Creating a Massa Node by Altay Crypto


Massa is a truly decentralized blockchain controlled by thousands of people. Massa proves to be one of the most decentralized networks due to the high number of nodes and the fact that most of these nodes are routable.


Testnet 7.0 Started !


The Massa community is growing and developing day by day.

Creating a Node ( TEST 7.X )

To create a Massa node, make sure that your server meets the system requirements.

Minimum System Requirements

8 GB Memory, 4CPU, a stable internet connection that is not choppy and Ubuntu operating system.


After accessing our server, we’ll update it using the following codes.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

We have updated our server, now let’s go to the port settings.

In some server providers, port settings are made from the panel. If yours is, then skip this part and start with the node creation part. Example Google Cloud

#Let's activate the firewall so that we can set the ports
sudo ufw enable
#to open the required ports, write the following codes, respectively
sudo ufw allow 22
sudo ufw allow ssh
sudo ufw allow 31244
sudo ufw allow 31245
#let's view the ports we have opened
sudo ufw status

we have set our ports, now the image should look like this

sudo ufw status

if it looks like this, let’s restart our server


You can check the open ports here

ports may not come immediately wait 10 minutes

When our server starts, all our ports will be set up.


Let’s download the necessary libraries to install our Massa node

Write the commands in order

  • on Ubuntu, these libs must be installed
  • sudo apt install pkg-config curl git build-essential libssl-dev
  • install rustup
  • curl --proto '=https' --tlsv1.2 -sSf | sh
  • configure path
  • source $HOME/.cargo/env
  • check rust version
  • rustc --version
  • install nigthly
  • rustup toolchain install nightly
  • set it as default
  • rustup default nightly
  • check rust version
  • rustc --version
  • clone this repo
  • git clone --branch testnet

if you have completed these steps, we have installed the necessary libraries for Massa

Our next step is to run the node and client

First, let’s create a new window

screen -S massa

cd massa/massa-node/config let’s go to the folder

nano config.toml

we have created a file in which we will register our ip address

routable_ip = "AAA.BBB.CCC.DDD"

“”AAA.BBB.CCC.DDD” type the ip adress of your server

CTRL + S save the file and CTRL + X exit by pressing

we have done what should be for a routable node

cd ../

backwards from our location -> massa/massa-node

now we can start our node

RUST_BACKTRACE=full cargo run — release |& tee logs.txt

let’s wait a little

Rustup error

If you receive this error, type the following code and run it again

rustup default nightly-2021–12–01

we have successfully executed our node, it’s time to run the client

CTRL + A + C 

we create a new window with the command

we go to the file location where the client is located and run

cd massa/massa-client/
cargo run --release

we have successfully executed the node and client

Client Screen

now let’s create a new wallet


to view our wallet, let’s type


we need to ask for tokens from the tap so that we can take the next step


Go to the discord server and enter the wallet address you created in the client.

Make sure you don’t type in your private key

we have enough tokens to buy a roll

buy_rolls adress 1 0
#enter your wallet address in the adress section

now let’s put our node on the network

node_add_staking_private_keys privateKey
#Enter your private key in the privateKey section

Our next step is to register our node on the discord bot


Go to this channel and click on the uptick emoji, and the bot will send you a message.

node_testnet_rewards_program_ownership_proof your_staking_address 00000000000

in the your_staking_address section, type the address of the wallet that we created on the client and copy it without disturbing anything else.

type this code into the client write the returned value to the discord bot

Send your server’s ip address to the Discord bot

Congratulations we have successfully registered your node.

CTRL + A + D

exit the window that we created by pressing.

if u want re-enter screen -r massa write
