re using Linux, the commands are basically the same (except you should use another package manager).

If you don’t already have 1000 ARC, you can buy them on Cryptopia or Livecoin.

At the time of writing, a masternode costs ~100-200$.


Compile ArcticCoin on your Mac

In order to follow this tutorial, you will need:

Install the code

  • brew install autoconf automake berkeley-db4 libtool boost miniupnpc openssl pkg-config protobuf libevent
  • Checkout the code with git clone https://github.com/ArcticCore/arcticcoin.git
  • cd arcticcoin
  • (optionnal) You might want to build the project for a specific version instead of HEAD. Use git checkout tags/v0.12.1.2 to checkout this specific version.
  • ./autogen.sh
  • ./configure --without-gui
  • make
  • make install : This makes a copy of the binaries to have them in PATH

Now you should set random RPC credentials on the arcticcoin.conf:

echo -e "rpcuser=arcticcoinrpc\nrpcpassword=$(xxd -l 16 -p /dev/urandom)" \
> "/Users/${USER}/Library/Application Support/ArcticCore/arcticcoin.conf"
chmod 600 "/Users/${USER}/Library/Application Support/ArcticCore/arcticcoin.conf"

Synchronize the wallet

First you need to run the following command

Now you should be able to run arcticcoind -daemon.

Check the progress of the sync by running arcticcoin-cli getinfo.
Once the "blocks" key is equal to the current block, it means your wallet is fully Synchronized.
Check the explorer to know the current block.

Secure you wallet

Your wallet is currently unencrypted, you SHOULD secure it with the following commands:

arcticcoin-cli encryptwallet A_LONG_PASSWORD_YOU_SHOULDNT_FORGET
=> Wallet encrypted; Arctic Core server stopping, restart to run with encrypted wallet. The keypool has been flushed, you need to make a new backup.
arcticcoind -daemon

You should backup your wallet.dat file at this point.

Setting up the masternode

Generate an address: arcticcoin-cli getaccountaddress mn1

Now send EXACTLY 1000 ARC to this address. Make sure to RECEIVE 1000 ARC, so if you’re sending from Cryptopia that would be 1000.01 ARC.
Check that you received exactly 1000 ARC by running arcticcoin-cli listtransactions.

Now, run the following commands:

arcticcoin-cli goldminenode genkey # Returns your 
arcticcoin-cli goldminenode outputs # Returns { "": "" }

Note the output of those 2 commands somewhere (I recommend a password manager like 1Password / Dashlane).

Deploy your VPS

I use Scaleway (https://cloud.scaleway.com). I won’t get too much into detail but create an account, register a credit card, set-up two factor authentication (optionnal).
It is also very important that you generate SSH keys, because password-protected servers are not the best in terms of security. Follow this guide: https://www.scaleway.com/docs/configure-new-ssh-key

Now we’re gonna create our masternode: click on “Create Server”, choose an easy name (eg. arc-mn-1), choose the instance type (VC1S is enough, 3€ / month), let the default Ubuntu Xenial, create it.

Now you SHOULD be able to connect by using ssh: ssh root@YOUR_SERVER_IP_ADDRESS.

Using other providers

I will edit this post in the future with more informations on how to setup the servers on different providers. If you do not wish to use Scaleway, I can recommend the use of the following providers:

  • Digital Ocean : Nice interface, starts at ~5$ per month
  • Vultr : Quite nice as well, can pay with Bitcoin, starts at ~2.5$
  • Aruba : Pretty cheap (1€ / month) but the interface is terrible and you have to pay upfront

The setup should be quite similar: create a server running ubuntu, and ssh into the machine to follow the rest of the tutorial.

Configure your VPS

Once you’re logged via ssh, run the following commands:

apt-get update
apt-get install -y build-essential software-properties-common autoconf libssl-dev libboost-dev libboost-chrono- dev libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-program-options-dev libboost-system-dev libboost-test-dev libboost- thread-dev sudo automake git software-properties-common
add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin -y
apt-get update
apt-get install libdb4.8-dev bsdmainutils libdb4.8++-dev -y
mkdir ~/arc
cd ~/arc
apt-get install wget nano -y
wget https://github.com/ArcticCore/arcticcoin/releases/download/v0.12.1.2/arcticcore-0.12.2-linux64.tar.gz
tar -xvf arcticcore-0.12.2-linux64.tar.gz
mv arcticcore-0.12.1/* ./
rm arcticcore-0.12.2-linux64.tar.gz
rm -r arcticcore-0.12.1/
cp -v ~/arc/bin/* /usr/local/bin/
arcticcoind –daemon

Ensure it’s working by running the arcticcoin-cli getinfo command.

