Sending a transaction from stake pool to wallet

Hello everyone,

I’m trying to retire my stake pool and want to send my pledge back to my wallet before I do so.

With the help of this CoinCashew guide (Guide: How to build a Cardano Stake Pool - CoinCashew)

But I’m getting an error that stops me from sending the ADA back.

I thought it might be because there are 2 UTXO’s which have 2 different amounts of ADA but I don’t know.

Thanks in advance guys.

Hi Offfn,

As stated in the error (Value not conserved), there is a difference of the amount of input and output. You should dubble check your input UTXO amount, fee’s and output such that the match.

Good luck!

kind regards,


is it possible that the node isn’t fully synced yet?
The invalid-hereafter value must be greater than the current tip. in your case, it’s lower than the current tip

try again the:

currentSlot=$(cardano-cli query tip --mainnet | jq -r '.slot')
echo Current Slot: $currentSlot

and be sure when building the raw transaction, that the invalid-hereafter value is larger than the current slot tip (usually current slot +1000 should do the trick)


I tried a very small amount of ADA as well but did not seem to work.

Kind regards,



The node is fully synced.

But in the guide they also do the +1000 no?
