Last night did biden agree not to declare victory until all votes are certified?

That seems silly if most votes are counted and a reasonable call can be made that night (ie if Biden wins NC, fl and oh it would be more than obvious he won -even if wi mi and pa are not mostly counted yet).

1. Just because he might not declare victory, the world will.

We will know on election night.

Edit: and trump will be screaming about absentee ballots be counted.

3. Chris wallace did say "independently certified" which I guess could mean called by the media?

2. There is no downside.

If its obvious on election night Biden has won, he can let the networks say so and not get into the fray. A few days later he gives his victory speech after counting is done. No need to do it on election night.

4. Although he didn't say it in so many words, I think he meant he wasn't going to jump the gun

unless his victory is clear.

He might have said "certified," or something similar, but it's not like anyone is going to impeach him if he says I won if FL, NC, OH, etc., come in strong for Biden.
