DASH masternode on Vocore!

Tue Jul 05, 2016 1:08 am

Hi, I'm a cryptocurrency enthusiast looking to set up my Vocore (with 2.0 dock) as a masternode for the Dash cryptocurrency, according to this guide, but instead of using a VPS instance with Ubuntu, I'm looking to host it with the Vocore.

The guide: [url="https://www.dash.org/forum/threads/taos-masternode-setup-guide-for-dummies-updated.2680/#post-25455"]TAO'S MASTERNODE SETUP GUIDE FOR DUMMIES (UPDATED)[/url]

So far it seems as though I can get around the tiny amount of RAM on the vocore by partitioning a swap file first, which will then allow me to install the Dash daemon and any other RAM-requiring packages. (I figure I can also delete the partition afterward to further harden the node.)

I'm not much of a coder but have successfully setup masternodes before using a VPS. I have a few questions before I make my attempt on the Vocore:

Is my understanding correct that openwrt is the Vocore's linux firmware distro? If so, it should be able to run the daemon after I install the necessary USB, disk partition, wifi/lan packages, right? If not, what light version of linux should I install instead of openwrt?

I appreciate any advice anyone may have, and would be happy to dish out more information on the Dash masternode system or cryptocurrencies in general.

openwrt is full function linux, just with wireless driver. everything should be same. But you might have to find every necessary drivers.
