PoS-mining (staking) setup

After GIO’s becoming a PoS-coin (https://graviex.net/documents/gio_swap), a lot of holders started mining without any expensive hardware, using only their Craviocoin desktop wallet! It's easy and affordable for every owner of Linux & Windows laptop or PC!

PoS-mining (staking) conditions:

  • block reward - 5 GIO,
  • minimal amount on the wallet balance to start staking - 50 GIO,
  • maturity period (staked amount blocking) - 100 blocks,
  • minimal confirmations for stake - 225.

How to participate in PoS-mining (staking):

  • Install the Graviocoin desktop wallet appropriate for your operating system as described above.
  • Create a new Receiving address (if you haven't done it yet). The number of Receiving addresses does not affect staking.
  • NO NEED in additional settings in your desktop wallet - it's already ready for staking. 
  • Send an amount of at least 50 GIO to the address received in your Graviocoin desktop wallet:
    • enter the "Window/Receiving addresses" menu and copy the address for making a deposit,
    • transactions with larger amounts have a higher chance of a stake.
  • Transactions will participate in staking after receiving 255 confirmations. 
  • You can check the staking status via the "Window/Console" menu using the 'getstakinginfo' command ("staking": true):
  • After receiving a 5 GIO reward for a new block, the amount of coins that participated in staking is blocked for the next 100 blocks (the new block time is 2 minutes) and is displayed in the "Overview" section in the "Staked" line. During this blocking (maturity period), this amount cannot participate in staking and cannot be withdrawn from the wallet:
  • To participate in PoS-mining, your Graviocoin desktop wallet must be running, and your laptop or PC must be online (offline staking is not supported).



PoS-mining (staking) FAQ:


  • When will I get my reward? I haven't had a stake for a long time! 
    • Most likely you have a very small amount of GIO on your wallet balance. The more interest in GIO, the more miners participate in staking. As a result, miners who have a large amount of gio in their wallet have a greater chance of getting a stake faster than others. However, the one with the lower amount will also receive his reward over time!

  • How do I find out if staking is enabled in my wallet? Maybe it doesn't work? 
    • You can check the staking status via the "Window/Console" menu using the 'getstakinginfo' command ("staking": true). Transactions start participating in staking only after receiving more than 255 confirmations. After receiving a 5 GIO reward for a new block, the amount of coins that participated in staking is blocked for the next 100 blocks (the new block time is 2 minutes). So you just have to wait. By the way, the same command also shows the current difficulty of mining (staking).

  • I still don't have a single stake, maybe I need to configure something in the wallet?
    • NO NEED in additional settings in your desktop wallet - it's already ready for staking. The "Staking Setup" menu is currently inactive.

  • How often will I get stakes on my wallet? How can I calculate the periodicity?
    • This is a non-constant value. The chances of a stake depend on the current Difficulty of mining (you can it via the "Window/Console" menu using the 'getstakinginfo' command), the Number of competitors participating in mining and the amount of GIO on the balance of your wallet.

  • Why does the amount available in the Gravio wallet change?
    • After receiving a 5 GIO reward for a new block, the amount of coins (transaction) that participated in staking is blocked for the next 100 blocks (the new block time is 2 minutes) and is displayed in the "Overview" section in the "Staked" line. During this blocking (maturity period), this amount cannot participate in staking and cannot be withdrawn from the wallet.

  • Will the amount of the stake reward participate in mining?
    • Yes, of course! The reward amounts for will be added to the transaction that participated in the staking at that time, and will participate in mining.
