If you see the error: "Oops, it looks like you don't have enough Resource Credits to transact on the Hive blockchain." you might consider taking more HIVE.POWER to do more activity on the Hive blockchain.
Staked Hive Power allows Hive blockchain accounts to do transfers and other activities over the Hive Blockchain network. A standard account can already do many transfers per day for free. Also, Resource Credits regenerate back. So accounts that don't have a lot of activity on the Hive blockchain may not need this. But staking some Hive Power allows you to do more transfers. For example, after you transferred all your cards to another account or when you combined a lot of cards - for more information about this subject, see this article.
If you're looking to rent (=not buy) more Hive Power/Resource Credits with just a small amount of Hive token, you can follow the steps below.
