Minting SparkleCoin is the process of collecting rewards by contributing to our network security, by "solving" a Proof of Stake block. This probability is calculated by the number of coins you have within a transaction in your wallet, and the number of days the coins within that transaction have been in your wallet. The maximum number of days that your coins can reach their highest minting probability percentage is 90 days. After 90 days, your coin age no longer contributes to the purpose of solving a block. The mint probability percentage is the likelihood that your coins will mint new coins (the higher the percentage, the higher the probability for your coins to mint). The reward for minting can be as much as 1% per annum. You do not receive this reward evenly over time, instead it comes in chunks every time you "solve" a Proof of Stake block. The amount you receive from each block is based on the coin age used to mint that block. In order to mint, you must leave your wallet open at all times, and "unlocked for minting" if you have encrypted your wallet.
