Validator owner can exit and withdraw its staked balance at anytime.

The unstaking process happens in two steps:

  1. Validator owner needs to request the exit of the validator through a smart contract call. This will emit an on-chain event to notify the operator to perform the validator exit. Once the validator exit is performed by the operator, the validator join the Ethereum protocol exit queue before being fully withdrawn to the Kiln On-Chain Dedicated corresponding CL Recipient address. This process can take from a couple days to weeks depending on the protocol activit.

  2. Once the full balance of the validator has been withdraw to the corresponding CL Recipient address, the validator owner can perform a usual rewards claim contract call to receive its funds. Note that no commission is taken on the staked principal (32 ETH) when withdrawing it.
