[Masternode] Masternode Setup Guide (Ubuntu/Linux)

1. Establish SSH connection to the virtual machine using the private key obtained during creation:

ssh -i XXXXX.key user@ip

2. Download and extract the latest wallet files (v2.4.7.1):

For ARM64:
wget -c https://github.com/MattF42/PePe-core/releases/download/v2.4.7.1/PEPEPOW-v2.4.7.1–release-aarch64-linux-gnu.tgz -O – | tar -xz

For X64 (QT-gui):
wget -c https://github.com/MattF42/PePe-core/releases/download/v2.4.7.1/PEPEPOW-v2.4.7.1–release-x86_64-linux-gnu.tgz -O – | tar -xz

For X64 (non-QT-gui, smaller download):
wget -c https://github.com/MattF42/PePe-core/releases/download/v2.4.7.1/PEPEPOW-v2.4.7.1–release-cli-x86_64-linux-gnu.tgz -O – | tar -xz

3. Synchronize the wallet:

./PEPEPOWd -daemon

4. Check block synchronization:

./PEPEPOW-cli getblockcount

5. Obtain the wallet address and transfer 10M PEPEPW:

./PEPEPOW-cli getaccountaddress “”

6. Check account balance:

./PEPEPOW-cli getbalance

7. Find masternode output and key:

./PEPEPOW-cli masternode outputs
./PEPEPOW-cli masternode genkey

8. Use Nano to edit configuration files:

if nano is not installed:
sudo apt update -y
sudo apt install nano
cd .PEPEPOWcore
nano PEPEPOW.conf
nano masternode.conf

9. Restart the wallet and run masternode (remember to open port 8833):

./PEPEPOW-cli stop
./PEPEPOWd -daemon
./PEPEPOW-cli masternode start-all
./PEPEPOW-cli masternode status

10. Check masternode status and online presence:

./PEPEPOW-cli masternodelist info “your IP”

11. Download wallet.dat for backup (path for Windows):

scp -i XXXX.key ubuntu@IP:/home/ubuntu/.PEPEPOWcore/wallet.dat C:\Users\XXXX\Downloads\wallet.dat
