Since I was so lucky and won 1000 Swagbucks a while ago, I thought I should give back to our community and start a detailed stake diary :yum:.
I’m gonna use a budget vps at alpharacks.com (hope you do not mind me using my affiliate link), That I bought a few months ago (finally i can use it for something :wink: ), that way I can stake 24/7 without having to have my computer at home on all the time.
EDIT: They also accept Bitcoin as payment which is a plus
My VPS have this specs:
- Dedicated RAM: 256MB
- vSwap: 512MB
- HW RAID10 HDD (Storage): 25GB
- Premium Bandwidth: 500GB
- CPU Cores: 2 Cores
- IPv4 Space: 1 IP
- Public Uplink: 1000Mbps
The cheapest VPS with minimum specs they seem to sell now have 50 GB instead of 25 GB, but otherwise they seem to be alike.
When you bought your VPS you will shortly receive an email with your VPS information,
Log in http://vpscp.alpharacks.com:5353/ with your Username and Password.
Click on your vps and scroll down untill you se some links, click at Reinstall --> select ubuntu-14.04-x86_64-minimal then reinstall again (We just need the essentials from ubuntu)
apt-get install sudo
sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev
sudo apt-get install libdb+±dev
compile swagbucksd on another computer or downlad here and copy it to /usr/local/bin on your vps and
chmod it to 0775
Error: To use swagbucksd, you must set a rpcpassword in the configuration file:
It is recommended you use the following random password:
(you do not need to remember this password)
The username and password MUST NOT be the same.
If the file does not exist, create it with owner-readable-only file permissions.
It is also recommended to set alertnotify so you are notified of problems;
for example: alertnotify=echo %s | mail -s “SwagBucks Alert” firstname.lastname@example.org
swagbucksd encryptwallet “longpassword”
Now your wallet is encrypted so no one can take your coins
to send coins you have to enter
swagbucksd walletpassphrase “longpassword” 350 (seconds you want it to be unlucked
to get a new wallet address
i got address SYrfEMvC471qL5cLTgrBrKgyvxKzmvDCEf
now joust wait for our blockchain to download, then we gonna send our coins to our new SwagBucks address.
I will send my 1000 Swagbucks divided into 25 coins per transaction
I’m doing it from a windows-qt so it will enter this 40 times :bowtie:
sendtoaddress SYrfEMvC471qL5cLTgrBrKgyvxKzmvDCEf 25
Now i just have to wait for 51 confirmations, then I’m in the race for sweet stakes :yum:
:sparkles: IANARS — I know the text is a mess, help me instead of pointing out. See it as a work in progress :innocent: :sparkles:
TO BE CONTINUED
That was quick :open_mouth: , lucky you :yum: and really great initiative to start a stake dairy :+1: :metal: :v:
And what is the percentage of POS now?
Right now presstab.pw is showing 309 % right now, but it’s hard to say and a bit complicated.
SwagBucks don’t have a fixed POS %, instead each block have a fixed reward of 1 BUCKS.
Hope it is enough as answer for the moment :relaxed: . Will explain more in detail another time.
There have been a few days since I wrote, thinking that it could not have happened so much in 6 days :blush:, but when I logged on to my vps , I saw to my delight that I have received 13 stake more since last time :astonished: .
So in 7 days , Starting with 1000 SwagBucks I have already received 14 Swagbucks in stake. Niiiiice :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: .
Start amount: 1000 SwagBucks
Time Staked: 7 Days
Stake recived: 14 SwagBucks
Total: 1014 SwagBucks
Ps. Do you have any suggestions or wishes about what i should write more than how much I got in the stake?
The coins just pour into my wallet :yum:
Got another stake at block 112971
Stake recived: 16 SwagBucks :yum:
Niiiiice :astonished: need to get hold on at least 1000 SwagBucks as fast as possible :smiling_imp:, gonna go crazy turbo stake machine here :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:. Mark my words :neckbeard: .
