Quick Start- Deploy MystNode on M1 via Hotspot App

Step 1: Purchasing a Myst Nodes License

SenseCAP dApp Center has launched three dApps, namely Flux, Helium, and Myst Nodes, with plans to release more dApps gradually. To activate and run the Myst Nodes dApp within its validity period, a license is required for Myst Nodes and future dApps.

Note: The Myst Nodes license is exclusively for SenseCAP M1 and M4 devices to activate the Myst Nodes dApp. It cannot be used for other devices.

1 Login to the SenseCAP Hotspot App using your credentials.

2 Go to the license page within the app and click on the Purchase button to buy the Myst Nodes license that suits your requirements.

Step2: Adding your SenseCAP M1 to Dashboard

If already added, go directly to Step 3

1 Add hotspot to Dashboard by deeplink Helium Wallet App

2 Select the hotspot you want to add after authorizing the Helium App.

Step3: Deploying MystNodes on SenseCAP M1

1 Go to the detail page of your M1 hotspot in the App. Click on the “Deploy” button to initiate the deployment process.

2 Make sure that your M1 device is powered up and connected to a reliable network.

Note: If the network speed is less than 50 Mbps, it is recommended to switch to a network with speeds greater than 50 Mbps. This will help ensure optimal revenue for your M1 hotspot.

Step4: Activating MystNode dApp by license

1 Once the deployment of Myst Nodes is completed, you can proceed to activate it using a license.

2 Navigate to the Hotspot’s Setting page, click on the ‘Activate Myst Nodes’ button, and choose a license from the available options to activate Myst Nodes. 

3 After activating, it typically takes around 5 to 10 minutes for the node to start. Once it’s up and running, proceed to the Node UI to register the MystNode on the blockchain.

Step5: Registering the Mysterium Node to the Blockchain

1 Visit the hotspot’s setting page and click ‘Go to MystNode UI’

  • Public IP: Go to Node UI via the M1’s public IP and ensure open port 10000:60000/udp on the router to which the M1 is connected. we recommend closing the port when access via public IP is not required
  • LAN IP: If the M1 connects LAN network, you can go to Node UI via LAN IP
  • Wi-Fi IP:  If the M1 connects Wi-Fi network, you can go to Node UI via Wi-Fi IP

2 Log in to your Mysterium node account. If you don’t have an account, you can sign up using the referral code (SEEED5MYST) and then proceed to log in.

Note: In celebration of the partnership, Mysterium (the network built by all Myst Nodes) is offering an exclusive referral code: SEEED5MYST. By using the code (SEEED5MYST) during sign-up, users will be eligible for a special reward. Once the reward reaches 5 MYST, the user will receive an additional 5 MYST for free. Please note that each account can only receive this reward once.

3 Congratulations on a successful login! Your account will be automatically synchronized with the Identity of the Mysterium Node.

Note: During the registration process of a node to the blockchain, new Mysterium accounts will not be required to pay the $1 registration fee. Please keep in mind that each account is eligible for this fee waiver only once.

4 Before proceeding, please ensure that your wallet address is from an ERC-20 Polygon-compatible wallet. Mysterium officially recommends using MetaMask as it is compatible with Polygon.

5 To begin, install the MetaMask  App on your mobile phone or install the MetaMask plugin on your PC browser. This tutorial will be based on the MetaMask App.

6 Open the MetaMask App and create a new MetaMask wallet. It is crucial to write down and memorize the private keywords provided during the wallet creation process, as they cannot be recovered if lost. Take the necessary precautions to secure your private keywords.

7 Adding MYST Token to MetaMask on the Polygon Mainnet

  • Copy the Token Contract Address for MYST from the Mysterium official source. You can find this address on PolygonScan by following the link provided by Mysterium.

Note: It is essential to verify the accuracy of the MYST token details from the official Mysterium source. Please refer to the Mysterium link to ensure that the copied information, including the Token Contract Address, is correct.

MYST Token Details

Token Contract Address on PolygonScan:0x1379e8886a944d2d9d440b3d88df536aea08d9f3

Symbol: MYST

Decimals: 18

  •  Ensure that the MetaMask app’s network is set to Polygon Mainnet. If you do not see Polygon Mainnet as an option, you can go to the network settings, select “Add Network,” and find Polygon Mainnet to add it.
  • Once you have set the network to Polygon Mainnet, click on “Import tokens” at the bottom of the MetaMask app.
  • In the “Token Address” field, paste the Token Contract Address that you copied from the Mysterium official source.
  • Click on the “IMPORT” button to import the MYST token into your MetaMask wallet.

8 At this point, you can copy the MetaMask address associated with your wallet. Once you have copied the address, return to the Mysterium Node UI.

9 In the Mysterium Node UI, paste the MetaMask address you copied into the appropriate field. Then, click on the “Onboard” button to proceed.

10 Congratulations! You have successfully onboarded your SenseCAP M1 to Mysterium, and it will now begin providing decentralized VPN (dVPN) services.

11 Your SenseCAP M1 will be automatically added to the device list, where you can manage your MystNode deployment within the SenseCAP M1.

Note: The Hotspot page allows you to manage all the SenseCAP Helium Hotspots you have added, while the Device page allows you to manage various devices you have added, such as SenseCAP M4 Square and SenseCAP M1.
