Manual withdraw with CLI

1. Environment Setup

We've prepared a CLI in Solido to simplify your workflow. You'll need to:

  1. Install Rust: Follow the instructions at Rust Installation.
curl --proto '=https' --tlsv1.2 -sSf | sh source "$HOME/.cargo/env"rustup override set 1.60.0
  1. Install Solana CLI v1.13.7: Visit Solana CLI Installation.
sh -c "$(curl -sSfL"
  1. Install Solido CLI v2.0.0 from the official GitHub repository: See Solido Releases.
git clone --recurse-submodules -b V2.1 solido_v2
cd solido_v2
cargo build --release

2. Transfer stSOL to Local Account

⚠️ Note: Our CLI can only work with local keys. Consider using a new account for withdrawals to keep your main wallet secure. The withdrawal operation will utilize the following:

  • SOL_ACCOUNT_PUBKEY: Public key of the local Solana account.
  • STSOL_ACCOUNT_PUBKEY: Public key of the child stSOL account from SOL_ACCOUNT_PUBKEY.
  • KEYPAIR_FILE: Local file containing the keypair from SOL_ACCOUNT_PUBKEY.
  • STAKE_ACCOUNT_PUBKEY: Public key of the child stake account from SOL_ACCOUNT_PUBKEY.
  1. Create a new local account:
solana-keygen new --outfile ./local-keypair.json

Remember the KEYPAIR_FILE path and SOL_ACCOUNT_PUBKEY from the output.

  1. Verify the new account with SOL_ACCOUNT_PUBKEY:
solana balance SOL_ACCOUNT_PUBKEY
  1. Transfer stSOL to the local account using SOL_ACCOUNT_PUBKEY and note the transaction signature.


⚠️ After transferring stSOL, a child account for stSOL is created under your local account. To proceed, locate this address by searching your transaction signature on Solscan and saving the Destination pubkey found under Instruction Details →#3 - Token Transfer.


3. Withdraw stSOL

  1. Execute the withdrawal to your stake account:
./target/release/solido --config ./solido_config.json --keypair-path KEYPAIR_FILE withdraw --amount-st-sol STSOL_AMOUNT

Record the STAKE_ACCOUNT_PUBKEY for further steps.

  1. Deactivate the stake account:
solana deactivate-stake STAKE_ACCOUNT_PUBKEY --keypair KEYPAIR_FILE

⚠️ Wait for the epoch to end (~1-2 days) for the stake account to become inactive. Check the epoch status on Solana Explorer.

4. Transfer SOL to Main Account

After the epoch ends, withdraw SOL from STAKE_ACCOUNT_PUBKEY to your main account, referred to as MAIN_ACCOUNT_PUBKEY.
