Masternode Activation Guide


The masternode activation process is almost the same for every type of masternode. Please follow the instructions below. If you have any issues whatsoever, please contact support@nodesupply.com or join our Telegram group.

The example below uses the Crown wallet to illustrate the steps required to activate your masternode. However, the process is very similar for every wallet, except OPCX and Solaris. ZenCash nodes do not need to be activated.
