How to Setup Staking

  1. Download the latest wallest release with the "Latest Release" tag. Do not use a "Pre-Release" build.

  2. Let the wallet sync. This process should start automatically.

  3. While waiting to sync, encrypt the wallet by going to Settings > Encrypt Wallet

    • A prompt to create a password will appear. Make sure to backup this password in a safe place. It may be required to restart the wallet after this
  4. Once fully synced, you will need to deposit funds to the wallet.

    • To view your wallet address, go to File > Receiving addresses
  5. To start staking, go to Settings > Unlock Wallet. Check the "For anonymization and staking only" box, enter the password created above, click the "OK" button.

  6. When the wallet is staking successfully, you will see a green circle with and up-arrow at the bottom right corner of the wallet.

    • If the funds were just deposited for the first time, the funds need to mature(reach confirmation threshold) so it may take and hour or so for the icon to turn green
