How to delegate using galleon

In Tezos there are two kinds of accounts: implicit (address starts with "TZ") and originated (starts with "KT"). You can only delegate from originated ("KT") accounts. Moreover, when delegating the entire balance of the account is used. One implicit account can only delegate to a single address.

So, to delegate you need to create a KT wallet and select a delegate for it. Please refer to the step-by-step guide with screenshots below.
