TecraCoin console basics

QT console commands

Get new address (twice)

Get "ownerAddress" and "payoutAddress"

"ownerAddress" need to be unique - you can register only one masternode using one address.


Get list of usable outputs

Get "collateralHash" and "collateralIndex"

evotnode outputs

Generate new masternode keypair

Get "operatorPubKey" (public) and "tnodeblsprivkey" (secret).

This key pair is unique - you can register only one masternode per key pair.

bls generate

For old system (get "tnodeprivkey"), only if you register new tnode (not need on update).

tnode genkey

Find address to use for network fee payment

Get "feeSourceAddress"

listaddressbalances 0.1

Unlock wallet for 60 seconds

walletpassphrase "YourWalletPassword" 60

Register masternode in new system

protx register "collateralHash"  "ip:Port" "ownerAddress" "operatorPubKey" "" 0 "payoutAddress" "feeSourceAddress"

Edit local tnode.conf (only if new masternode, no need on update)

On windows %appdata%\tecracoin\tnode.conf

Add line (pick alias as you prefer)

alias IP:port tnodeprivkey collateralHash collateralIndex

And restart QT. Activate Tnode after masternode server setup.

rm -rf tecracoin-1.*  #delete all old versions
