1. Create a receiving address in GINware. 2. Send your coins from GINcoin Core to that address over the GIN network.
This will move the coins to your hardware wallet.
To migrate masternodes to GINware, the collateral transaction needs to be changed. This is because the collateral coins need to be moved to hardware wallet addresses.
A migrated masternode will lose its place in the reward queue and will need to wait the initial period before receiving rewards again. This initial waiting period is just under double the standard reward interval.
If you have a commitment discount with the GIN Platform, you can keep it! If you don't have a commitment discount, you don't need to do anything special either.
Simply head over to the settings page of your node, and choose to change the collateral. Change the collateral transaction ID to your new one after moving it to GINware, and you can keep your service.
This is just a matter of convenience - you will still be kicked from the reward queue, but you do not need to make significant changes to your GIN Platform subscription.
You can keep your IP addresses and old masternode private keys intact, but you still need to rebuild your node with a new collateral transaction.
After the new collateral transaction has been created using GINware, issuing the start command should start the masternode as normal - the remote server does not need to be touched, and will switch to using your new collateral transaction automatically.
This is just a matter of convenience - you will still be kicked from the reward queue, but you do not need to make any changes server-side.
