DOT: Common Questions

How do I withdraw the 1 DOT still remaining on my address?

In short, you'll need to have around 1.02 DOT on your address to empty your wallet. The .02 DOT will be used to pay the network fees for the withdrawal transaction.

Since the fees are charged by the Polkadot blockchain, not us. They'll stay the same no matter which wallet you're using for your coins. To transfer your DOT to some other address, please top-up your balance a bit to cover the fees.

The fee cannot be deducted from the remaining 1 DOT. The reason behind this is that bringing your balance below 1 DOT would instantly deactivate your account & get all the remaining funds reaped. That is, if the blockchain charged the network fee from your 1 DOT account, the other 0.98 DOT would get destroyed.
