Is there a place besides Reddit for me or others to contribute to a staking guide? **Table of Contents:** * QTUM Staking overview - Like mining, staking won't work unless the QTUM software is actively running and connected to the network, typically 24 hours a day.

($10 Raspberry Pi micro SD can be destroyed after printing if you want). * **USB** - what are the minimum fields needed to keep value in cold storage?

What are the minimum required fields? What are the steps to restore and transfer QTUM from a paper wallet next year or 5 years from now? * **Hardware Wallet**: offline, not staking, similar to keeping QTUM keys on airgap, USB, or paper wallet.
