How to avoid losing accrued UBIs?

Why could I lose my accumulated UBIs?

When you register in PoH and start dripping UBIs, they do not go directly to the wallet. The balance of UBIs remains in a contract variable called AccruedValue. The entire balance in that variable allows for a mechanism that protects UBI from leaking to people who are no longer registered.

How does the seize mechanism work?

When a profile expires, ubis dripping does not stop automatically, but requires someone to manually cut that drip. That drip is implemented in the form of "Seize UBI " where anyone can keep the UBIs of an expired profile, in exchange for the gas required to send the command to stop the drip.

How do you consolidate the accumulated value so as not to lose it?

Performing an operation with the UBI, which can be:

  • Send any amount of UBI to another person.
  • Sending any amount of UBI to the same address you are receiving (you put as recipient your own address).
  • Sending any amount of UBI to the burning address: 0x000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000dEaD
