Change Payout Address

It is highly recommended to Change the payout address for your validator node and take custody of your rewards.

The change Payout Address option will be enabled once the node has synced. Node Address and Payout address will be available once the node has started syncing, and initially, both will be the same.

You must know these points before changing the payout address:

  • The amount will accumulate in the new payout address you provided.

  • Changing the payout address will consist of 2 transactions; the first transaction will change the payout address, and the second one will transfer the remaining balance to the new payout address.

  • The transaction to change the payout address will charge approximately 0.0002409 VT/EWT as the transaction fee.

  • The transaction to send the remaining balance to the new payout address will charge approximately 0.00021 VT/EWT as the transaction fee.

  • The entire process will take a few minutes to complete. You need to have more than 0.0015 VT/EWT in your wallet to perform this action.

  • The updated balance will take a few minutes to reflect on the panel.
