Undelegating Tokens

If you want to undelegate tokens from a validator, you can do so at any time. Note that undelegation costs approximately 0.5 CSPR.


This guide assumes that you have previously delegated tokens to a validator using a block explorer or the Casper client.

Accessing the Undelegation Feature

You can access the undelegation functionality in three ways.

Option 1: Click Wallet from the top navigation menu and then click Undelegate Stake.

Option 2: Click Validators from the top navigation menu. Using the validators table, find the validator you wish to undelegate from, and click the Undelegate Stake button.

Stepping through the Undelegation Process

The following instructions will take you through the undelegation process, starting with the "Undelegation details" screen.

Step 1 - Undelegation details

  1. Specify the validator from whom you want to undelegate your tokens if you have reached this screen using the Wallet drop-down menu. The search box will automatically show you the validators with whom you have staked. Otherwise, verify the pre-populated key in the Validator field.
  2. Enter the amount of Casper tokens you want to undelegate.
  3. Click Next.

  1. Click Sign in the Signature Request window to finalize the undelegation. The stake undelegation initiates as soon as the corresponding deploy is signed. Here is the expected output:

It may take 1-2 minutes for the undelegation details to become available. Click "Deploy Details" for more information.

Note that your undelegated tokens will appear in your account automatically after a 7-era delay of approximately 14 hours.
