A step by step guide how to create own Adeptio Masternode Server

There are different ways to set-up a masternode. This method requires a Virtual Private Server, eliminating the need to run your own computer 24/7. Your funds are stored on cold wallet not VPS. A safe and secure mechanism for your investment.

The following requirements are needed to set-up a adeptio coin masternode:


  • Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Server.
  • CPU: 1 fast core or more
  • Memory: 1024MB or higher
  • Disk: 20GB or higher
  • Network: 100 Mbps or faster
  • Static IPv4 or IPv6
  • Coins: 10 000 ADE. (You can buy it here)


Login with ssh to your virtual machine, server or computer. You can use regular user with sudo rights (safer) or root. For example:

ssh [email protected]

or if you are using putty sofware:

Once we logged in to VPS we should see something similar:

Now we can use installation scripts from official adeptio github repository.

You can manually review installation script code:

Code for IPv4

Code for IPv6

If you want to setup IPv4 cold masternode – copy the following line and paste to linux VPS console:

cd ~/ && sudo apt-get install curl -y && bash <(curl -s | tee ~/adeptio_masternode_installation.log

If you want to setup IPv6 cold masternode – copy the following line and paste to linux VPS console:

cd ~/ && sudo apt-get install curl -y && bash <(curl -s | tee ~/adeptio_masternode_installation.log

Next follow instructions during installation. You should get this message at some point:

Close it. Open another file in the same directory. If it not exist – create it. File called: masternode.conf

For Linux: 
For Windows:

Once opened, delete all the content and paste new one:

YourMasternodeName YourexternalIPaddrofVPS:9077 MasternodeGenkeyresult MasternodeOutputsResult 0 or 1

Save the file and close it. Start GUI wallet. Wait for sync’ 100%. Click masternode tab. You should see a masternode you just created. Click Tools > Debug Console and type:
