Presearch MasterNodes Linux / Mac install instructions

Masternodes ?!
They are Cryptocurrency full nodes that reward the node operator to perform the core consensus functions of running a blockchain.
A masternode operator requires a certain investment to join the network and get rewarded, but will earn a constant income in return.

Here is how to install and run a masternode using docker on Linux / Mac and help power the Presearch decentralized search engine.

1. You have to sign-up and get a registration code for your node at

2. Docker installation:

sudo apt-get remove docker docker-engine containerd runc
sudo apt-get -y update && sudo apt-get -y upgrade
sudo apt-get -y install apt-transport-https ca-certificates curl gnupg-agent software-properties-common
curl -fsSL | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-key fingerprint 0EBFCD88
sudo add-apt-repository "deb [arch=amd64] $(lsb_release -cs) stable"
sudo apt-get -y update
sudo apt-get -y install docker-ce docker-ce-cli

3. Start the node:

sudo docker run -d --name presearch-auto-updater --restart=unless-stopped -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock containrrr/watchtower --interval 300 presearch-node
sudo docker pull presearch/node
sudo docker run -dt --name presearch-node --restart=unless-stopped -v presearch-node-storage:/app/node -e REGISTRATION_CODE=<REPLACE THIS WITH YOUR CODE> presearch/node

Some useful Docker commands:

docker ps                        // list running containers
docker container ls -a           // list all containers
docker logs -f <container_name>  // display logs
docker stop <container_name>     // stop container
docker start <container_name>    // start container
docker rm <container_name>       // delete container


Nodes with fast internet and low latency connection to the Presearch Gateway are currently prioritized.
Running a more powerful server does not currently increase node rewards, better run many lightweight nodes to optimize your reward earnings relative to your server costs.

Node operator rewards:

Rewards are paid to all node operators who stake at least 1,000 PRE to their node and those who stake more are eligible to earn additional rewards.
Each of your staked nodes will qualify for the base reward paid to incentivize participation in the network. is the Official Telegram dedicated to the masternodes.
