Helium Staking

Want to stake your $HNT with the highest performing VaaS provider?

Join us for the Helium Validator’s final stand, before the migration to the Solana blockchain. While Nova has stated that the would like to finish the migration by the end of 2022, we all know how that goes! Based on previous upgrades, we expect that the migration will not be completed until sometime between March and June of 2023. So why not maximize HNT earnings until then? As more and more Validators unstake, your earnings will continue to go through the roof!

Our fleet has one of the lowest Performance to Tenure (P/T) ratios, at a staggeringly low average of 0.005, and is continuously decreasing, as the size of the fleet increases. As of August 2022, many of our validators now have a 0 P/T ratio and are earning 100 or more HNT per month, making the earnings spill over the background! Want to see raw performance at it’s peak? Our block validation times are measured in milliseconds, with an average block validation time of under 800ms!

When you stake your $HNT to a Validator that we manage for you, we guarantee you’ll have the highest performing Helium Validator hardware available.

Are you earning over 100 $HNT per month?

Validator as a Service (VaaS)

Want to have access to the best hardware available, and not have to worry about monitoring, performance, upgrades, Linux expertise and cloud costs? It's easy, we provide the infrastructure and expertise to manage your Validators. 

Fully managed Validators

  • 25% of $HNT monthly rewards
  • $0 USD monthly fee 
  • $0 server fees
  • 24/7 Monitoring from our NOC
  • Non-custodial, keep your $HNT in your wallet
  • Dedicated channel on our Discord server for communications with our Ops team
  • We invoice you on or about the first of the month
*10,000 HNT Staking Requirement per Validator
We currently hold the record for running the highest earning validator in a 30 day period, since the last halvening, and we expect to break our own record, repeatedly, in the coming months.

Why not have your Validator be the new record holder ?

N+1 Redundancy, Monitoring, Uptime?

Do you want an uptime commitment for your investment? When it comes to keeping our clients in business, that’s our bread and butter. Being in the Disaster Recovery industry for over 30 years lead us to build an N+1 Validator infrastructure, because it’s in our blood. This ensures that in the event of a hardware failure, we can quickly migrate your Validator(s) to other hardware, or even to one of our other data centers.

Need more info? What exactly is a Helium Validator, anyhow?

Validators are nodes on the Helium Blockchain that perform Consensus Group work, which includes tasks such as verifying all network transactions, adding new blocks to the blockchain, and creating challenges for Helium Hotspots. The majority of Validators run on Linux, which requires a very specific level of expertise to successfully operate. Unless you’re running a Validator as a hobby, the only way to earn a respectable ROI is to partner with a VaaS. 

What is Staking?

Crypto staking is the process of locking up your crypto holdings, in exchange for rewards. When you Stake your HNT to a Validator, you become an Investor in the Helium blockchain. All rewards you earn are immediately liquid and can be transferred or sold at will. There is no minimum or maximum term for how long you stake for, however, the 10,000 HNT stake itself does not become liquid until ~86 days (125,000 blocks on the chain) after you un-stake your validator.

Validator earnings are impacted directly by several factors, such as hardware performance, Internet connectivity, and most importantly, its uptime and ability to keep up to the tip of the chain. This is not a plug and play solution. It requires constant care and feeding, to ensure that your Validator is always online and earning rewards. This is what we do best.
