Unstaking Process

How does “Unstaking” work?

Just as the action to stake locks up your POKT to your node, unstaking is the method to release POKT tokens from the network to make them spendable again. In order to preserve the integrity and reliability of the network, there is a 21-day unstaking period where your stake is neither earning rewards, nor able to be jailed/slashed.

Upon request, Support Staff can unstake your nodes, which will trigger the 21-day unstaking countdown. After the unlocking period ends, you can have the POKT tokens sent directly to the wallet of your choice, and freely make transactions with your unstaked POKT tokens.
