SagaCoin’s masternode reward is different from all other masternode coins. Our masternode reward is based on PoS (Proof of Stake). Calculation of winners is similar to PoW, so it is random but you will get your turn like mining did. So, sometimes you will not getting any reward in a few days, but sometimes you will win a couple of rewards in one day.
Total SAGA rewarded for each masternode reward is also random, you will get less than 1 SAGA or you will get 30 SAGA in a single masternode reward.
Current wallet supports multiple masternodes on one wallet instance, but we do not recommend it and we will modify code to limit one masternode per IP/instance in near future. The main reason for masternode is to reward your assistance to run a full node 24/7 to secure the SagaCoin network, but one machine with multiple masternode does not help to secure the network at all. Therefore if you insist to run multiple masternodes in same machine, please ensure you have multiple IP attached to the machine and run multiple wallet instances (one IP per instance). Although this is not recommended too because it does not help much in securing the network.
2500 SagaCoins are needed to run a SagaCoin Masternode.
You will need to copy the wallet.dat file in the data dircetory when the wallet is not running. SagaCoin daemon should be shut dowen before copying.
In order to restore a backup or in case you want to move your wallet to a new computer, you have to install SagaCoin Masternode first (like normally) and then copy your wallet.dat backup ni the newly installed data directory. Please do this when the wallet (daemon) is not running.
