Is staking Avalanche (AVAX) worth it?

Those who staking AVAX on Ankr Staking can earn substantial rewards on their avalanche assets. You can visit the staking calculator on this page to weigh your options and see your potential earnings. On top of liquid staking rewards, you can also contribute ankrAVAX liquid staking tokens to DeFi protocols to earn an extra layer of rewards.

What is Avalanche(AVAX) staking?

Avalanche (AVAX) staking is a way for users to earn rewards for helping to secure and validate transactions on the Avalanche network by contributing their AVAX to validator nodes via Ankr Staking. Avalanche is a Layer 1 blockchain designed to provide fast, secure, and scalable solutions for decentralized applications (dApps) and enterprise use cases.

How does Avalanche(AVAX) staking work?

Ankr Staking offers AVAX token holders the opportunity to stake and, in return, claim the Avalanche Liquid Staking token — ankrAVAX. The ankrAVAX token is a reward-bearing token, meaning that the fair value of 1 ankrAVAX token vs. AVAX increases over time as staking rewards accumulate inside the token. The ankrAVAX also offers instant liquidity for your staked AVAX, enabling you to connect ankrAVAX with DeFi platforms and earn several more layers of rewards. Learn more by visiting the docs.

Where can I stake Avalanche (AVAX)?

You can liquid stake AVAX with Ankr Staking for additional benefits over normal staking, such as instant liquidity and the option to participate in additional DEX and DeFi earning strategies.

How much can you earn staking Avalanche (AVAX)?

You can use the earnings calculator on this page to determine the possible rewards you could earn with your AVAX. This will give you a monthly and yearly estimation of your rewards.

How do I claim my Avalanche (AVAX) staking rewards?

The ankrAVAX token is a reward-bearing token, meaning its quantity stays the same from the moment of staking. Instead, it appreciates in value in relation to AVAX, so the redemption price of 1 ankrAVAX will grow over time because of reward accumulation. This means you will be able to unstake or “redeem” your ankrAVAX for more AVAX than you initially contributed.

What are the risks of staking Avalanche (AVAX)

The only risk for stakers is the chance they will miss 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 will not be 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.

How long will Avalanche (AVAX) staking last?

The length of time you stake your Avalanche for is up to you. You can choose to unstake your AVAX at any time but it may take up to 4 weeks before you can claim your funds. Unstaking AVAX tokens is a multi-step process that involves sending several transactions to the AVAX smart contracts deployed in Avalanche. The AVAX is transferred to your wallet automatically when the unstaking process completes; there is no additional cost for transferring it.

How much do you need to start staking Avalanche (AVAX)?

You will need a minimum of 1 AVAX to begin liquid staking with Ankr.

Can you lose coins Staking Avalanche (AVAX)?

No, you cannot lose the original coins (aka tokens) that you contribute to Ankr’s Avalanche staking. As mentioned in the risks, you may miss out on some rewards in the event of slashing, but you will always be able to redeem the full amount of AVAX tokens that you contributed.

What is the best wallet to stake Avalanche (AVAX)?

You can use wallets supported on Ankr Staking, such as MetaMask. MetaMask will be an easy option, as you can follow our step-by-step instructions.

How to check Avalanche (AVAX) staking rewards?
