This guide will teach you how to check to see if you are staking.

Staking is available with Spacecoind or Spacecoin-QT.

Table of Contents

Please Note

With Spacecoin-QT the commands will need to be entered in the console. This is accessible at Help -> Debug Window -> Console.

For staking to work the wallet needs to be unlocked. If you encrypted your wallet you will need to unlock it with the command walletpassphrase.

Example: walletpassphrase "your passphrase" 3600

3600 is the time in seconds the wallet will stay unlocked before locking again. This means you will need to unlock it again after this amount of time to continue staking.


  1. Navigate to spacecoin-cli or Console depending on your wallet.

  2. Enter the command getgenerate.

It will return:

  "staking": true,
  "generate": false,
  "numthreads": 0

If you see "staking": true, then you are staking!

If you see "staking": false, then you are not staking. Enable staking by entering the command setgenerate true 0.
