A note to all noobs. Do NOT run your CPU's on a project that also has GPU applications. To improve magnitude, it is always better to use your CPU's on a CPU only project.
When you open your wallet, if you hover your mouse pointer over the white arrow in a green circle, it should say "Staking, Your Weight is XXX, Network Weight is YYY, Estimated time to earn reward is AAA days/ BBB hours." The estimated time is not that accurate and goes from being a significant overestimate immediately after you stake, to a significant underestimate just before your actually stake.
