Setup your wallet
Follow wallet setup instructions first at the Wallet Setup Guide.
Get some Helium from an exchange, your friendly Heliumite neighbor or claim your HLM from the airdrop. Claiming guide can be read at Heliumlabs.
Wait for your Helium to have 101 confirmations on the transactions tab.
Unlock your wallet
Unlock your wallet from the settings menu. Make sure you select “for anonymization, automint and staking only” checkbox so your funds aren’t spendable by anyone visiting your computer.
Ready to stake
You’re already staking! Soon you will have a staking reward sent to you in your transactions list. If you aren’t receiving any rewards look at the bottom right corner on your client to make sure the second icon says “staking is active”.
