    Running a trustless masternode hosting service for people who don't want to mess around with VPS providers, Linux configurations, daemon updates and such.

    Costs are 0.80 DRK / 0.0145 BTC per node and month* including hosting, maintenance, bandwidth and updates.

    If you want to join PM me or email [email protected]

    Holger


    * price will be adjusted to DRKUSD/BTCUSD price, so it will be equal to ~$9 per node and month

    This is an awesome business initiative and "trustless" part is probably what a bit paranoid people like me is interested the most :cool:

    Of course, if you would rather not have 50% of your beta taken up by one customer I appreciate that. Just let me know.

    Could you explain how it is trustless?

    You keep your coins in your wallet and just provide the masternodeprivkey(s) to me. I set up the nodes, provide you with its IP and you start it.

    The customer doesn't even need to start it - MN AI now takes care of that. ;D

    I think you misinterpreted Evans' statement here: The node has to be started at least once - otherwise it does not know what 1000DRK vin to use.

    After that the node is running in auto restart mode, yes.

    Np - was confused by his statement too, as i have never experienced a masternode auto starting from scratch. That's why i asked him via PM :)

    Wait sorry I got really excited but now as I read more I have questions. If it's trustless and I keep my coins and use my client to forward to the masternode IP don't I need my client running 24/7 anyway?

    No, once you've started the MN you can close your local client, that's how it's always been with local/remote setups. Once initially started locally, the MN will then subsequently restart itself after a serverside update etc.

    Cool thanks! Sorry I thought it needed to be open or you'd not be active.

    Flare is doing an amazing job,
    i signed up some weeks ago as this constant updating and security and new wallet was just too time consuming for me (as a tech nob)
    I am super happy over there !
    Totally Trust-less, i have my wallets here at home, and nothing to worry about !
    Tx flare, was looking for a service like this and happy i signed up !

    The masternodeprivkey is only used to sign the 1000DRK vin to be used by the masternode - it's not possible to gain access to your coins!

    Reserved 2 slots for you :)

    Looks like a great service! Though it could get a bit expensive if all goes as hoped! PM sent.

    Flare, If you happen to need more capacity you can get in touch with us. We can provide servers paid in either DRK or Bitcoin on a Canadian quality network of our own (Not OVH). That would further spread the providers where masternodes are hosted!
