Unstake Requests

After the unstake request has been submitted, there is a 15 day cooldown period before AVAX is claimable. This request will be shown here, along with the earliest redeemable time and a cancel request. After the 15 day cooldown period, AVAX will be claimable under Active Claims.

Active Claims

AVAX will be claimable here after the 15 day cooldown period. You will be able to claim AVAX within the 2 day redemption period. If you do not claim it after the 2 day redemption period, your request expires and will appear on the Expired Requests tab.

Expired Requests

If you do not claim your unstaked AVAX within the 2 day window above, your AVAX would automatically be matched with validators on the Avalanche network again.
Your original sAVAX amount will be available to be reclaimed under Expired Requests. Once claimed, you will need to undergo the unstaking process again.
