I'm having trouble unstaking / withdrawing my SOL

  • Updated

If you are having trouble unstaking or withdrawing your SOL it could be for the following reasons:

  1. You don't have enough SOL in your wallet to pay for the transaction. Make sure you have enough SOL(at least 0.05) in your wallet to pay for the transaction. SOL being staked can't be used to pay for transactions so you will need to deposit a little more. 
  2. Your stake is still "Activating" or "Deactivating". You will need to wait for your stake to be "Inactive" in order to withdraw it. It could take up to 2-3 days. Please read: Why does my stake say "Activating" or "Deactivating" still?
  3. You still need to withdraw your SOL once it is "Inactive". There is an additional step to move your SOL back into your wallet. Once your stake is "Inactive" you will need to follow these instructions: How do I withdraw my stake?
