I know Peercoin is proof-of-stake, but if I use an online wallet, will I receive any of the coins generated for my stake? Or do I have to have to download a desktop wallet?

  • Do you have a particular online wallet in mind? Different ones might work in different ways. – Nate Eldredge Jul 31 '15 at 2:06

  • @Nate Eldredge, no, I don't have a specific one in mind, I was more wondering if there are any which are definitely known to give you the peercoins you've staked. – lorentzfactor Aug 2 '15 at 21:39

If it is a web wallet that holds your private keys, then it is certainly possible that the service is staking your coins for you, but this may or may not be a feature that the developers of the particular web wallet have implemented. It is also possible that the web wallet creators take the stake as a payment for their service, which I hope the service would be transparent about.

If the web wallet is a watch-only wallet, then it cannot stake for you. [1]
