A Multiple Owner is split among other funders and can be Private or Public. A Multiple Owner Private masternode must be 100% funded. A Multiple Owner Public masternode can be partially funded and will be listed on the Masternode Marketplace.

CLI Commands Needed

MN Address:

This is the public address of your Masternode's smart contract. You can get this value by looking at the detail screen of your masternode.

Current Address can be found in /params/config.go on line 39. Please look at master branch for this as that is what RAFT will be minting to.


You will get this when setting up your contract through the Masternode DAPP. This will be the unencrypted raw key.
You should put this in a file with no extra characters or new lines. Then the filename/path is what you give glo in order to use it.

Nat External IP:

This is the external IP of the server you are hosting glo on. You will need to pass this in so that GLO sends the correct IP with the ping call. Otherwise it could just sent localhost or and that would not work.

Setting Up The Contract:

Before you go to setup your contract you need to have a VPS or server hosted with a static IP. You will need the static IP when signing up for your contract.

  1. Proceed to the Masternode DAPP and create a new contract.

  2. Provision a new Self Hosted Private Contract.

3.On the final screen provide the IP you will be using to host your Masternode.

4.After creating the contract you will be given your pingKey and contract address. Save both of these.

5.Download the latest version of the geth/glo binary from our website and put it on your server.

6.Start the binary with the correct CLI Commands as shown above.

7.Make sure your ping updates on the Masternode Detail Screen in the Masternode DAPP.

Ping Requirements:

Reward To receive you reward your ping must not have missed your ping for 6 hours. If you have you will not get a payout from reward.


If your ping has missed being fired for 48 hours then your contract will be suspended and upon the next pass of Administration it will be terminated.
