QUICK START (I'm Technical - just give me the TL:DR!)
If you are familiar with command line and running without a GUI, here is a crash course to get Node running on your machine
  • Extract binaries to your working directory
  • Make sure your command line terminal has elevated privileges
  • Navigate to binaries folder - (usually ~/generated/bin)
  • Initialize MASQNode daemon sudo ./MASQNode --initialization
  • Open second terminal
    • Generate new ones, or recover ones you have made with seed words
    • remember you can use the same wallet for earning and consuming
  • On Ropsten testnet, ensure you have ROP (testnet ETH) and SHRD test tokens in your consuming wallet
  • Load your setup with:
  • Ensure your setup is configuring to run on Ropsten network
  • Add your --blockchain-service-url for Ropsten (you can use this one provided from team if required: https://ropsten.infura.io/v3/0ead23143b174f6983c76f69ddcf4026)
  • Add the --clandestine-port number to your configuration, and ensure it is Port Forwarded on your router
  • Current Node setup values will display in terminal window
  • Start node with: ./masq start
Make sure the Clandestine port (listed in the GUI Advanced settings) is approved for port forwarding through your router. The GUI assistant will provide an informational link about port forwarding if your clandestine port is not open.
