Important:

You can’t manually restake rewards if your pending rewards are less than 50 ATOM.

Unbonding period: 21 days

Keep in mind:

Coinbase Prime doesn't support the ability to directly withdraw pending ATOM rewards. You must unstake the entire staked balance to withdraw rewards. If the rewards were restaked, then they'll be subject to the unbonding period. In both cases, the principal amount will be unstaked, subject to the unbonding period, and won't earn rewards.
