# Masternode Setup
To activate one or more Scrypta masternodes you will need the official desktop wallet and the collateral required of 15,000 LYRA for each masternode.
If you want to proceed for a manual installation, you must keep in mind that the process requires technical skills, a VPS server with a dedicated IP address and time for installation.
Alternatively, you can use masternode hosting services such as The Hub.
