I'm trying EOSIO boot-up sequence using EOSIO wiki page.

I succeeded setting contracts, creating accounts and producers, and producing blocks from some other nodeoses.

But I can't find any method that Unstaking SYS from accounts...

Is there any actions or methods to do that?

1 Answer 1


Below is the documentation for undelegating bandwidth. I'd assume the command would look like below:

cleos system undelegatebw FROM RECEIVER unstake_net_quantity unstake_cpu_quantity

system undelegatebw Undelegate bandwidth

Positional Arguments

from TEXT - The account undelegating bandwidth
receiver TEXT - The account to undelegate bandwidth from
unstake_net_quantity TEXT - The amount of EOS to undelegate for network bandwidth
unstake_cpu_quantity TEXT - The amount of EOS to undelegate for CPU bandwidth


  • Thank you for your answer! So, after 3 days, which method or command can I use?

  • I updated my post with the cleos command. That is what you would do in cleos to begin the 3 day process. After you can transfer the token. You should be able to piece together what is needed by trying that in the command line and putting -h after to help with the optional positionals. There are also a host of options offered after the pos args.
