Stake Axelar (AXL)
Part of the Cosmos ecosystem, Axelar is a Proof-of-Stake blockchain that acts as an application layer, enabling dApp users to interact with any asset or application, on any chain, in one click. Also dubbed “Stripe for web3,” the Axelar network facilitates the permissionless transfer of value across chains, thus supporting interoperability.
The Axelar network is composed of a decentralized system of validators, smart contracts, and a suite of developer tools that allow dApp builders to wrap assets for cross-chain transfer, communicate seamlessly with other blockchains, and unlock composability.
Finoa’s Axelar validator is run by Finoa Consensus Services, the Finoa subsidiary that builds blockchain infrastructure. By staking to an FCS node, you agree to the Finoa Consensus Services Terms and Conditions .

Axelar staking FAQ
The Axelar token enables the functioning of the Axelar network in three ways:
- It supports fee payments for using the network.
- It provides incentives to validators and stakers to keep the network secure through Proof-of-Stake consensus.
- It facilitates governance through token-based voting.
Rewards on the Axelar network are inflationary, increasing the total supply of the token. The inflation rate is currently 15%. You can check any changes on the block explorer.
The token supply may become deflationary if the fees collected for cross-chain transitions are higher than the total sum of the network processing cost, token buy-backs, and the number of tokens burned.
To ensure that validators are behaving according to the rules of the protocol, most Proof-of-Stake networks enforce punishments via slashing. Axelar tokens can get slashed (i.e., by burning or seizing) if:
- The validator has downtime, in which case the penalty is 0.01% per block.
- The validator is double-signing transactions, prompting a 2% slashing penalty per block.
You maintain full custody of your tokens when delegating your Axelar tokens to the Finoa Consensus Services validator.
