Avalanche FAQ

Staking AVAX currently has no slashing penalties for misbehavior. Future Avalanche subnets will be able to set their own slashing penalties.

A minimum of 25 AVAX is required to start delegating to an AVAX validator.
To spin up your own validator, you must stake a minimum of 2,000 AVAX. Contact us to spin up your own dedicated AVAX validator.

Bloq infrastructure is non-custodial and allows you to stake your AVAX while retaining control. At no point does Bloq hold your private keys nor will Bloq have access to withdraw the staked AVAX.

There are no bonding or unbonding periods for staking your AVAX, however when delegating AVAX, your tokens will remain locked for the selected staking period – between 2 weeks and 1 year, at your discretion.

 The Avalanche network currently features three built-in blockchains:

All three blockchains are validated and secured by all Avalanche validators, referred to as the Primary Network. Currently, staking is only available on the Primary Network. Learn more about Avalanche subnets and the Primary Network.

To stake AVAX through the Bloq API, visit the official Bloq documentation to get started.
