At the moment, only the PC version of the client has the functionality to extract GAS.

When NEO are transferred to an account, their status are unspent, the GAS generated during this period are unavailable for claiming.

- Transfer all the NEO within the wallet using a transfer operation. (It is possible to send the NEO straight to the current address) Once the claim for the GAS is settled, the GAS can be withdrawn. (Refer to the white paper for technical explanation of this process).
