masternode.me - sending masternode start

How send masternode start.

Once you've completed signup, you need to start your masternode from your official dash.org core wallet. This requires two steps. At the bottom of your masternode page in the Configuration section you'll find text to add to your local wallet masternode.conf. Then you will relaunch the wallet and can send the start signal.

masternode.conf

An example masternode.conf configuration looks like this:
