COLX Masternode installation guide (summary)

For security, you should create a hot/cold setup with TWO wallets:

– One wallet for the masternode (24/7, so either a VPS or a server in your home). This will be the masternode. IT WILL CONTAIN NO FUNDS!

– One wallet on your pc. THIS WILL CONTAIN THE FUNDS. You can use it to start the masternode server and then close this wallet.

First install the masternode wallet. 

– It must use the default port: 51572 (and ususally 51573 for RPC);

– Write down the IP address, you’ll need it later;

– Open ports, NAT, firewall if you need to;

– Start it. On linux: colxd –deamon

– Synchonize the blockchain.

– Stop it to make adjustments later. On linux: colx-cli stop

– The masternode wallet will stay empty at all times!

Then install your PC wallet: 

– This is just a regular install of the wallet with a GUI

– Synchonize the blockchain.

Transfer the funds to your PC wallet:

– Create a new receiving account (File, Receiving Addresses, New), call it ‘Masternode 01’ or whatever you like.

– Transfer exactly 10,000,000 to that account (must be one 10,000,000 payment, not mulitple small amounts).

Check your payment:

– In the console (Tools Menu, Debug Console), use ‘masternode outputs’.

– For valid 10,000,000 payments, it will give you a transaction_id and a transaction_index (usually 0 or 1).

– Copy/paste these values to textfile, you will need them later.

Create a unique number for your masternode:

– In the console, use ‘masternode genkey’

– Save it to the textfile, you will need it later.

Enter your masternode details in your PC wallet:

– Click Tools, Open Masternode Configuration File (or open masternodes.conf)

– On one line, enter: some name without spaces like

MN01 (space) masternode IP:port (space) generated_key (space) transaction_id (space) transaction_index

– Save the file and restart (I think)

Configure your masternode in ColossusCoinXT.conf:

– Add masternode=1

– Add masternodeprivkey={the key you generated}

– (re)start it. On linux: colx-cli stop / colxd –deamon

– The debug.log should say that the masternode is waiting to be started (from the PC wallet).

Activate the masternode from your PC wallet:

– Go to page ‘Masternodes’

– Click ‘update status’ to see

– Use any of the start buttons to register the masternode with the network.

– IF IT COMPLAINS ABOUT TXID: Use the console iinstead: ‘masternode start-alias MN01’

Check your masternode:

– The debug.log should say ‘Enabled!’.

– It will start Pinging the masternode system to keep its registration alive.


– If you open it, your masternode payments will appear (after block 10.080).
