How long does it take for coins to mature in wallet and stake

Maturity for mined blocks (PoS or PoW) is 30 blocks. Which should be ~30 minutes. Then, minimum staking age is 24 hours. So, roughly, you need to hold mined coins for 25 hours before they will stake.

Make sure you have your wallet unlocked if it is encrypted. Staking only happens when the wallet is unlocked. You can unlock for staking only and still retain the security of sending needing the password again.

FYI, maximum stake age is 4 years.

Technically speaking, the 75k will be fully confirmed in 4 blocks. So, you will have 4 minutes plus the minimum staking age of 24 hours on transfered coins.

Mined (PoW) or minted (PoS) coins take 30 blocks plus the 24 hours.

In a nutshell, yes, 25 hours covers all bases. If you never encrypted, you need not worry about unlocking because it can not be locked. I only mentioned that because sometimesit is overlooked.

Happy staking! :)

It's a great wallet, I'm delighted with it. Today I have had 7 shares accepted. Total is 17 for my first 3 days.

My staking got me 60 ish Bern today. I'm well happy. Steven, you the man!  ;)

Hey guys, don't know if anyone of you have had a problem with the miner in the wallet but I can't mine anymore as each time I extract the files from the .zip folder the minered.exe file keeps being quarantined by my anti virus as it says it's been corrupted with a Trojan!! What's that please? I also can't get anymore than 5 connections. I used to get 12 but about 3 weeks ago I started having problems.

My staking is fine though and I've almost 850k Bern now :)

You need to add the minerd.exe to the exception list in your anti virus.

It does not have a trojan. The mining software I bundled with the wallet is from a very respectable developer in the industry (tpruvot). You see, some software will embed mining software and mine against your knowledge. For this reason, most anti-virus programs think all mining software is malicious. This mining software is not malicious because you do intend to mine.

The network is strong and your wallet will work with few connections. Leave it run and it should discover more peers.
