To retrieve network data, you can choose whether to use a preconfigured remote daemon, or run a local daemon yourself.
Type I: Remote (1 step): Using the preconfigured remote daemon is much faster and easier to set up, but you're technically trusting someone else to provide you with accurate data, and it may be slow at times, since it's public and will be shared by a number of different people.
Type II: Local (14 steps): Using a local daemon takes a while longer to set up, but you have complete control over the accuracy of the reported data. Warning: If you don't keep the daemon open 24/7, you may see some inconsistencies in the reported masternode list (e.g. some masternodes appearing as
NEW_START_REQUIREDwhen they are not, etc).
