Masternode - Frequently Asked Questions

General questions

MN01 - How to setup a DarkSaga Masternode ?

You may want to read the official Masternode Setup Guide.

MN02 - What is the maturity time for coins to be staked ?

DarkSaga’s maturity time for staking is 8 hours.

MN03 - Can I setup more than 1 Masternode on the same machine ?

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.

MN04 - Masternode Collateral - How many Coins are needed to run a DarkSaga Masternode ?

2500 DarkSaga Coins are needed to run a DarkSaga Masternode.

MN05 - How to backup or restore my wallet ?

You will need to copy the file wallet.dat in the data dircetory when the wallet is not running. SagaCoin daemon should be shut down 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.

Slow syncing Wallet - Please use latest Bootstrap

Syncing is much faster if you use the bootstrap file. You can download the latest bootstrap data file from https://github.com/sagacrypto/DarkSaga/releases/download/3.0/bootstrap71220.tar.gz

Just follow the instructions to load blocks into your wallet’s blockchain.

Bootstrap Error Message - "Error Loading Block Database"

Remove data folder (Remember to backup your wallet.dat file first if you have coin in your wallet) and re-try the bootstrap script/batch file again. Here is the data folder location:

  • Linux : ~/.DarkSaga/
  • Windows : C:Users[username]/AppData/Roaming/DarkSaga
  • Mac : /Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/DarkSaga/
