Your first step towards unstake begins on the InfStones website, you can easily initiate a withdrawal from InfStones to your EigenPod contract directly through InfStones’ platform. To begin, navigate to the Safe Stake section to access your Dashboard. This is your starting point for reviewing the validators with whom you’ve staked your ETH.

STEP 3: Unstake on InfStones

After identifying the validator you wish to unstake from, you'll find the option to “Unstake”. It's important to note that upon withdrawing from the Ethereum network, your staked ETH balance will be credited to your EigenPod address, accessible via the EigenLayer app for viewing. It can take multiple days as a full exit from the validator queue is required.

The final steps of the unstaking process take place on the EigenLayer platform, where you'll manually complete the unstake, referred to as Full Withdrawals in EigenLayer's official documentation. You can open your EigenLayer Dashboard here.

Once the validator withdrawal from Ethereum is completed with InfStones, your staked ETH balance will be shown as EigenPod Balance on the EigenLayer platform.
