BitGo Cold Storage Staking enables Avalanche to offer customers the first and only Avalanche staking service in qualified storage.

About Cold Storage Staking

In addition to assets previously created through the Avalanche chain, BitGo supports the Avax C-chain, providing Cold Storage Staking for Avax. In addition, BitGo provides a secure Avax staking service to institutional and enterprise partners. 

Avalanche‘s Three Primary Chains are: 

  • C-chain (contract chain) — An Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatible chain used to deploy decentralized applications, such as DeFi, NFT applications, and native assets or tokens. It also enables users to send and receive native AVAX to and from exchanges and wallets.
  • P-chain (platform chain) — Manages staking and validation of the Avalanche network, while also coordinating validators participating in Subnets and cross-subnet communications.
  • X-chain (exchange chain) – A fast, low-fee DAG network where users and developers May issue new assets and make peer-to-peer or point-of-sale payments.

BitGo will provide the Avax Staking service to its users in an easy process, and users who want to take advantage of this service can quickly and securely stake Avax in their BitGo wallet.

John Nahas, VP of Business Development at Ava Labs said: “Institutions and investors are looking for a secure, regulated custodian through which to hold their crypto assets.y enabling AVAX staking, BitGo is answering the call for a secure and institutional-grade solution to this segment.”

Nuri Chang, VP of Product at BitGo said: “Prior to this, investors had to risk sacrificing security, ease of use, or accessibility in order to access the full scope of the Avalanche ecosystem. Now, investors can hold their assets in regulated custody, stake from cold storage, and — through their MetaMask Institutional integration — participate in over 400 projects built on the Avalanche chain.”

How Avalanche Staking Works

The Avalanche stake is on the P-chain. Staking starts with checking which chain the person’s money is on. Money is transferred from C or X chain to P-chain. BitGo wallet supports import and export in P-chain and C-chain, but not in X-chain.

Staking Preferences

Before making a stake, users should first determine how much amount and for how long they want to stake. The longer the staking period here, the higher the reward rate calculated by the protocol. 

The minimum staking period is set as 2 weeks, while the maximum period is 1 year. The minimum amount of Avax determined to be a verifier is 2000. In the future, they will support delegated staking, which will only allow 25 Avax to participate in staking.

After the selected period, the users’ funds are staked automatically and returned to the user wallet along with the staking rewards.
