Avaunt Staking Services is a company that specializes in cryptocurrency staking services, facilitating the operation of validator nodes on a variety of blockchain projects. As a validator operator, Avaunt Staking Services enables token holders, also known as delegators, to delegate their tokens to the company's nodes. In return, these delegators receive a portion of the network rewards. As of 2023, Avaunt Staking Services manages validator nodes on several networks including Avalanche, Radix, and the SSV Network.
Avaunt Staking Services was established to cater to the shift from Proof-of-Work (PoW) to Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus mechanisms in the blockchain industry. PoS, unlike PoW, relies on a network of validator nodes and staked collateral to secure the network, rather than computational energy. Avaunt Staking Services provides a platform where individuals and entities can delegate their staking tokens to a validator, earning a percentage of the validator's revenue in return.
In addition to their primary staking service, Avaunt also offers IT and AV consultancy, with over 20 years of experience in IT infrastructure project delivery, and web design & development services, encompassing branding, design & build, hosting & domain registration, social media, SEO, and marketing.
As of 2023, Avaunt Staking Services is accepting delegations on the Avalanche Network and Radix. They have over $5 million staked across more than 400 delegators and are active on three networks, with plans for expansion.
Avaunt Staking is community-focused, with a mission to help each and every project grow and provide transparency to the delegator community.

As of 2023, Avaunt Staking Services supports the following networks:
Avalanche is an open-source platform that facilitates the launch of highly decentralized applications, new financial primitives, and interoperable blockchains.
Radix is a decentralized network designed to provide developers with a platform where they can build rapidly without the threat of exploits and hacks, and without scaling being a bottleneck.
SSV.network is a decentralized staking infrastructure that enables the distributed operation of an Ethereum validator, providing simple and scalable access to decentralized ETH staking.
For token holders interested in becoming delegators with Avaunt Staking Services, the process generally follows these steps:
- Token holders delegate their staking tokens to a validator node managed by Avaunt Staking Services.
- Once the tokens are delegated, they are added to the validator's staking pool.
- Rewards, which are paid in the native network token, are distributed to the delegator's wallet at the end of each epoch (a fixed period of time unique to each network).
Delegators share both the revenue and risks with their validators. If a validator behaves maliciously or underperforms, delegators may face a penalty known as slashing, in which a proportion of their delegated stake is deducted.
