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 specified amount of time to continue staking.

The wallet must stay open and online to be able to stake.
