How to unstake stkATOM to get pATOM¶
Unstake your stkATOM to get pATOM after the lock-up period of 21 days (defined by Cosmos). Check the status of your unstaking assets on the Transactions page or Unbonded Tokens card.
- From Home click the Staking in the task pane; the Stake page appears by default.
- Click the Unstake tab
- Enter the number of stkATOM.
- Click Unstake to initiate a transaction in Metamask or any other connected Wallet application. Note the Gas Fee and Gas Limit before you send the unstake transaction. MetaMask notifies you to confirm the details.
- Click Confirm.
After your transaction is confirmed, newly minted pATOM are locked for the unbonding period of ~21 days (7 epochs of 3 days each). You will not be able to withdraw the unstaked stkATOM during this time. You can verify the status of your unstaking assets on the Transactions page or in the Unbonded Tokens region, the right pane of the application.
