    But this is only if you have 1000DRK right?
    What about <1000DRK
    Individuals would still need to team up and trust "somebody" with the DRK.....

    I don`t know how Flare but doing the pool of lower amounts like 50-200 need time msg on priv etc and is very time consuming... that was the reason why vertoe shut down his service....

    Yeah, currently it's for full 1000DRK multiples only - but i saw you are providing escrow service. If you want to match up for the hosting we can make a deal :)

    Still a pretty good deal compared to running your own master node. Especially if you have more than one. I like the fact that flare is using a price rate that tracks the DRK/USD pair. That way the price will always be a fair reflection of running costs and value of DRK (plus whatever profit flare takes for doing this in the first place).

    +1 for starting this.

    If you run out of spots in your beta we could talk about setting this up for masternode.io as well to open up more spots. I've thought about this setup conceptually for a while but didn't think it wasn't worth working on till you could get denomination of under 1000. It's neat to see that people would see value in this. Tough call on price it almost needs to be like a line of credit based on $prime + your fee (where $prime=darkcoin price).

    Since you are handling all the things that can really go wrong as well as having to coordinate with all the local nodes during update time I could see how this could still take a bit of work on your end. I'd say that price should almost be adjusted for months with updates required perhaps. This process is fairly scriptable though so once you had the initial set of scripts nailed (which your sexy ass probably already does) it shouldn't be a ton of work to automate.

    I could only image how busy things could get with a hard fork type update that requires wallet.dat files to be recreated. There would probably need to be some sort of timed system where the local user side of the masternode was required to update his client and remake his wallet.dat file by a specific time and 5 mins before that you'd spin up the remote side of his/her masternode with the submitted information (new genkey).

    TLDR: This service is basically providing the remote side of a masternode linkable to your own personal local side. You can think of it as trustless because you are responsible for setting up the local wallet. Running masternode genkey and getaccountaddress 0. You deposit into that wallet address and wait for the 6 confirms then you provide the "service provider" with the genkey to put into the remote side of the masternode. As soon as the provider received the genkey it would be able to spin up the remote side of your masternode and provide you some sort of notification (email) your remote side was ready. Once you received that you'd drink a beer then go to your local node and run masternode start <password>.

    Bata bing. Bata bang.

    Interesting service. Hope you will "offer franchises" or some similar approaches so Masternodes network will stay decentralized.

    Can you elaborate "auto restart"? So, if I have local cold-remote hot masternode, don't I have to open local wallet and enter masternode start again?

    Yes, as long as the protocolversion stays the same the masternode does not need a "masternode start" after an update. It will restart itself if you updated inside the 30min timeout timeframe.

    What system are you talking about? Your MNs are running 0.10.15.16 and fully, the version info on elbereths site (drk.mn) is not correct.

    It seems his port checker got banned by your MN ("port closed"). Will try to resolve that by unbanning him :)

    i am always downloading and then starting my MN's on the new wallets to get the count on these pages up.
    or does that not make sense ?

    Usually the masternodes stay online and report their correct version without your interaction - if not a major update. Will talk to elbereth/chaeplin how they gather their stats.

    You are not getting banned - its the other way round: chaeplin and elbereth are getting banned by your MNs if their port checker is to agressive.

    I'm up to master node number 17 with flare. Ok, I may have sold a few of those on the way but the point remains that flare's service is brilliant.

    The biggest benefit to me is not having to make time for updates and maintenance.
