Address Delegation

By Qtum | Updated on Aug 12, 2021
A non-staking wallet transaction that authorizes an online Super Staker to stake the coins (UTXOs really) for that user. The delegation user does not send their coins (they keep complete control) and only sends permission for the Super Staker to provide staking for that address. Sort of a virtual Solo Staker for the user.
