Updated: Mar 1, 2023

How to switch if you've already staked with another validator

1. Visit and click on Accounts and then go to Network > Staking.

2. Under the Staking section, click on Accounts.

3. You will see an existing stash account. Click on the three dots at the right side of the stash account and select set nominees from the pop-up menu.

4. Remove the current nominated validator by clicking your current nominated account.

5. Under the candidate accounts search for COLIBRI and select it.

6. Check to ensure that COLIBRI is shown under nominated accounts and click Nominate.

7. Authorize the transaction and click on Sign and Submit.

Voila! You are now a nominator of the COLIBRI validator

8. Recheck under Network > Staking > Accounts menu.


Your bonded AZERO will get nominated in the next era (1 era = 24 hours). You can check the current era on the home page. Kindly have at least 1 $AZERO in the controller account for the transaction fee
