Guide / Tutorial on how to setup a remote SmartCash Masternode (SmartNode) to earn passive crypto income.
- Ubuntu VPS from VULTR (cheapest VPS is enough)
- SmartCash Wallet on local Computer
Controllers Wallet = Wallet on local Computer
Masternode Wallet = Wallet on remote VPS Server
SmartCash Controllers Wallet Setup
First, open SmartCash Wallet and go to “debug window”.
In this debug window, go to “Console” and type in “smartnode 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 10,000 SMART to your Masternode1 address. Wait for 15 Confirmations.
Open the debug window again and type in “smartnode 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 OS onto it.
Connect to your Ubuntu VPS via SSH and update & upgrade the server first.
apt-get update apt-get upgrade
Additional Swap Space to improve stability
fallocate -l 3G /swapfile chmod 600 /swapfile mkswap /swapfile swapon /swapfile echo -e "/swapfile none swap sw 0 0 \n" >> /etc/fstab
SmartCash Masternode Setup
First we download the automatic Installer Script for SmartNode.
Now we need to execute the script.
Follow the Script now. First you have to set a custom SSH port (222 for example) and input your “SmartNode GenKey” which we generated earlier.
The script will download and install a bunch of requirements for SmartNodes. When it is done, it will reboot the server. Now it will take a moment to reload the server.
You are done with the install but you still need to activate it. Once the server reboots it will automatically start up the SmartNode wallet and sync the blockchain.
Finally, lets make sure the SmartCash daemon is running and check the status.
smartcash-cli getinfo smartcash-cli smartnode status
Final SmartCash Masternode Setup Step
Back on the local Computer, go to / create “%appdata%/Smartcash/smartcash.conf” and add these 2 lines with your values. (You set rpcuser & rpcpassword on the vps)
On the local computer, open “%appdata%/Smartcash/smartnode.conf“.
Now add the following Lines at the end of the file.
MasterNode1 18.104.22.168:7777 7ReM9fPXWrXq7x99QdhVt2WZWh7gNvpcpybpWkcfZ2Vjtymc9cH 2bcd3c84c84f87eaa86e4e56834c92927a07f9e18718810b92e0d0324456a67c 0
MasterNode1 = Masternode alias
123:220.42.69:7777 = IP address & port of remote ubuntu masternode vps
7ReM9fPXWrXq7x99QdhVt2WZWh7gNvpcpybpWkcfZ2Vjtymc9cH = output of “smartnode genkey” command
2bcd3c84c84f87eaa86e4e56834c92927a07f9e18718810b92e0d0324456a67c = 1. value of output of “masternode outputs” command
0 = 2. value of output from “masternode outputs” command in debug window
Now navigate to the SmartNodes Tab in your Wallet and click “Start” and the Masternode should start successfully!
