Incorrect amount deducted for delegation?


Anyone else have unexpected additional ADA sent during a delegation operation? My first delegation was supposed to cost .XX ADA but 2.XX ADA was sent instead.

Hi Koldar, This has been asked and answered as below

Yep all good, i sent this to support
The quoted fee for staking on the transaction page was quoted as 0.174433 ADA
Can we check the fee deduction is working correctly, it seems a bit misleading to quote a transaction fee of 0.174433 then actually deduct 2.174433

The response supports the replies above

Thank you for contacting the IOHK Technical Service Desk.

The 2 Ada you talk about,

those are the KeyDeposit required by the protocol to register you stake key. you can find it in the shelley genesis file under KeyDeposit

You get back the 2 Ada when you undelegate your Ada.

I hope this clarifies things a bit, let me know if you have further questions.
