Unbonding

Unbonding is the reverse operation to delegation. When delegating you send coins to the validator’s stake, when unbonding you call back the money from the validator back to your wallet.

Another property of this transaction is that the coins are called back from the validator immediately (on block creation, ~5 seconds), but they only arrive at your balance in 518 400 blocks (~28 days). In these 28 days, you will not receive any rewards from the stake you unbond. Keep this in mind when making the decision.
