Masternodes

How to set up a Florijncoin mastenode when we are listed at the third party Coin Market Cap (CMC ) exchanges;

Florijncoin ticker name FLRN is best known as the cryptocurrency with a focus on user-friendly payments and savings with a super-fast transaction speed. What many people do not know is that these features are implemented on top of a network of dedicated servers known as masternodes, which gives rise to many exciting features not available on conventional X11 algorithm blockchain. These features include instant and private transactions, as well as governance of the development of the FLRN network through a monthly budget and voting. This in itself is a first in the crypto world, and the masternodes are necessary to achieve the privacy and speed that FLRN offers. This documentation focuses on understanding the services masternodes provide to the X11 Asic FLRN network, but also includes guides on how to run a masternode, using either a hosting provider or by setting up and maintaining your own hosting solution. The primary requirement to run a masternode on the X11 Asic FLRN network is a stake of 10.1000 FLRN. This is known as the collateral, and cannot be spent without interrupting operation of the masternode, therefor it need to be staked at all times or your FLRN masternode will not work anymore. The second requirement is the actual server running the FLRN X11 masternode software. #FLRNNODE

Simply put, a masternode is a server with a full copy of the Florijncoin X11 blockchain, which guarantees a certain minimum level of performance and functionality to perform certain tasks related to block validation, as well as PrivateSend and InstantSend, as the privacy and instant transaction features in Dash are called. The masternodes are paid for this service, using a concept known as Proof of Service. This is in addition to the Proof of Work done by miners to secure the blockchain. Masternodes are also allowed to vote on governance and funding proposals, with each masternode receiving one vote (yes/no/abstain) on each proposal submitted to the system. Anyone can run a masternode. The objective is to have enough decentralization to ensure that no single person controls a significant fraction of the masternodes. However, to avoid bloating the network with unnecessary masternodes or encouraging reckless operators, there is one condition that needs to be fulfilled: proof of ownership of 10.100 FLRN. The coins don’t need to be in the masternode, but they need to be kept in a certain way that is transparent to the entire network. If the owner moves or spends those coins, the masternode stops working and payment ceases.

Masternodes are paid by the network for the PrivateSend, InstantSend and governance services they provide. 45% of the block reward is paid out to the masternodes, 45% to miners and 10% to the budget. In practice, half of the reward from a normal block goes to the miner and half to the masternode. Then, every 16,616 blocks (approximately 30.29 days), a superblock is created that contains the entire 10% payout to the budget proposal winners. Masternodes are selected for payment in each block (approximately every 2.6 minutes) from a deterministic masternode list, and moved to the back of the list after payment. As more masternodes are created, the duration between payments increases. If the collateral behind a masternode is spent, or if a masternode stops providing services to the network for more than one hour, it is removed from the list until normal service resumes. In this way, masternodes are given incentive to provide efficient and reliable services to the network. Having so many servers holding a full copy of the blockchain and working for the coin can be extremely useful. Thanks to the reward system, there is no risk of not having enough masternodes, and the developers can rely on them quickly deploying any new decentralized feature they want to implement. This is where the true strength of FLRN lies in an incentivized system of thousands (maximum 5.000 Masternodes) of distributed servers working 24×7 means thatFLRN can scale more efficiently and deploy services more quickly than a blockchain run entirely by unpaid volunteers. The more masternodes, the better and safer the FLRN network.

Masternode versus mining

FLRN, like Bitcoin and most other cryptocurrencies, is based on a decentralized ledger of all transactions, known as a blockchain. This blockchain is secured through a consensus mechanism; in the case of both FLRN and Bitcoin, the consensus mechanism is Proof of Work (PoW). miners attempt to solve difficult problems with specialized computers, and when they solve the problem, they receive the right to add a new block to the blockchain. If all the other people running the software agree that the problem was solved correctly, the block is added to the blockchain and the miner is rewarded.  FLRN works a little differently from Bitcoin, however, because it has a two-tier network. The second tier is powered by masternodes (Full Nodes), which enable financial privacy (PrivateSend), instant transactions (InstantSend), and the decentralized governance and budget system. Because this second tier is so important, masternodes are also rewarded when miners discover new blocks. The breakdown is as follows: 45% of the block reward goes to the miner, 45% goes to masternodes, and 10% is reserved for the budget system (created by superblocks every month). The masternode system is referred to as Proof of Service (PoSe), since the masternodes provide crucial services to the network. In fact, the entire network is overseen by the masternodes, which have the power to reject improperly formed blocks from miners. If a miner tried to take the entire block reward for themselves or tried to run an old version of the FLRN software, the masternode network would orphan that block, and it would not be added to the blockchain.  In short, miners power the first tier, which is the basic sending and receiving of funds and prevention of doublespending. Masternodes power the second tier, which provide the added features that make Dash different from other cryptocurrencies. Masternodes do not mine, and mining computers cannot serve as masternodes. Additionally, each masternode is “secured” by 10.100 FLRN. Those FLRN remain under the sole control of their owner at all times, and can still be freely spent. The funds are not locked in any way. However, if the funds are moved or spent, the associated masternode will go offline and stop receiving rewards.

Payment logic

Masternode payments in FLRN version V0.15 are entirely deterministic and based on a simple list sort algorithm.

  1. The full set, which contains all registered FLRN masternodes that have not spent their collateral funding transactions.
  2. The valid set, a subset of the full set which contains all FLRN masternodes which are not marked as Proof of Service (PoSe) banned.

Each masternode in the set of valid masternodes, identified by its registration transaction ID, is associated with the block at which it was last paid. If it has never received payment or was banned for failing to meet the PoSe requirements, then the block at which it was first registered or at which service was restored is used instead. The list is sorted in ascending order by this block height and ProRegTx hash (as a tie breaker in case two masternodes were registered in the same block), and the first entry is selected for payment.

Proof of Sevice

Proof of Service (PoSe) is a scoring system used to determine if a FLRN masternode is providing network services in good faith. A number of metrics are involved in the calculation, so it is not possible to game the system by causing FLRN masternodes to be PoSe banned for failing to respond to ping requests by e.g. a DDoS attack just prior to payment. Each failure to provide service results in an increase in the PoSe score relative to the maximum score, which is equal to the number of registered FLRN masternodes. If the score reaches the number of registered FLRN masternodes, a PoSe ban is enacted and the FLRN masternode must be repaired to ensure it provides reliable service and registered in the list again using a ProUpServTx. The current scoring rules as of Dash 0.14 are:

    • Failure to participate in 66% punishment
    • Each subsequent block reduces PoSe score by 1.

Quorum selectionm

In past versions of FLRN, quorums of 10 masternodes were formed spontaneously to lock InstantSend transactions. As of FLRN 0.14, quorums are deterministically formed, contain more masternodes and remain alive for a longer period of time. While they remain responsible for InstantSend transactions, the locking mechanism has changed to automatically attempt locks on most network transactions according to the requirements described.  FLRN Masternodes are now also responsible for more network consensus functions, such as chainlocks. FLRN Masternode quorums are formed through a process of Failure to participate in DKG will eventually result in a PoSe ban as described above..

Masternode requirements

  • 10.100 FLRN: Arguably the hardest part. FLRN can be obtained from exchanges such as we will soon anounce when we are listed at the third party Coin Market Cap Exchanges (CMC)

  • A dedicated IP address: These usually come with the VPS/server.
  • A little time and (heart): Masternodes used to require complex setup, but tools such as dashman now greatly simplify the process.
  • never set your masternode of!

In addition to the 10.100 FLRN held in collateral, masternodes also have minimum hardware requirements. For FLRN versions V0.15 and higher,
