My Unstaked ONT is Still Pending
You can unstake your ONT at any time, however there are a few things to keep in mind.
When you stake ONT with Sesameseed, it gets locked into our custom smart contract for a minimum of 24 hours. If that stake has never been authorized, it will be directly deposited into your wallet at the end of that 24 hour period.
If your stake has been authorized and it’s now participating in a consensus round, that ONT is locked for the duration of that round (and potentially the next one). This is how the Ontology blockchain works.
In this scenario, your unstaked ONT will be directly returned to your wallet at the end of the next consensus round (or two).
Pending unstaked ONT will still continue to earn SEED rewards until they are returned to your wallet.
