Undelegating From A Validator

How to undelegate your tokens from a validator

You can un-delegate tokens from a validator using the following command:

./hmy --node="https://api.s0.t.hmny.io" staking undelegate \
    --delegator-addr [ONE ADDRESS] --validator-addr [ONE ADDRESS] \ 
    --amount [AMOUNT] --passphrase


./hmy.sh -- node="https://api.s0.t.hmny.io" staking undelegate \
    --delegator-addr one1km7xg8e3xjys7azp9f4xp8hkw79vm2h3f2lade --validator-addr one1km7xg8e3xjys7azp9f4xp8hkw79vm2h3f2lade \ 
    --amount 10000 --passphrase

The CLI will ask for the passphrase for the delegator-addr keystore file.

--delegator-addr is the ONE address of the delegator (string)

--validator-addr is the ONE address of the validator (string)

--amount is the number of ONE tokens to un-delegate (float)

As a validator, for un-delegating from your own validator, delegator-addr and validator-addr will be the same.

When will I get my tokens back after un-delegating?

When you decide to un-delegate your tokens from a validator, your tokens will be released at the end of the epoch from when you un-delegate.

This means that you will NOT have access to these tokens and can NOT transfer them after choosing to un-delegate your tokens from a validator until the tokens are in your account.

If your validator didn't get elected in the last epoch, you will get the token back at the end of current epoch.
