We just released a short introduction into Cold Staking for Solaris Platform.
Cold Staking 🥶 - What is it and how do I do it?
Don't forget, Solaris Swap Promotion is still running until the 23rd of November!
Every single swap over 100 $XLR is automatically entered into the draw, and a random TXID will be chosen live on Periscope and win 10% of that swap amount.
If you have set-up Cold Staking on your Solaris Core wallet, then you should back-up your wallet file to ensure easy recoverability of the Cold Balance.
The 12 word mnemonic phrase does work to recover main balance and the cold balance will still be there, but not visible and requires special techniques to recover. The wallet file ensures you can easily restore your cold balance in the future.
You can find the location of your wallet file by going to the ADVANCED tab in your wallet and look at the Wallet data directory.
Go to that folder and make a copy of the file which starts with the name of your wallet and ends with *.wallet.json.
When you want to restore this wallet, just put back this file into the same folder on the new computer.
Happy Sunday everyone!
We have just released a script for easy Hot Wallet setup on VPS for Cold Staking. Thanks to@thecrypt0hunter from trustaking.com in creating such as an easy tool for our users!
As such we have also updated the How-To Guides on our website. They now specifically cover step by step the process needed to start cold staking using trustaking.com or your own VPS. Hopefully this clears up some confusion and makes the process even simpler.
You can find both of the How-To guides here: https://www.solarisplatform.com/coldstaking.html
Let us know if you are having any issues with the VPS script!

Do you want to see how easy it will be to set-up cold-staking in the new Solaris Core wallet? Check out the video!
Process is simple:
To withdraw the coins from Cold-Staking, you simple provide the address to send your cold-staking coins back and the amount you want to withdraw.
Using Cold-Staking the coins always stay in your own wallet. The HOT WALLET has no access to them and there is no way to get access to your funds even if the HOT WALLET gets hacked.
