How do i install a wallet (Ubuntu)

You can locate the daemon afterwards in at /Espers/src/Espersd

Synchronization is slow / I have a low amount of active connections.

If you're having a low amount of active connections, try adding nodes from the nodes list to your configuration file. A list of current nodes can be found here.

On Windows, the configuration file can be found at C:\Users\(your-username)\AppData\Roaming\ESP\Espers.conf.

On Mac OS it's located at /Users/(your-username)/Library/Application Support/ESP/Espers.conf.

How do i stake my coins

Your Epsers needs to mature in your wallet approx 2 hours before they can start staking.
You can have your wallet encrypted, but it needs to be unlocked. You can do this from settings. Wallet needs to stay open and connected.
