Question and Answer
Q: My Wallet has stopped syncing, When I start my wallet it hangs or disappears.
A: This is normal some time your blockchain got corrupted you need to do the following steps:
1. Keep your backup file somewhere safe off your PC.
2. Delete the folder where you installed the wallet.
3. Find the secondary HTMLCoin folder and delete it.
Go to Run (Windows+R), or just press the windows
Type %appdata% in the searchbar and press enter
Delete the HTMLCOIN folder
Goto Application Support Folder, Library, Application Support
4. Install new wallet from » http://www.htmlcoin.com/wallets
5. Paste your “wallet.dat” file in the install directory of your new wallet.
It will ask you to overwrite the existing file. Please confirm.
Start the wallet.
Q: After Installing and Resync the new Wallet I cannot see my coins!
A: If after upgrading and sync the wallet 100% if you see your coins are missing then do the following step:
1. Add zapwallettxes=2 to your htmlcoin.conf file. You need to remove that line after restarting the client.
It basically makes the client rescan, delete TXs and rescan the chain so it could resolve the problem.
If that does not work then you would need to delete the contents of the date directory except for wallet.dat and sync the entire chain from scratch. If even that fails we could assume either that your wallet is corrupt
and needs to be restored from backup or some sort of user error. If you can see the address on the explorer with the balance,
you could try to dump the corresponding private key, as long as you can get the private key for their address you will be able to recover the coins one way or another.

Q: Why is my wallet not staking much coins ?
A: There's network weight and wallet weight, your chance of staking is calculated is your local wallet weight, balance, against the network weight,
balance of the network. More coins in your wallet, the higher your weight and the higher chance of staking.
Q: Why are all my coins not staking only a portion of that is staking?
One wallet address can have lots of UTXOs. (Unspent Transaction Output.)
Your balance is spread over lots of different amounts, not all of these are used to stake at once.
Use listunspent from the debug console to see all your UTXOs, those are what are used to stake.
Those coins were recently used to stake a block and are in the process of confirming before being spendable again,
after 500 blocks those coins will return to the available balance.
