I set up staking for my divi coins a few weeks ago (around August 4), but I haven’t seen the amount grow at all, even though I made sure to press the enable button each time I turned on my computer, so I’m worried that I’m not doing it right. Can you clarify for me if it is staking when I press the enable button, or is there something else I need to do? I also noticed that divi staking didn’t appear to use any energy at all when I left my computer on while not using it for anything else. Is that normal, or is that an indicator that my staking hasn’t been working?
Also, I’m aware that it’s better to leave your computer on 24/7 to maximize your divi profits, but my computer (a laptop) burns out if I don’t turn it off to let it recharge for a few hours, but I turn the divi staking back on when I turn my computer back on to enable the staking again. Does divi still stake during the times my computer is on, or does my computer have to be left on all the time for staking to work at all? Is it actually profitable to do what I have been doing (stake while my computer is on), or better to pool divi with others to ensure that it is always running, and perhaps together with others’ divi as a node? I know that pooling companies charge around 8% interest, so I was wondering if it is more profitable to stake, or to pool and pay the fees that come with it.
