Then after the ATOM has arrived in your Osmosis account you can trade ATOM to UMEE on this page on the Osmosis Dex finally, head back over to this page on the Osmosis Dex and click the withdraw button for (Umee - UMEE) to do an IBC(Inter-Blockchain Communication) transfer from the Osmosis network to the Umee Network.
Delegating is when you bond your tokens to a validator and earn rewards from that validator. Delegating is non-custodial, which means that a validator cannot steal your coins just because you delegated to them.
