QT Wallet MN setup
How to setup your Masternode using the QT wallet
If you are using a provider, please refer to their specific setup instructions. This is typically the easiest method to get started with running master nodes.
Warning: To avoid issues you must be using the same wallet version as the host provider. In this example, we are using XDN version 184.108.40.206
The first thing you'll need to do is create and fund an address with EXACTLY 2,000,000 XDN. On the receive tab in QT wallet click "New Address"
Enter a label. In this example "MN1" is used.
New address "MN1" successfully added
Send exactly 2,000,000 XDN to the new address "MN1" and wait for at least 15 confirmations then double click the transaction to get specifics.
