== ALIOTH COIN MASTERNODE SETUP GUIDE ==
Step 1: Remote
Wallet - VPS Ubuntu 16 strongly
(execute in your terminal this commands one by one from your home directory, as usual this is /root)
Note: This guide suppose you login as 'root' user and your home directory is /root, otherwise in below commands please replace 'root' with the full path to your home directory.
sudo apt-get update -y
sudo apt-get install libdb5.3++
sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev -y
sudo apt-get install dh-autoreconf build-essential libtool autotools-dev autoconf automake libssl-dev libboost-all-dev libevent-dev bsdmainutils libminiupnpc-dev libprotobuf-dev protobuf-compiler libqrencode-dev software-properties-common libgmp3-dev git nano -y
(Note: this is one command line, not few lines)
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin -y
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libdb4.8-dev libdb4.8++-dev -y
You have two options – either to compile daemon yourself or to download precompiled daemon. It’s up to your preference.
2.a To use precompiled daemon (recommended) do:
chmod +x ./aliothd
2.b To compile daemon yourself (on some servers may pop up an error due to an inappropriate version of OpenSSL)
git clone https://github.com/aliothcoin/aliothcoin
chmod +x ./compile-daemon.sh
mv aliothcoin/src/aliothd ./aliothd
(your compiled daemon file aliothd moves from folder /root/aliothcoin/src to /root)
Local Wallet Side
(If you already have ALTH Masternodes on your local wallet do not forget to make this, otherwise your MN will probably stop working
In your local wallet go to
Check up "Display coin control features", then Apply, then Ok
Go to 'Send' Tab
Click 'Inputs...' button
Check 'List mode'
Using Right Click lock your existing MN collateral coins that as they couldn't be spent for other tx.
Now you can make any txs (send 1000 ALTH for new MN or just spend your coins).
If you hadn't done this and accidentally spent part of your MN collateral coins you would get error message when restarting your MN. In this case you can only reset it completely.)
Most efficient method to do all necessary operations is to run 4 commands in your wallet 'help->Debug window->Console' as follows:
1st output: (example, you use that one from your Debug window -> Console) AYPxX2HCs9Rd6Kuw1XnE8Uxm3DhZxiAF4i
sendtoaddress AYPxX2HCs9Rd6Kuw1XnE8Uxm3DhZxiAF4i 1000
(use address from your 1st Debug window -> Console output here)
2nd output: (example, you use this taken from your Debug window -> Console) 99b0aad5b073c85d3d566e4318d9da7d3c622b7ad864ebdcbdea03169a638534
WAIT UNTIL AT LEAST 10 CONFIRMATIONS HAVE BEEN RECEIVED!
3RD COMMAND (after 10 confirmations)
3rd output: (example, you take this from your Debug window -> Console)
4th output: (example)
"99b0aad5b073c85d3d566e4318d9da7d3c622b7ad864ebdcbdea03169a638534" : "0"
1st value is TxHash, the same as 2nd output, so here important is single digit after ‘:’, which is called vout. It can be "0" or "1".
Copy and save all outputs somewhere.
Get back on the VPS
From your home directory (as usual /root) execute:
(You can check if file aliothd is in current directory by typing 'ls -l' , it'll put out the list of files)
This will start the service only for a second and create the initial data directory (~/.Alioth/). It will request you to create a rpc user and password.
(After this you can press enter, or type in 'Ctrl+C' or 'killall aliothd' if it seems that program is still running. If that doesn't help, enter 'reboot' and connect to vps again on your ssh). Then:
Enter this wallet configuration data and insert following lines (you may change rpcpassword, but it must differ from rpcuser):
(replace there '22.214.171.124:46566' with your own real 'VPS_external_IP:46566')
Value of the masternodeprivkey is your 3rd debug window output (masternode genkey). Save Alioth.conf file: Ctrl+o -> Enter -> Ctrl+x (OR: Ctrl+X and when asked whether you want to save the changes, confirm with Y)
Now start daemon again, enter in your home directory (/root):
It will stay running in the background. To make sure everything's right, type
You are to see number of connections, blocks, vps IP and other info.
To make your MN automatically start on reboot do next:
insert this line:
@reboot sleep 5; /root/aliothd -daemon
then press consequentially ^O -> Enter -> ^X
(if you login with another user name, replace '/root' with full path to your home directory)
Go back to the local wallet. Go to the Masternodes tab .
Click Create button and fill the details:
Alias: [Type here 'MN1' - the name of your masternode, that you entered on Step 3 in the 1st command (getnewaddress MN1 )]
PrivKey:[MASTERNODE_PRIVATE_KEY created in Step 3, 3rd debug window output]
TxHash:[txid from Step 3, 2nd output]
Output Index: [vout from Step 3, 4th output]
Reward Address: [Leave empty]
Rewards %: [Leave empty]
Click OK to add the masternode.
Restart your wallet.
Click Start All.
Wait for the masternode to mature and you will get your rewards soon!
First masternode reward may take a while, up to 24 hours depending on overall network masternodes number and other features.
