For staking on our Pool, you would simply enter pcs1vzuadmp42slqapdm8eevm6g8ntm3hlvgptmyjy

Almost stupidly simple, right? And that’s the point.

What happens next?

With this setup, each time bunch of your coins stake, they will get “moved” to the Pool. This is the best way to transition to staking on a Pool.

This is, however, not ideal when you have little amounts of coins, as it would take ages for them to stake by themselves. For these cases, there’s “zapping”.

Zapping coins for instant cold-staking

With cold-staking activated, you can “zap” your coins and move them instantly to staking pool.

While it is certainly useful for smaller amounts of coins (<1,000), keep it mind that “zapping” sends all your coins to the pool in 1 transaction (not ideal from privacy point of view).
