Yes, you can restore your BTC wallet in electrum using your Xverse seed phrase. Just make sure to choose P2SH segwit wallet.
Why is my Stacks transaction pending?
Stacks transactions will be in pending status until they are verified and confirmed by miners. This usually takes 10-30 minutes depending on the time it takes for new blocks to be added to the Stacks blockchain. You may see longer wait times when there is network congestion. You can set a higher transaction fee to incentivise Stacks miners to confirm your transaction first.
What’s the Bitcoin base fee to withdraw from the app?
The btc transaction fees are estimated dynamically, depending on the network conditions. So it's variable and calculated when the transaction is built. The app will show the fee in the confirmation screen before the transaction is sent.

What are seed phrases or secret keys and how do they work?
A seed phrase is a series of words generated randomly which contains the unique key to your cryptocurrency wallet. You should never reveal your seed phrase to anyone as it gives full access to your wallet and crypto.
Please note: We use standardised seed phrases which will work in all wallets.
I think I lost my seed phrase/secret key to Xverse wallet, what can I do?
As Xverse is a non-custodial wallet, if you lost your seed phrase no one will be able to help you recover your wallet. So it is very important to make sure that you back up your seed phrase securely when you create your wallet.

What’s the minimum amount of STX needed by a user to participate in Stacking?
The minimum amount of STX needed to Stack with Xverse pool is 100 STX. This minimum amount is set based on the Bitcoin transaction fees required to distribute the reward to your Bitcoin wallet from the pool.
Can I have more than 1 active Stacking amount per address?
No, you can only have 1 active Stacking amount per address. In order to Stack more STX you will need to use a different address.
How is APY (annual percentage yield) calculated in the wallet for stacking?
The BTC you receive as a stacker comes from STX miners. They will adjust the amount they send based on price of BTC and STX so that they're profitable. The APY we calculate are based on historical returns.
Is it possible to add STX to your stacking mid cycle?
No, it is not possible.
Where can I check the status of the current cycle?
You can check it on the Stacking.club website right here
What happens if I join mid cycle?
Your locked amount and lock time remaining will say "Pending" as you will have to wait for the new cycle to begin.
If I add more STX to my wallet before the next cycle, can I revoke delegation and re delegate to stake the increased amount?
Revoking delegation does not unlock your STX. Once locked, the STX stays locked for the full number of cycles you chose.If you want to increase the amount of STX stacked, you can either wait for the existing stacking cycles to complete or create a new wallet to stack.
Where can I learn more about Stacking and Stacking with Xverse?
Stacks has just released a tutorial video with an introduction to Stacking. It covers how stacking works, what the benefits of stacking are, and how you can use stacking to your advantage. It includes a detailed tutorial on how to participate in Stacking with Xverse. You can watch it right here
Is there any benefit in locking the tokens for longer period (more cycles)?
You will miss a cycle every time your stacking period finishes. This is a protocol level limit. So that would affect your real return if you stack for shorter cycles.
