====================
FINISH UP INSTALL
====================
-- If you think your wallet is taking a long time to sync, type in "chaincoin-cli getblockchaininfo", and look for headers. The headers need to reach current number of blocks before the actual blocks start syncing. Patience is key! --

-- If your wallet fails to sync with masternode list, shut it down, delete peers.dat and restart. You can check the progress by typing "chaincoin-cli mnsync status". Sometimes a quick restart is all you need to get data syncing--

You should now be able to complete your new Chaincoin 16.1 masternode install. Like I mentioned, this is not a full tutorial and you should already be familiar with setting up masternodes.

If you need additional help, you can refer back to my previous detailed masternode tutorial

Thanks for the quick guide here but really need a video guide as I am a noob of setting up MN with normal guide. I successfully setup my first MN with your previous Video. Thumbs up for you.

I cannot get my masternode to work. I tried to upgrade twice with this guide but I'm still having problems. Would greatly appreciate it if you made a video.
