First Step: Wallet preparation, creation of the 25000 3DC locked collateral, Masternode Configuration
Operating a masternode requires a 25000 3DC locked transaction representing a collateral, this transaction's ID and various keys will then be inserted in a configuration file to prove the existence of the collateral, once the file edited, the master node can be started using the official 3DCoin Core wallet. The following guide will explain the setup step by step.
3DCoin Core wallet preparation
Open 3Dcoin Core wallet and let it synchronize with the network. once ready, it should look like the following picture:
