In the event that you want to pool your XAP with other people to make a XAP masternode, please note that you have to trust the person holding the funds for everyone.
This is because the 25,000 XAP needs to be sent to a new address in one transaction to be used as the collateral address and the custody is with one person. We do not recommend such arrangements unless you completely trust the person holding the funds on your behalf. There is nothing to prevent the person holding the XAP funds from running away with your contribution.
A better solution in our opinion if you cannot buy more XAP, is to stake your XAP in your own wallet until you have enough to deploy your own masternode.
On the next page, make sure you have entered the correct information for the ‘QT-Wallet Location’ field and the ‘Wallet Configuration Location’ field.
The ‘QT-Wallet Location’ should be pointed to your wallet exe file (for a PC) or your app file (for a Mac). NOT YOUR WALLET.DAT FILE.
The ‘Wallet Configuration Location’ should be pointed to the folder containing your entire blockchain including your wallet.dat file. Below is an example setup for a PC.
The example given here is for a XAP wallet but the solution is applicable for any coin wallet that you need to connect NodeBuilder to.
There are two ways you can add the connections:
Open your XAP wallet. In the main menu, click on Tools > Debug console. In the console window, type the following command in the text field at the bottom:
addnode IP:port onetry
where IP:port is the IP and port number you get from the connections webpage. For example, if you see this line:
Then you would type into the debug window text field:
addnode 126.96.36.199:12218 onetry
Your wallet should establish a connection within a few seconds. You can type in more addnode commands to get more connections faster. Your wallet limit is 16 connections.
On the connections webpage, copy all the addnode lines you see there. For example:
addnode=188.8.131.52:12218 addnode=184.108.40.206:12218 addnode=220.127.116.11:12218
Open your XAP wallet. In the main menu, click on Tools > Open Wallet Configuration File. This should open your file in a text editor. Past the entire addnode on a blank line, making sure each addnode is on its own line. Save the file and restart your XAP wallet.
The answer depends on what you are doing with your wallet. If your wallet is connected to just your masternode(s) only then yes, you can turn off your wallet and even your computer. This is because your masternode is running of a VPS, which does not get turned off.
If you want to stake your XAP in your wallet, then no, you cannot close your wallet. You need to leave your wallet open and unlocked in order to stake your XAP. See ‘Staking FAQ’ below if you have more questions about staking.
How often you get a staking reward is dependent on how much XAP coin you are staking per input against the network total staking. The less you are staking, the longer the frequency of your staking reward. You can check this website to get an idea of the network staking weight.
If you have unlocked your wallet and it still doesn’t stake, then in your wallet main menu, click on Tools > Open Wallet Configuration File. This should open your file in a text editor. Enter this command on a new line by itself
Then restart your wallet and unlock it again to stake.
