Spoke to rivrhead about it last night and it seems it should be any more difficult than cloud mining pts was.


It's actually exactly the same. Get a host, build the CLI client, open/unlock your delegate wallet and make sure block production is turned on.


After that it's just tuning: Number of max/desired connections, some iptables (firewall) and sshd setup to lock things down a bit and Bob's your uncle, you're a delegate candidate.

Is there a link to a step by step guide?

Thats a link on how to create a account, I am asking if their is a how to on setting up a server for running a delegate.

An update: I now have found a proper provider on which to run beyond bitcoin delegates and I will be learning over thr course of his week the best practices for doing so.  At that point, we will be setting up sessions for non tehcies to learn the basics.

Well just so you know...the plan is to ask that all delegates who learned how from our tuts to do a few things:

A) donate a small % (perhaps 5%?) to Beyondbitcoinx.net so users who actively propagate content and earn Xpoints can redeem them for Shares in bitshares DACs

B) donate a sizable amount (perhaps 25%?) to a cause that will improve the world in some way (ex. Khanacademy, Cancer Research, Electronic Frontier Foundation...etc) -- In return, the donating delegates should ask these causes to help them produce project updates to post on their delegate page (users will earn Xpoints to propagate this content on social media)

C) vote for the delegates of those who helped to produce the tutorials

In return, if they follow these criteria they will be placed on the Beyond Bitcoin Delegate slate, which will have a "quick link" that enables people to easily vote for them from the homepage of their respective DACs.  I will likely make a video at some point to talk a little more about this, but for now I have to bash my head against the keyboard some more...

Oh, and as always, suggestions on how to make this project better are always welcome.
