Your wallet will indicate it is staking by displaying a green colored leaf icon in the bottom right corner of the wallet interface. If that leaf icon is gray in colour, it indicates that staking is not active.
Note that when you start the wallet, it will need to fully synchronize before staking becomes active.
First try closing and re-opening your wallet, allowing it to completely synchronize – your wallet will need to fully sync in order to begin staking.
You can confirm your wallet is staking by using the Debug Console (Tools > Console) and running the following command. The result should be “true” if staking is enabled.
When will coins not stake?
- If the coins are newly transferred into an address and have not yet had time to achieve enough confirmations.
- Coins that are locked in an address reserved to a masternode. This is indicated as a lock icon next to the address.
