1. LOCAL INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1
Inside the Crown wallet, click the “receive” tab and click request payment.

Copy the address and save it in a notepad file.




Step 2
Inside your Crown wallet go to tools -> debug console and type: systemnode genkey

Copy the string output and save it.


Step 3
Now click settings, encrypt wallet

Enter a new password and save a copy.




Step 4
In the wallet, click file -> backup wallet

Save your wallet.dat carefully (recommended is on 2-3 separate
hard drives and not on cloud storage. Please do your own research on good practices regarding wallet safety).


Step 5
Send exactly 500 CRW to the public address
you created earlier.


Step 6
Once the 500 has arrived, backup your wallet again. Then check that your transaction has enough confirmations before proceeding! 16 are required.


Then go to tools -> debug console and type systemnode outputs

Copy the correct string and save it. This is the transaction ID (txid).


2. REMOTE INSTRUCTIONS

Step 7
Get yourself a Linux Ubuntu 16.04 VPS. Take note of the password and IPV4 address that comes with the VPS.
Note: the VPS should have at least 1GB of RAM (or 512MB + 512MB vswap) and around 10GB of storage.

   
Step 8
On a Windows machine, you now need to download PuTTy and install it.

On a Mac or Linux machine, open the Terminal.

Enter the IP address of the VPS you created and login to the server using root as the user and the password
supplied by your VPS provider.


Step 9
Once you're logged into your VPS as root, follow the next steps:

To simplify the process, we’re going to use a script.

First, replace PLACE-YOUR-SYSTEMNODE-GENKEY-HERE with your masternode genkey from step 2:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install curl -y && curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Crowndev/crowncoin/setup-scripts/scripts/crown-server-install.sh | bash -s -- -s -p PLACE-YOUR-SYSTEMNODE-GENKEY-HERE
Copy and paste the above line with your genkey in your VPS and hit the enter key.

Step 10
Check the status of the wallet by typing: crown-cli getinfo

Now wait for the blockchain to sync fully. In the meantime you can continue with step 11.

3. LOCAL INSTRUCTIONS (CONT.)
      
Step 11
On Windows:
Shut down your CrownQt wallet.
Go to AppData/Roaming/Crown (where the wallet.dat is stored - this may be a hidden folder).
------------------------------------------------------------------
On macOS:
Shut down your CrownQt wallet.
Open TextEdit (a standard mac application)
In the 'Open file' window, press '/', an address bar will appear
Type ~/Library/Application Support/Crown and hit enter

Alternatively, you could use the terminal editor by typing nano ~/Library/"Application Support"/Crown/systemnode.conf
On linux you can find systemnode.conf in ~/.crown
------------------------------------------------------------------

Find systemnode.conf and open the file.
You will see an example of how the text file should look.
In the image below you can find a more a more detailed example.



Enter the information you have gathered throughout this guide in the
appropriate places according the the example above.

Step 12
Once the blockchain has fully synchronised on your VPS, run your local CrownQT wallet.

Goto the systemnode tab

Click start all

NOTE: Please keep in mind that pressing start all will restart any node that is already running - and loosing any up-time in the process! If you already have one or more nodes running, you can either start missing or start separate aliases.



You're now DONE!


PLEASE NOTE

It can take anywhere from 6 to 9 days for your systemnode to receive its first payment.
[TotalSystemnodes x 2.6 x 60] = seconds to wait and minimum time before first payment.
Maximumtime before first payment is the above + [TotalSystemnodes / 1440] = days

Usually as long as the systemnode says enabled in your systemnode tab, and the active section shows anything above 00:00, you should be good to go.

It may take up to half an hour for your Systemnode's uptime to change from 00:00 to the actual time. Please be patient.

How to check if you installed your Systemnode correctly
Enter crown-cli systemnode status into your VPS command line.

If it outputs this is not a systemnode, something may have gone wrong in the process.

