Withdrawing pledge

Hi guys
I’m trying to setup a staking pool and i have some questions about it.
how we can withdraw pledge to external wallet (YOROI Wallet) when we need it?
I’ve searched and there are some solutions that talks about retirement -that the pledge will return when you retire the pool-and some other solutions about withdrawing rewards.
I just wanted to know is there any other guide to withdrawing pledge or not?
In fact, i need to know where it will transfer and how?
The second question is about managing the payment address in staking pool. Does it have any panel or management service that i can access to it if something happen to the pool ( same as IP change or server crash)?
Thanks for guiding me, i appreciate. <3

Your registration fee of 500 ADA will be returned if you retire the pool. The pledge is always yours. You can increase/decrease your pledge by sending ADA to/from your pledge wallet. Do not forget to update your pool settings if you reduce your pledge amount. Pools don’t get any rewards, if the pledge is not met.

dear alex
first of all thanks for your answer, but my problem still unsolved.
the main problem is how can i withdraw pledge from the pool. does the pledge comes back to my personal wallet(the wallet that i have delegated pledge to the pool from it) or the pool gives me a wallet with pass codes then i can withdraw to another wallet??


U should have a pool wallet with ur pledge inside… all unhave to do is to create a transaction and send the funds from pool wallet to yoroi wallet;

U can check on adapools.org the balance for the pool wallet (go to adapools.org - find ur pool and click on rewards)



PS: when u will retire the pool u will receive back the cost of pool registration (500ADA).

and where will it go if I retire the pool?

You will receive 500 ADA back (pool wallet) as a reward

Thank you, and pool wallet is accessible through command line, right ?
Sorry for asking, I am running a pool but didn’t claim ( and didn’t get ) any rewards :slight_smile:

Check the address on cardanoscan.io and u will see the infos about rewards (available/claimed) etc

Hi PoolG

I know this is an old thread, sorry :slight_smile:

When you say that the pledge is always yours, does this mean that if I de-register it will automatically be sent back along with the 500ADA ref fee?

if yes, where does it go?

Thank you

hi, i also want to know where it goes after retiring the pool… how can I get the pledge back

Not the pledge… after u will retire the pool, you will receive back the registration cost (500ADA) as a reward (stake address) to the pool wallet
You will need to withdraw the rewards in order to move/spend them

Registration fee != Pledge.

Pledge is always in your wallet.

Registation fee (500 ADA) is sent back to you when the pool is retired. :slight_smile:

So I tried to withdraw the Stake now all the day but getting every time an error. Is there a special way to withdraw the ada from staking pool after retiring ?
i am getting : transaction submit Error: Error while submitting tx: ShelleyTxValidationError ShelleyBasedEraMary

The node must be synced

Follow the steps from this guide (step 18.x)

You must withdraw the rewards !

Thank you for answering.
I already did, they went to payment.address
Reward Balance shows 0
I need to withdraw the payment.adress
Or is there a way to import the wallet in to yoroi / Deadalus ?

If it is a cli wallet u can’t import but u can send the funds to ur daedalus/yoroi wallet

Step :money_with_wings:
18.9 Send a simple transaction example

I tried about 10 times following this guide and at the end it always leads me to this:
transaction submit Error: Error while submitting tx: ShelleyTxValidationError ShelleyBasedEraMary

I tried with full amount, I tried with -10 ADA to be sure the fee is incl. but every time error :frowning:

Normally I am experienced Crypto Head since 2014 I am in business and something like that doesn’t bother me to ask for help but I am really stuck
