# add_delegation

The add_delegation method initiates your node's staking of a compatible coin. Currently QTUM and tQTUM (test tokens avalable at http://testnet-faucet.qtum.info/) have been integrated, but this functionality will be expanded to more coins in future.

Note: Only UTXOs of 100 QTUM / tQTUM will be actively staked. It is recomended to consolidate your balance into a single UTXO before initiating delegated staking. After running add_delegation, you will need to broadcast the returned hex via send_raw_transaction to complete the process. Staking will only work with legacy QTUM addresses (segwit addresses are not supported).
