Can I Skip the Unbonding Period?


There is currently no way to circumvent the unbonding period, which serves as a cooldown. DOT that is bonded cannot be sent from one DOT address to another. 


In other words, you can only transfer DOT that shows up as "transferrable" in your account. 



In the future, there may be an option to "fast unbond" for those who have never been exposed to a validator. However, this feature is not live yet as of this writing. You can follow the GitHub issue to stay up to date.
