[D] FortunaStake Setup Guide - Hot / Cold Wallet

Recommended Posts

FortunaStake Setup Guide ...


This will take 500 confirms before being able to start, so do the send first, then read through the guide. Send exactly 5000 D to an address and give that address a label like FS01.

Script for VPS Portion Located Here
This will pull v3.4 branch and compile the 3.3.4 wallet. And add a cronjob to restart wallet every hour to make sure things stay in sync.


QT Wallet
After sending 5000 D to a labelled address, we need the following; transaction hash and index of the 5000 send, fortunastake private key, and your VPS IP address.


Sample fortunastake.conf

VPS of your ip should be somewhat obvious.

After creating your fortunastake.conf, save and restart the QT wallet.

Sample QT denarius.conf


Now that address has locked the 5000 D collateral.

Get a VPS from somewhere like Vultr, make note of its IP address for the above fortunastake.conf creation for the QT wallet. On the VPS

Go back to your QT, go to debug console and type.

fortunastake start-alias FS01

In the My Denarius Fortuna Stakes tab in your QT collateral wallet, the QT will show Registered once you start your FortunaStake and then Verified, then Online, then Active. Wait 1 complete round for rewards. 1 round is roughly how many ForTunaStakes are up, and that's how many blocks a round will last.

Status Check

masternode status still works for specific reasons, but fortunastake status gives info in English instead of numbers and gibberish.

Extra D Tip

If you are up for the task. On your vps, add staking=1 to denarius.conf, restart wallet, then

denariusd getnewaddress

Send a little amount so your VPS wallet is staking, even 1 D will do something over time.

This is awesome, thank you! Once a new wallet address is created on VPS for staking, how would you go about withdrawing/sending tokens from that address via VPS?
