Undelegating in 3 easy steps.

These are the three steps to undelegate your GRT. We’ll have a detailed look at each step in the following.


Connecting MetaMask

Connecting MetaMask to the network dApp of The Graph


Undelegating GRT

Choosing the amount of GRT you wish to undelegate


Confirming transactions

When you confirm the transaction, you stop delegating

Step 1 – Connecting MetaMask.

Connect your wallet to The Graph Network dApp and click on the Connect Wallet button.

Once are connected, click on your profile image in the upper right corner to access your profile.


Step 2 – Undelegating GRT.

You’re now on your profile page which gives you an overview of the stake your delegating right now. By clicking on Delegating, you’ll see a list of the Indexers you are delegating to.

Select the Indexer you want to undelegate from and click Undelegate.


Keep in mind that your tokens are subject to a 28 day thawing period once you undelegate. During this lockup period, you’re not able to earn rewards with your tokens and cannot move your GRT.

Step 3 – Confirming transactions.

All that is left to do now is to insert the amount of GRT you wish to undelegate. After that you can click on Submit Transaction.


MetaMask will open a new window and ask for your confirmation of the transaction.

It’s recommended to customize the amount of gas so that your transaction won’t be stuck in a network. To do so, click on Edit and on Fast.


After that Confirm the transaction in the next step.

After you have submitted the transaction, MetaMask will automatically perform another contract interaction. Once the first transaction has been processed, another MetaMask window will pop up asking you for another confirmation. Sign the second transaction and you’re done.

After the second transaction has been processed, you will receive a notification from MetaMask. If you see this, you have successfully undelegated.


You’ve learned now how to undelegate your GRT tokens.
