-All of my EOS is staked for CPU and NET bandwidth, should I un-stake some of it first, and how ?

-What command should I execute with a BP to buy, lets say, 600 EOS worth of RAM on an existing account ?

-Am I going to be able to sell the RAM back for EOS once it is used with the airdrop transaction ?

1 Answer 1


I was doing a lot of bidding for eos.names (premium names) and found out quickly that the default 7KB or so RAM that I had was gone!

I used the https://toolkit.genereos.io/tools tools with Scatter to buy RAM using unstaked EOS. And I was able to resume transactions right away.

So what I recommend is as follows:

Of course, if you are out of EOS, then you should unstake first. It will take 3 days to get them back.

  • Thank you, does the RAM burn out forever, or is it re-usable (lets say, for a Dapp) ? Commented Jun 19, 2018 at 11:09
  • @DisplayName You can send a transaction to the contract that removes the used RAM if provided by the contract. There is an unanswered question: eosio.stackexchange.com/questions/921/… Follow-up there.
