The wallet will need to close to complete the process. Also all backups you have made are now obsolete. You will need to make new ones.

 

When you restart the wallet on the right hand side you will see a lock that means your wallet is encrypted an locked.

Fill in your password en you have a checkbox (only for stacking) if you unlock it only for stacking If you keep this box check you still cant send any coins away from your wallet.

If you uncheck that box you will be able to send coins.

Until this part most crypto's are following and do most of these things.

 

But what you also should do is dump your private key.

 

Go to help --> debugscreen

If you get this error

This means your wallet is not unlocked yet or only for stacking like min was at this time

 

Go back lock your wallet if it is unlocked only for staking open wallet again and uncheck only for stacking
