Launch your Windows BeetleCoin wallet and send the collateral amount to the Masternode address ie 10000 for Basic Node, 50000 for Classic Node and 150000 for Standard Node.

Once the coins are sent wait for 20 confirmations.

SSH to your Linux server. Ubuntu 16.04 is recommended.

Snapshot/master/install_multi_beetlecoin.sh)” and hit enter.

The installation will setup all required dependencies and nodes on the VPS.

Now installation is complete. To activate the ‘aliases’ do the following

Enter “source /root/.bashrc” in the terminal and hit the enter key.

Note- Copy the generated the conf as below to your control wallet.

MN01 X.X.X.X:3133 5GhW8VbUAN7Jjf90mffkx5kRccWfqtWbCyP….

You can use this masternode.conf configuration in you control ler wallet to start the Masternodes. Please change “tx” & “idx” with your “collateral tx” info.

Go to your Windows wallet debug console window and type masternode outputs. Copy your txhash and outputidx.

Open your masternodes.conf file by clicking Tools–>Open Masternode Configuration File.

Add your masternode configuration in the following and save the file.

mn1 127.0.0.1:3133 3HaYBVUCYjEMeeH1Y4sBG….. 2bcd3c84c84f87eaa86e4e5….. 0

Your Masternode genkey= 93HaYBVUCYjEM…..
Your Tx hash = 2bcd3c84c84f87eaa……..
Your Output Index = 0
