Masternodes

Masternodes are a core part of the Arionum network. They have been available since Block 80,000.

They will be used for the assets system and other features of the network.

Masternodes earn a third of each block, and require 100 thousand ARO to initialise.

Closing a masternode

The steps below are for retrieving the initial deposit and closing the masternode.

These commands require either the light-wallet-cli or the arionum-cli.

  1. Pause the masternode using the corresponding command for your wallet:
    # Light Wallet CLI
    ./light-arionum-cli masternode pause
    
    # arionum-cli
    arionum masternode:pause
    
  2. There is then a 30 day confirmation period
  3. Release the funds using the corresponding command for your wallet:
    # Light Wallet CLI
    ./light-arionum-cli masternode release
    
    # arionum-cli
    arionum masternode:release
