    Welcome @ArcticWolf_11

    The chain had some issues you can read about it here


    What you should do:

    Upgrade to wallet version (Help > Check for update)
    Bootstrap (File > Reload Blockchain) your wallet and ensure it's synchronized to the same block number as the public block explorer (https://chainz.cryptoid.info/vrc/). If you are having issues with synchronization, navigate to the following folder:

    Windows: %AppData%\VeriCoin
    Mac: /Library/Application Support/VeriCoin
    Linux: ~/.vericoin

    and remove the folder txleveldb as well as the files peers.dat and blk0001.dat. Download and place the file vericoin.conf in the same directory (http://www.vericoin.info/downloads/vericoin.conf).

    You may need to rescan your wallet using the file menu option as well, after syncing.

    Thanks, so how long will it take before my coins start staking?

    After 8 hours your coins are ready to stake.

    Okay, thanks. I just got 3 VRC worth of interest about an hour or 2 ago and I just looked back at it and now it says not staking, earning stake-time. All my coins are on staking and not in the spendable section. Does that happen normally?

    Yes this is normal.

    You can find most information about staking inside this document https://www.vericoin.info/downloads/VeriCoinPoSTWhitePaper10May2015.pdf

    Hope this helps! :thumbsup:
