Use the following instructions to enable staking in your wallet.

Open your wallet, and make sure your wallet is connected with a node.
Your wallet is connected when you see the icon Wallet connections in the left corner of your wallet.

Leave your wallet open and unlocked to stake.
Keep in mind that stake can only be generated when you have a balance in your wallet.

The following only applies if you encrypted your wallet.

You can unlock your wallet using the following instructions.

Go to Help.
Click Debug Window.
This is the console where you will execute all commands.

Type this command to start staking:

walletpassphrase REPLACE_WITH_YOUR_PASSWORD 9999999 true

Replace the text “REPLACE_WITH_YOUR_PASSWORD” with your password.

The number 9999999 is the amount of seconds you want to leave your wallet unlocked for staking.
