Pre-mainnet migration

How to migrate to Pre-mainnet

The new version of My Mysterium Network platform is hosted on https://my.mysterium.network.

Your accounts from old https://my.mysterium.network were migrated into new https://my.mysterium.network on July the 27th, so you should be able to login using the same credentials & claim your new nodes using the same API key. Please note that your earnings were also not affected and you should keep the same amount with you!

If you are running a Raspberry Pi node (with pre-configured mystberry package) it's likely that your node has been migrated automatically.

Updating your node

If your node does not auto-update or something goes wrong. You can follow the following steps to update:

How to update your Raspberry Pi node

SSH into your Raspberry Pi using the following command:

ssh myst@ip-of-your-raspberry

The default password is mystberry.

Then to update your RPI, run:

sudo apt update; sudo apt install myst

How to update your Linux node

To update your Linux node, run:

sudo apt update; sudo apt install myst

How to update your Docker node

In order to update your Docker node, run the following commands.

Pull the testnet3 node image:

docker pull mysteriumnetwork/myst:latest

Delete the container that is already being used for running node:

docker rm -f myst

Follow the running a docker node guide (https://docs.mysterium.network/node-runners/setup/docker/) to start a new container.

Confirm your node is running

To confirm that your node is running on Linux and RPi, check the service status:

sudo systemctl status mysterium-node.service 

The output should look something like this:

mysterium@pop-os:~$ sudo systemctl status mysterium-node.service 
● mysterium-node.service - Server for Mysterium - decentralised VPN Network
     Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/mysterium-node.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
     Active: active (running) since Fri 2021-01-04 00:00:00 GMT;
       Docs: https://mysterium.network/
   Main PID: 1920 (myst)
      Tasks: 30 (limit: 19009)
     Memory: 73.0M

On Docker, list your active containers:

docker ps

Your container should be up and running:

CONTAINER ID   IMAGE                          COMMAND                  CREATED          STATUS
074a8fcb572c   mysteriumnetwork/myst:latest   "/usr/local/bin/dock…"   44 seconds ago   Up 42 seconds  

Claim your nodes

The new Pre-mainnet node has many new features including a simplified onboarding flow, super fast and cheap registrations and more. For a majority of nodes your payout (beneficiary) addresses and API keys were migrated to the new network.

Once your node is updated, you must visit the Node UI Settings page to ensure that your API key is present under MMN integration section. If not, please re-enter your API key and Save it.

For your new nodes to appear in the new My Mysterium platform you must claim them via the new Node UI or CLI app.

There are two ways of claiming your node:

  1. By logging into the built-in Node UI and going through the onboarding process.
  2. By running the below commands via Mysterium CLI (CLI is a command line interface that allows you to manipulate a Mysterium node using just your terminal. It can be started using a myst cli command):

Agree to Terms of Use (once):

myst cli --agreed-terms-and-conditions`

Claim your node:

mmn {api_key}

Note: You can find and copy your MMN API key in your MMN profile.

How to login to the Node UI

When your node is in a local network:

  • If you're using a Macbook (OSX) or have Bonjour service installed on your OS, you can access it through http://raspberrypi.local:4449/ URL.
  • On Windows, you should see a device in My Computer through the window explorer.
  • Visiting your node's IP address under the port 4449 e.g.
  • If the node is running locally on your computer you can access it through http://localhost:4449

When your node is in a data center:

  • You will have to configure your server's firewall to expose the 4449 TCP port then access the UI through http://public-ip:4449

Change payout (beneficiary) address

You can change the beneficiary address once you earn at least a little bit of MYST. The amount varies, but it's somewhere between 0.001 and 0.002 MYST. This is because a blockchain transaction will be made and you need to cover its fees.

You can change it through the Node UI during the onboarding process or through the settings page.

To change it via the CLI, run:

myst cli
identities beneficiary <identity> <beneficiary>
