For the crypto-savvy:

Axion is a standard ERC-20 token on the Polygon blockchain. It is not yet on any major exchanges, so must be purchased either in our accelerator or from the market using SushiSwap. It can be stored in any ethereum wallet, but Metamask is required to interact with our staking platform. The token contract address is: 0x839f1a22a59eaaf26c85958712ab32f80fea23d9

For beginners:

Axion is a token on the Polygon blockchain, and you will need a wallet in order to purchase and store it.

Setting up a wallet

In order to purchase Axion, you will need a MetaMask wallet in order to store it. Please read our tutorial here on setting up your first wallet, and how to keep it safe.

Purchasing MATIC

In order to purchase Axion, you first need to have some MATIC in your wallet. You can top up your wallet by using the Axion Faucet which will allow you to perform several transactions on the Polygon chain for free. If you need more MATIC, you can purchase MATIC from a centralized exchange like Binance or Crypto.com (CEX), or from a Decentralized exchange (DEX) like Uniswap or Sushiswap by trading another token from it. You will need to send this Matic to the Polygon network using any supported chain bridges, or the official Polygon bridge widget available on the Axion Staking Portal.

Purchasing Axion

Now you have a wallet and some MATIC, you are ready to buy Axion (AXN).

You can do this in a number of ways, by taking part in the accelerator or purchasing directly from the market using SushiSwap.

What's next?

Now you've managed to purchase some Axion, what can you do with it?

Well, you could keep it 'liquid' by leaving it in your wallet, but we strongly suggest 'staking' it, as this is how you can make the most profit from Axion.

By staking, you lock up your AXN for a selected period of time, up to a maximum of 15.2 years. Over that time, you will earn 8% annual interest, plus daily wBTC dividends from the accelerator which you can withdraw at any time. At the end of your stake period, you can withdraw the principal and interest in one lump sum.

Take a look at the Accelerator calculator to estimate what your divs could look like based on principal and duration!