If it says not capable systemnode: Hot node, waiting for remote activation, you should activate the node from your local wallet.

If the command outputs that the Systemnode is enabled but not yet activated, wait for the VPS wallet to sync with the network. This may take a few minutes. It may be that your wallet is not synced up to the current block. Enter crown-cli getinfo, look at the block your wallet is at and compare that to the current block on http://crown.today

Proposal / Budget / How to submit a proposal
« on: December 13, 2017, 10:41:04 pm »
Useful links 
Active proposals: Crown Today / Crown Central
Proposal generator: Crown Today
Proposals history: Crown Today / Crown Central

Visit the Proposals / Budgets section for a proposal template and more resources.

Do you have questions about the proposal system? Ask here.


NOTE: The following guide explains in more detail the steps your proposal must go through before submission. The Crown Today proposal generator will help you with this in an easier way. Alternatively, you could use the tutorial on Youtube.

Submitting a proposal
Proposals go through a series of stages before being paid:
- Preparation: create a special transaction that takes the 25 CRW collateral fee needed to submit a proposal from your wallet.
- Submitting: Submit your proposal to the network with the transaction id generated above as proof that you sent 25 CRW collateral.
- Voting: Masternode owners vote on your proposal.
- Finalization: At the end of each payment period, proposals are sorted then compiled into a finalized budget.
- Payment: The winning finalized budgets are paid out on the superblock date.

1. Prepare collateral transaction
A command must be entered that will take 25 CRW as collateral from your wallet. Make sure you have those funds ready!
Go to Tools -> Debug Console and enter the preparation command with the following syntax:
mnbudget prepare PROPOSAL_NAME URL PAYMENT_COUNT BLOCK_START RECEIVING_ADDRESS MONTHLY_PAYMENT

NOTE:
PROPOSAL_NAME must be shorter than 21 characters
URL must be shorter than 65 characters and should be a link that points to your proposal submission document
PAYMENT_COUNT signifies the amount of months (i.e. superblocks) you request funding for
To find out the BLOCK_START, check http://crown.today for when the next superblock will occur
RECEIVING_ADDRESS signifies the address where you want your funding to be sent in case the proposal passes
MONTHLY_PAYMENT is the amount that you want to receive per month

Example: mnbudget prepare forum-maintenance crown.link/forum-maintenance 3 1468800 1BfRZNCY68hhfLmd61fw4cCHTWrvxGwKo1 1000
This proposal would receive 3 payments of 1000 CRW.

The prepare command then gives an output, which we shall call PREPARE_OUTPUT.
This output may look something like this: 9e635d03077435a19da38414a4ff43f76bcb46d01334b6cfd95546d45de46c80. This is the transaction id, which you'll need to copy for the next step.

2. Submit proposal to the network
Step 2 will submit the proposal to the network. First, click the 'Transactions' tab in your wallet and see if the 25CRW collateral has received at least 6 confirmations. If this is done, enter the submit command according to the following syntax:

mnbudget submit PROPOSAL_NAME URL PAYMENT_COUNT BLOCK_START RECEIVING_ADDRESS MONTHLY_PAYMENT PREPARE_OUTPUT

NOTE:
Only two things have changed:
prepare is replaced by submit
PREPARE_OUTPUT is the output you received in step one

Example: mnbudget submit forum-maintenance crown.link/forum-maintenance 3 1468800 1BfRZNCY68hhfLmd61fw4cCHTWrvxGwKo1 1000 9e635d03077435a19da38414a4ff43f76bcb46d01334b6cfd95546d45de46c80

Your proposal has now been submitted and will again give you an output, which will look like: a2b29778ae82e45a973a94309ffa6aa2e2388b8f95b39ab3739f0078835f0491 - This is your proposal's voting hash, which is a unique identifier for your proposal and can be used by voters (Masternode operators) to upvote or downvote your proposal.

That's it! Go lobby for your proposal!
