Entangled Nodes Explained

PART 1

GET WALLET
To create a node through StrongBlock, a digital wallet is needed. MetaMask is a widely used wallet that is compatible with StrongBlock's platform.

There are multiple configurations of wallets that you can use.

We do not support multisig wallets.

GET ETH
You will need to buy some Ethereum to cover gas fees for the transaction. Please review our FAQ page on suggested ETH in your wallet.

GET STRNGR INTO WALLET
Connect your wallet to Uniswap or your crypto exchange of preference and buy 10 STRNGR tokens into your wallet.

ADD EXTENSION
MetaMask can be added as an extension onto your browser through the MetaMask website. Chrome, Brave, Firefox are browsers customers are successfully using.

CONNECT WALLET
Connect your wallet containing the 10 STRNGR to the app.strongblock.com page.

CHECK GAS FEES
Gas fees fluctuate depending on the crypto-economy and can be checked through Etherscan Gas Tracker.



PART 2

START CREATING NODE
Now that your wallet is connected and you have the necessary currency, go to app.strongblock.com page and click “Create your Node”.

NAME YOUR NODE
The node name is up to you. Consider using a naming convention that helps you track your nodes.

GIVE YOUR NODE A DESCRIPTION
The node description is up to you. Consider using a description convention that helps you track your nodes. Example: "Node-1 Sept 2021"

REVIEW TERMS
Please review our Terms and Conditions and check the box if you agree.

APPROVE STRNGR
If this is the first time your wallet is interacting with the Token Contract, you will need to approve the spending of STRNGR.

This "Approve STRNGR" step must be completed before you can create your node. You will be charged a separate gas fee for this Approve transaction and this is a one-time approval.

After the Approve transaction is complete, the Submit button will activate, click on that Submit button to complete the Create Your Node process.

CONFIRM
Make sure to have enough Ethereum in your wallet to cover the gas fees for the transaction. If gas fees are too high, you can wait until they go down to create your node.

If you don’t have enough ETH or STRNGR you may receive an error message, letting you know your wallet does not have enough funds.

WAIT FOR NODE TO CREATE
After submitting your transaction, it can take 30 minutes or more for the node to appear. Do not submit your payment again. When your node is created, you will see it under the “My Nodes” tab.


PART 3

WHAT’S NEXT
Once your node appears, you will be able to view accumulated rewards, pay Node Fees and claim rewards.

Node fees are not automatically deducted. When you create your node, the first monthly fee is included. After that, you will need to pay the node fee manually for each 30 day period. There is a 60 day prepay limit on Node Fee payment.

Please see the FAQ page for answers to many common questions.

NODE NOT APPEARING?
Check your wallet transactions for:

- Approve transaction
If you only Approved the spending of STRNGR, but did not spend the STRNGR yet, the process is not complete.

Look at your wallet balance to see if the 10 STRNGR is still in your wallet. Then, go back to the Create a Node page, fill out and click Submit.

- Pending transactions
Do not process the Node Create transaction again! Speed up or cancel the transaction. Click here for more information on speeding up/cancelling a transaction.

- Transaction canceled because it ran out of gas
You will need to process this transaction again. We recommend never using low gas. Click here for more details about adjusting gas in MetaMask.
