The AKT Token
Akash Token is a utility token powering the world’s first decentralized cloud for Defi and high-growth organizations.
Akash Network is a sovereign proof-of-stake chain built on Cosmos Hub, that leverages Akash Token (AKT), a native utility token, as the primary means to govern, secure the blockchain, and provide a default mechanism to store and exchange value. AKT will act as the reserve currency in Akash’s multi-currency and multi-chain ecosystem, while ensuring the economic security of the platform’s public blockchain by means of Staking.
AKT holders stake AKT to secure the Akash PoS network and in exchange earn rewards. Early adopters naturally gain higher rewards. Rewards comprise inflationary rewards and will include a share of the total network spend (Take Income) users pay.
At its Genesis, the initial inflation set to 54% Annualized APR per month gradually decreases each month and halves every 3.75 years. This model maximizes rewards for early delegators as an incentive to secure the Akash blockchain in its nascency. Currently, the annualized APR is averaging ~14%.
For delegators, on the ValidatorNode Akash Validator, we have a low 5% commission rate. Our commission charge covers the cost of operating and maintaining our validator node thus ensuring maximum uptime and security for our staking customers.

For those that don't want to use a Keplr wallet or do not have a LedgerUSB wallet. You can still delegate tokens to ValidatorNode, and start earning income from your delegations, just delegate your AKT to our ValidatorNode Akash validator address below (click address to copy to clipboard);
AKT delegated to our Akash Validator Node will begin earning income immediately. Payouts are automatic and can be monitored via any of the above explorers.
Network Specific FAQ's (AKASH)
The following are some of the Frequently asked questions about staking AKASH ($AKT) with ValidatorNode.
Ideally, considering you’re Staking on the Akash Network, we recommend starting with as much AKT as you can afford. AKASH is currently paying out in excess of 25% and earning larger returns with regular re-investing. But, you can start with any number of tokens, to begin with.
At ValidatorNode, we do not deliberately put a minimum/maximum filter as a prerequisite to get you onboard. You can start generating a proportionate passive income staking as little or as much as you want. The amount that you delegate is completely up to you!
You can use this handy “AKASH Staking Calculator” to assist you in determining the amount to stake and the prospective returns you can expect to make.
