Once you have the native AXL token on the Axelar blockchain, you can also "provide liquidity,” or "LP," i.e., lend out this token to other people who want to borrow it, and earn a certain interest rate.
This tutorial shows how to LP AXL token using the Keplr wallet. The process will be similar for other wallets that support Axelar network, including Cosmostation. Remember that if you are using a Ledger device in conjunction with your Keplr wallet, you will need to make sure the Ledger device is connected and the appropriate app (Cosmos or Axelar) is open, in order to complete your LP-ing transaction. Click here to learn how to set up AXL on Ledger.
❗ LP-ing involves risks greater than holding or staking. For more information on the risks involved, refer to this guide.❗

9. Bonding LP Tokens.

Click [max] to input all the available LP tokens and hit [Next].
Select [Superfluid Validator] from the list.
Finally, hit [Bond & Stake].

Depending on the Unbonding Period you selected, you may have to wait up to 14 days to receive the assets — both your initial investment and rewards earned.
Once the 14 days are over, you will have to manually remove the assets into your Keplr wallet by clicking [Add/Remove Liquidity].
