Begin staking!

Disclaimer:
We strongly recommend backing up your wallet after every transaction to ensure the safety of your coins. Additionally, you’ll actually need coins in your wallet to receive staking rewards, and to receive rewards you’ll most likely need to have a significant amount of coins. This is why we suggest joining our mobile PoS mining pool for more consistent returns. There, you’ll be able to receive daily rewards based on the percentage of what you’re staking in the pool.

We hope that this tutorial has helped you clearly understand how to enable staking on a windows Hshare wallet.
