Yes — there is a user guide.
No, you can stake at your discretion, unlimited.
You receive the unstaked AVAX after the unbonding period, which is at end of the current validating period. A validating period is 4 weeks.
aAVAXb is a rebasing token. When holding aAVAXb, your balance will increase in proportion to your AVAX staking rewards. A rebase runs daily, and rewards occur each time this runs. So each day, you will see the quantity of your aAVAXb increase by a small amount.
aAVAXc is a reward-bearing token, meaning its quantity stays the same from the moment of staking. Instead, it appreciates in value, as the redemption ratio grows because of reward accumulation.
aAVAXb will increase in number with every rebase; rebasing occurs daily. aAVAXc rewards are built into the token. Effectively, your rewards accumulate daily as aAVAXc grows in value to AVAX.
2% commission on the reward.
Staking rewards depend mostly on the voting power of the validator node that your stake is delegated to. Ankr aims to spread delegations to only the most trustworthy and reliable nodes to increase staking rewards.
Your stake continues to accumulate rewards until the moment you receive them.
The only risk for stakers is missing out on rewards during any time a validator they staked with is slashed. Slashing is a protocol-level penalty associated with a validator failure if it validates an invalid transaction, attacks the network, or goes offline. The delegated staked AVAX is not slashed — slashing impacts only the self-stake of the validator. Ankr only delegates to trusted and reputable validator nodes to avoid any validator that would act maliciously.
