What is Axelar?

Axelar is a Proof-of-Stake cross-chain communication platform built on Tendermint, enabling decentralized bridges between Ethereum and EVM blockchains such as BSC, Polygon, Avalanche, Base, Optimism, as well as Cosmos ecosystem networks.

Axelar features built-in APIs and its own SDK (Software Development Kit). For retail blockchain users, Axelar also features Satellite, which provides an interface for cross-chain transfers.

Axelar Network charges a cross-chain base fee measured as a percentage of the amounts transacted. AXL is the native cryptocurrency on Axelar used to pay for transaction fees within the Axelar network.

What is Axelar staking?

Staking is a great way for long-term crypto investors to earn passive income on their Proof-of-Stake cryptocurrency assets (such as AXL) while taking part in securing the network.

Stakers, by delegating tokens to validators, give voting rights to these to validate transactions on the blockchain and propose new blocks. The more stake is attributed to a validator, the more it will be able to take part in the network consensus and earn rewards for its stakers.

A quick example: Suppose a blockchain network offers a 5% reward rate for a staking period of 1 year (5% APR). You decide to lock up and stake 100 tokens on the network. After a year, you can access your staked tokens, and you receive 5 additional tokens as your reward – minus eventual fees charged by the staking provider.

Staking Proof-of-Stake (PoS) cryptocurrencies such as AXL does not require stakers to transfer their token to validators. It is a non-custodial process.

Why is Stakin a great choice for Axelar staking?

Staking your assets on your own is operationally challenging as it requires specialist expertise to set up nodes and ensure constant uptime to maximize rewards or prevent so-called slashing: partial loss of your staked cryptocurrencies due to prolonged downtime, or inappropriate/malicious behavior by the node operator.

Stakin is an excellent choice for staking your Axelar (AXL) tokens, as we have a strong expertise and track record of reliable operations and contributions on this network. Stakin has been a contributor to the Axelar testnet since 2020. Stakin already supports 20+ Cosmos networks and is an active governance participant and voter on all key proposals. As a community contribution, Stakin provides public RPC nodes and IBC Relayers connecting the IBC ecosystem of networks.
