On Your Local Wallet

This guide assumes you have already downloaded the qt-wallet and have 5,000 BitF Tokens available.

Open the debug console by clicking Tools->Debug console

Enter this command substituting whatever name you wish to use getaccountaddress yournamehere

You should get back an address like this fR41drjbyUqvUm13XEiyKSFX3tvBVRDv3u copy that somwhere for later.

Enter this command masternode genkey

You should get back a masternode private key that looks like this 2ZzTpJ2smMzFcnJw2Ce1xzrZ3zsWSkSmyFvzLZwz2BxJ2H4V4NG copy that somewhere for later.

Use the wallet to send 5,000 BitF tokens to the account address you copied down from earlier. After the transaction has gone through find it in under the Transactions tab and double click on the transaction. Copy the Transaction ID and Output index # which you will need for the masternode.conf in the next step

Click Tools->Open Masternode Configuration File

Add a line at the bottom of file as the example shows above using the information you've copied down from previous steps.
yourmasternodename masternodeipaddress:7337 masternodeprivatekey transactionid transactionindex

which should look something like:
mn1 93HaYBVUCYjEMeeH1Y4sBGLALQZE1Yc1K64xiqgX37tGBDQL8Xg 2bcd3c84c84f87eaa86e4e56834c92927a07f9e18718810b92e0d0324456a67c 0

Save the file.

Click Tools->Open Wallet Configuration File

Edit the file to look like the following but substitute your own username and password which can be anything you want.


Save the file. Restart the wallet. Now move on to setting up the linux vps.

Installing and Configuring a BitFd Masternode on Ubuntu

As a super user logged into your linux vps enter the following commands

sudo apt-get install build-essential libtool autotools-dev automake pkg-config libssl-dev libevent-dev bsdmainutils git

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install libboost*

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install libdb4.8-dev libdb4.8++-dev

sudo apt-get install libqt5gui5 libqt5core5a libqt5dbus5 qttools5-dev qttools5-dev-tools libprotobuf-dev protobuf-compiler libzmq3-dev libminiupnpc-dev libqt4-dev libevent-pthreads-2.0-5

mkdir ~/.BitF

cd ~/.BitF


tar -zxvf BitF-linux.tar.gz

chmod 755 *

create a BitF.conf file with your preferred text editor eg. nano BitF.conf or vi BitF.conf

Put in the following text making sure to substitute your masternode's IP address and masternode private key.


Now startup the server with ./BitFd and you should see a message that says the server has started. You can watch what's going on using the command tail -f debug.log and ctrl+c to quit watching the log.

Enable the Masternode Remotely on Your Local

Go to the Masternodes tab in the wallet on your local machine. Right click on your masternode and click on Start alias. Click Ok on the dialog box.

Congratulations your masternode should now be enabled!
