Hey guys. Im a new member. I brought Dark coins a long time ago then the price was >$12 a coin. I have been meaning to set up a masternode and am just getting around to doing it now. I have read some of the giudes etc but im still a little stuck. Can i use amazon free tier as a VPS to run a masternode.?

Hey, whatever VPS you choose, welcome to the MN club! Hopefully we go back to $12 shortly on the way to the moon...

I suppose their really in it for the long haul then. And a lesson now, bargin basement prices on masternodes now ~$3500
Over $10 for a month, but there was a short window of 3 days at the all time high
(look at sky high volume on the build up, a big tell sign eh)

Far out my heart would have been pounding thinking I have to get some have to get some, and then 3 days later aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh, down down, prices are down. (bloody Status Quo in my head now)

Ok . do you run maternodes? what VPS do you use?
Sorry for my late reply I'm at work. I run 6 Masternodes on Websound. They charge £15 a year for a 256MB instance, with 1TB data transfer per month. You can find others like that on www.lowendbox.com. Just look for ones with lots of or unlimited bandwidth, and of course, heed the reviews.

Hey guys, I've been meaning to post on here and get involved. I'd like to help however I can and do have some ideas I'd like to present the community. I figured this was a good place to start before throwing out my thoughts/ideas ;)

I'm a 29 year old nerd since before it was cool to be a nerd, back then I called myself a "closet nerd". I've always had a technical background and have been building computers since I was 14. I've only recently begun programming (Python) but have been coding websites on a hobby/semi-professional basis for 10 years or so. My professional background is in E-Commerce Marketing although I really feel ready for a career change lol I've been a long time trader/believer in Dash and truly do believe that with community support and well implemented code/features: Dash has the potential to surpass Bitcoin in every way. As a primary payment method not only in industrial applications but consumer integration as well (let's perfect InstantX!)

Anyways, I will try to remain active on here and will dig around the github etc a bit before presenting my suggestions.

Thanks =)

Welcome! We are hashing out ideas for projects to be funded via 10% of the global mining, anyone with a masternode can suggest a project, it just has to get a majority vote from the (roughly) 2600 masternodes and then there will be funding providing via the network, all ideas welcome :)

New member here.
I'll be on irc tonight.

I need to speak to people about running 1 masternode.
Technical perspective, and a few logistical questions about obtaining dash.
