We want to assure you that Massa Station is free from viruses, and the antivirus warning is a false positive. We're in the process of obtaining necessary certificates (such as from Apple for MacOS versions), which can trigger such warnings. Being a blockchain app, Massa Station interacts with distant servers and performs cryptographic operations. Antivirus warnings for new apps in this category are common but are mostly not indicative of any threat.

How to connect Massa Station to my own node​

For users operating on Debian, Ubuntu, navigate to ~/.config/massa-station. For macOS systems, navigate to ~/Library/Application Support/massa-station. If you are using Windows, the corresponding directory is %APPDATA%\massa-station. Once there, locate and modify the config_network.yaml. You'll want to append the following lines to the bottom of the file:

- https://my-node-url
ChainID: <Your node's corresponding chain ID>
Default: false # or true if you want to set this node as the default

Replace NodeName with a name of your choosing for the node, this will appear in the dropdown menu.

In the URLs section, put the URL that Massa Station will use to communicate with your node. It is usually the IP address of your node, followed by the port used by the Node Public API, which is 33035 by default.

For example:


For Massa Station to be able to connect to your node, the Public API port must be open on the node server.

Additionally, suppose you frequently access a particular node and prefer Massa Station to automatically select this node on start-up. In that case, you can make it the default node by changing the Default field to true, and change the default field for the mainnet node to false.

After these lines are added, close and reopen Massa Station. Your newly named node will now be a part of the network selection dropdown menu. Selecting it will connect Massa Station and its plugins, such as Massa Wallet, to your specified node.

For those whose nodes are on the MainNet, it's essential that the ChainID accurately reflects the MainNet's chain ID, By ensuring the correct ChainID is set, your Massa Station will be in sync with the intended network.
