How to move rewards into a private wallet address

Hello. Guys.
I am a SPO and I have never claim rewards yet.
Anyone can kindly teach me how to claim stake pool rewards?

destinationAddress=$(cat payment.addr)
echo destinationAddress: $destinationAddress


cntools or coincashew?


coincashew . thanks.

destinationAddress=$(cat payment.addr)
echo destinationAddress: $destinationAddress

Where my private address (receive, for example, Nami) should be written?

When u registered the pool u also registered a wallet for rewards… the wallet has 1 stake address (for rewards) and payment address (amount which can be spent)

Now u must move the rewards from stake address to payment address

PS: if the wallet was imported via mnemonic u can withdraw the rewards from wallet app

It seems the Coincashew script is not 100% correct in terms of destinationAddress being the address which is where you're moving your reward to, as throughout the script they are using the payment.addr.

You need to check that in more detail and update commands where required. Let us know if you are not sure what to do.

Assuming your stake pool’s ticker is MEOW, you don’t have any rewards to withdraw. There are 2 reasons:

  1. The pool never minted a block
  2. The pledge is not met. Even if the pool is minting blocks, the rewards will be 0 in this case.

For the moment when you will want to withdraw the rewards, you will need to do the following steps:

  1. Declare 2 variables with your stake address and an address where you have funds to pay for the transaction (and you have the signing key). I assumed this is your pledge address below.
  1. Query the stake address to see the rewards amount that you can withdraw and define a variable with this amount.

cardano-cli query stake-address-info --mainnet --address $STAKE_ADDRESS

        "delegation": "pool1llwfa6erdh7k87j06y2z9999jcc84cnezwhg9e2sulrgwzrsug4",
        "address": "stake1uxmzszyq0amup32al34yqnkhrrv27mq5mkghgp7kjuchytgnsep6p",
        "rewardAccountBalance": 0

Assuming the “rewardAccountBalance”: is 340000000 (the fixed fee), you would write:

  1. Find an UTxO that you can use to pay the transaction fees. This is the stake address for the MEOW pool.

cardano-cli query utxo --mainnet --address ${ADDRESS}

                           TxHash                                 TxIx        Amount
1b979f12835310a58c1150e134c7863d9dafce58255d7f2e7ba5bd1dd2cdf894     0        4613866 lovelace + TxOutDatumNone

You will be able to use the UTxO above, which has the index 0. You define the following variable:

  1. Now you will need to create the transaction, sign it with the stake signing key and payment signing key, and then submit it to your node. I am assuming below that your stake signing key is stake.skey, your payment signing key is payment.skey, and they are both in the current folder.
cardano-cli transaction build \
--mainnet \
--alonzo-era \
--witness-override 2 \
--tx-in ${TXIN} \
--withdrawal "${STAKE_ADDRESS}+${REWARDS_AMOUNT}" \
--change-address ${ADDRESS} \
--out-file tx.raw

Running this will display the transaction fees:
Estimated transaction fee: Lovelace 171265

In case you want to send the rewards to a different address and the change back to the original address, you can do change the transaction like this:
(this is where you will send the rewards).

cardano-cli transaction build \
--mainnet \
--alonzo-era \
--witness-override 2 \
--tx-in ${TXIN} \
--withdrawal "${STAKE_ADDRESS}+${REWARDS_AMOUNT}" \
--change-address ${ADDRESS} \
--out-file tx.raw

You can also send a different amount to the new address, not exactly the rewards amount, and in this case you will need to write a different amount in the line:

  1. Now you need to sign and submit the transaction.
cardano-cli transaction sign \
--tx-body-file tx.raw \
--signing-key-file stake.skey \
--signing-key-file payment.skey \
--mainnet \
--out-file tx.signed

cardano-cli transaction submit \
--tx-file tx.signed \

Before signing and submitting the transaction, you can also check it to be sure it is 100% ok.
cardano-cli transaction view --tx-body-file tx.raw
The result will be:

If you are happy with the output, sign it and submit it.

I hope this will also help other people to create a simple transaction for withdrawing the rewards.
