It can be stored in any ethereum wallet, but Metamask is required to interact with our staking platform. The token address is: 0x71f85b2e46976bd21302b64329868fd15eb0d127
Axion is a token on the Ethereum 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.
In order to purchase Axion, you first need to have some Ethereum (ETH) in your wallet. You can purchase this in a few different ways, please see our guide here.
Now you have a wallet and some ETH, you are ready to buy Axion (AXN).
You can do this in a number of ways, by taking part in our Auctions or purchasing directly from the market using Uniswap. Take a look at our Auction guide here or our How to buy from Uniswap guide here.
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 axion dividends from our auctions. At the end of your stake period, you can withdraw the principal+interest+dividends in one lump sum.
You will also now earn liquid wBTC dividends from our Venture Capital Auctions, and by liquid we mean, you can withdraw it at any point.
Take a look at the unofficial AxionCalc to calculate what your divs could look like based on principal and duration!
