How to set up a PRESEARCH node in 5 minutes!

Presearch.org is an awesome decentralized, unbiased and uncensored SEARCH ENGINE that even pays you for searching. – How to set up a PRESEARCH node and earn passive income.

To sign up please use this working Presearch.org coupon link:  Get 25 PRE tokens for free! 

You will earn more PRE tokens by just using the search engine, but you can earn even more by setting up a Presearch node.

A node is basically a computer that helps the network to compute and distribute search results.

You can set up a node at home or use an online VPS provider like Racknerd.com. Click on VPS, and then chose the following pretty cheap plan (512 MB RAM – 1 vCore – 15 GB RAID-10 SSD Cached – 500 GB @ 1Gbps – 1 Free IP -$22.99 /year)

Another very good VPS provider is https://dedipath.com – they have different locations in the US even for the cheapest plan of $20/year! So far their server seems to be very fast and the reliability score also went up faster than normal. I will post an update about my experience with Dedipath soon! (512 MB RAM – 1 Core – 10 GB SSD – 1 TB @ 1 Gbps)

HINT: If you get the message “docker.io not found” after you’ve entered “sudo apt install docker.io”, just enter “sudo apt update” – and then again “sudo apt install docker.io”. This should work!

UPDATE: Even though the “Reliability Score” of my first Dedipath VPS (server location: Los Angeles, CA) is lower than my two Racknerd.com servers, the return is about the same. I also did set up one Dedipath VPS in Dallas, Texas now, which has the highest “Reliability Score” of 83 so far. Another Dedipath VPS in Atlanta, GA is showing the lowest score of only 54, even though it’s up and running since the Dallas, TX server…

IMPORTANT: Don’t waste your money using a better VPS for your Presearch node than the minimum requirement. You likely won’t earn more #PRESEARCH tokens but you will spend more for the same return. I’ve tried it with one node, which means that I’ve doubled RAM (1 GB instead of 512 MB) and bandwidth (2 TB instead of 1 TB) but the return is the same as with the smaller VPS, at the same location from the same provider.

How to set up a PRESEARCH node

I did my Presearch Node setup on a Mac and the following video describes it perfectly. Just follow this video step by step and you will finish your setup in no time! Amendment: The new requirements are 2000 PRE tokens per node (March 2022).

This document also helps – https://docs.presearch.org/nodes/setup

You can buy the needed Presearch Cryptocurrency token on https://www.kucoin.com/ or on https://www.coinex.com/.

There’s also a possibility to buy Presearch tokens directly on Presearch.org but fees and slippage are pretty high.

Reliability Score Presearch Node: It will take a few days until your reliability score is high enough to actually earn some nice passive income.

As a node operator, you may be eligible to receive current or future Presearch NFTs. Please connect your Web3 wallet on the NFT Wallet page if interested.

The following information is from the Presearch website:

Run a Node

Do you support decentralization and an open internet that isn’t dominated by a handful of Big Tech companies?

Now you can be part of the solution by operating a Presearch Node and helping to power the Presearch decentralized search engine.

Presearch Nodes are used to process user search requests, and node operators earn Presearch PRE tokens for joining and supporting the network.

SETUP Installation Terminal Commands

  1. ssh root@yourIP
  2. sudo apt install docker.io
  3. docker stop presearch-node ; docker rm presearch-node ; docker stop presearch-auto-updater ; docker rm presearch-auto-updater ; docker run -d –name presearch-auto-updater –restart=unless-stopped -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock presearch/auto-updater –cleanup –interval 900 presearch-auto-updater presearch-node ; docker pull presearch/node ; docker run -dt –name presearch-node –restart=unless-stopped -v presearch-node-storage:/app/node -e REGISTRATION_CODE=XXXyourPRESEARCHregistrationCODEXXX presearch/node ; docker logs -f presearch-node

Replace: XXXyourPRESEARCHregistrationCODEXXX with guess what… “Your node registration code” which you will find here: https://nodes.presearch.com/dashboard

It’s easy to get started!

Server requirements

Presearch nodes with fast internet and low latency connection to the Presearch Gateway are currently prioritized. You do not need much disk space, much memory, or much CPU current to run a node, and running a more powerful server does not currently increase node rewards. We recommend running many lightweight nodes to optimize your reward earnings relative to your server costs.

Node operator rewards

Rewards are paid to all node operators who stake at least 2,000 PRE to their node.

Each of your staked nodes will qualify for the base reward paid to incentivize participation in the network.

Those who stake more than 2,000 PRE to their node are eligible to earn additional rewards.