Now stop the daemon with arcticcoin-cli stop, and edit the file located at ~/.arcticcore/arcticcoin.conf.

Fill it with these informations:



Then restart the server with arcticcoind -daemon.

Start your goldmine from your local wallet

Open the file located at ~/Library/Application\ Support/ArcticCore/goldminenode.conf, and add a line to that it looks like:

mn1 :7209   

And restart your the daemon: arcticcoin-cli stop && arcticcoind -daemon.

Now start your goldmine:

arcticcoin-cli walletpassphrase YOURPASSPHRASE 120 # unlock your wallet
arcticcoin-cli goldminenode start-all

You should see an output showing your node(s). Check that your goldmine is connected by doing:

arcticcoin-cli goldminenode list | grep 

After 20-30 min you should see this state go from PRE_ENABLED to ENABLED. It means your node is ready to get coins ! 🙂

VIVO 마스터노드 윈도우 세팅 방법



We have also created a Video guide that will cover every step below. You can watch the video guide or scroll down below for the guide in written form with screenshots for every step. We do recommend ordering and having a VPS ready before following the guide. We recommend this VPS to most people, it is very cheap and reliable, plus it offers free DDOS protection. The guide below is done using a Windows VPS.
We highly recommend using MN Checker, a script that will automatically check, maintain and maximize the healthy uptime of your masternode in case of any potential external network attacks. For support and questions about the script feel free to contact Christian Knuchel on the Vivo Discord.


On your desktop, create a Folder called VIVO.
Download the latest VIVO Windows Wallet version at https://github.com/vivocoin/vivo/releases. Click on vivo- or vivo-, depending on what version of Windows you have, to save it. If you are unsure, download vivo-

Check for the latest wallet release on the VIVO Github repository, and download the correct wallets accordingly.


After it downloads (approx 23MB), select “Show in Folder”, then double click the .zip file to open it, and copy and paste vivo-qt.exe into your VIVO folder on your desktop.



Open and Run the VIVO wallet for the first time. You will be prompted to create your VIVO data directory in either the Default Directory or in a custom directory. This is where your VIVO Wallet data will be stored and it is important to know, since your Private Keys are there. Hit OK to proceed.
When the wallet opens, you will notice that the lower right hand corner has the number of peers actively connected to you through the VIVO network. In the lower left hand corner of the User Interface, you will see “Synchronizing with network” and other sync messages each time you open your VIVO Wallet. If there is a problem synchronizing, it may say “No Block Source Available” instead. If this happens, just close and re-open the wallet until it synchronizes. If the synchronizing appears to stall or the VIVO Wallet stops responding, then just close and re-open the wallet again.

If you have problems syncronizing the wallet, add the following addnodes (click the Connections button) to your configuration file (vivo.conf) then simply restart your wallet. So your vivo.conf file should look like this:




Go to Tools -> Debug Console.



In the Console window enter getaccountaddress 0 and copy the result. This is your MASTERNODE DEPOSIT ADDRESS, where you will deposit the coins to create a masternode. Pay 1000 VIVO exactly into this address. No more, no less.



Go to Tools -> Open Wallet Configuration File. Open the file in Notepad. Then paste in the follwoing two lines.


In the Console Debug window enter masternode genkey and copy the result. This is your MASTERNODE PRIVKEY.

Go back to the config file in Notepad and paste your privkey after the equals sign of “masternodeprivkey=”. Now save and close the file.



Close the wallet by going to File -> Exit.



Open the VIVO Wallet again by running vivo-qt.exe. This is how you will always start the wallet going forward.



Go to Tools -> Debug Console. Enter masternode start. You will see the response “Masternode started successfully”. Congratulations, your masternode is now running.

[scrn 19] [scrn 20]


Go to Settings -> Options. Click the Wallet tab. Check the box labelled “Show Masternodes Tab” and click OK.

Now click the Masternodes tab that is now visible. You should see your new masternode appear in the list with the status PRE_ENABLE.

This will change to ENABLED after a small amount of time. All masternodes need to be active for a certain amount of blocks before they are recognized by the network and eligible for rewards.

Now make sure to install & run sentinel for your VIVO Masternode. Follow this easy step-by-step guide: https://www.vivocrypto.com/vivo-technologies/masternodes/sentinel-guide/
