1. What is a masternode / how to setup a masternode?
Please start reading our introduction to DASH and masternodes.
2. What is a mastenode privkey?
The masternode privkey is the key you obtain during the setup of your masternode by running the command "dash-cli masternode genkey". It should look like this: 7sUW62aPX6gq1M4W7pde4c4H563k7FHEiawvarWeAdAcVufYSae.
3. Why should i enter my privkeys and is it safe to do so?
Entering your masternode privkeys allows you to vote on budget proposals comfortably and secure via the DashCentral budget pages.
When you enter your privkeys, they will be AES encrypted with your passphrase in your browser. After encryption, the privkeys will be stored on our server. Since our server never sees your passphrase, we never have access to your privkeys. When you want to cast a budget vote, the encrypted privkeys are sent to your browser. After entering your passphrase, your budget proposal votes are signed locally in your browser and then transferred to our server, where we broadcast them to the DASH network.
4. Why should i perform the ownership verification of my masternodes?
The ownership verification is voluntary. We recommend to do it, since future account features may depend on it. If you have more than 20 masternodes, you have to confirm the ownership to be allowed to add more masterndoes.
Dashcentral.org is asking your Masternode's private key. Do you think it is safe, to give your private key?
