This newAPI is designed to assist clients with submitting transactions to the AVN and querying the AVN. Transaction submissions could range from transferring AVT from one account to another, transferring NFTs, or even initiating transactions on your own tokens lifted to the AVN.
The current API is for Aventus’ business clients. Before this version of API release, tech teams from Aventus and our client need to coordinate in order to make the integration possible.
With the current API version the process is streamlined, and client on-boarding is much easier. We will eventually open it up to the community to build with on a test network.
The API is currently in its beta release, so we would appreciate your help in identifying any concerns.
Also, if there are any gaps in the documentation, please do log an issue and we’ll get to it promptly.
Alex has been with Aventus from the early days and, as engineering manager, his job is to help ensure the Aventus tech team delivers.
Alex has a strong background in Software Engineering having got his masters in it and worked in the industry for 4 years before teaching computer science at university and earning a PhD in the subject, specialising in Cryptography and Complexity.
Alex joined Artos in 2018 as Blockchain Engineer coding in Ethereum.
In 2019, he became Research Lead, focussing on the development of Zero-Knowledge solutions. In 2020, he became Engineering Manager for the Systems team, managing the team that developed the AvN. He continues in this role today.

Following on from Alex Pinto’s episode 4 on the technical side of Aventus, this week’s episode focusses on Aventus marketing with Marketing Manager Frankie Chan.
Frankie is an experienced marketer with over 10 years’ experience working with businesses of wide range of sectors and sizes. Before entering the crypto space, he was involved in day-to-day marketing operations of world-renowned themed park, FMCG brands, etc.
His career has been full of projects that use new technologies to solve actual issues, it is this interest in putting innovations into practical use that brings Frankie to Paxful, OKEx and eventually Aventus Network.
Frankie’s role is to help strategise and build out Aventus growth strategies including social media and influencer programs.
In the video Frankie will share his answers to the following questions:
How does your past experience help you in your role?
Where do you see Aventus in the next 5–10 years?
When you’re not working, what do you like to do for fun?

Coming up this week, we are going to share what Aventus is up to on the NFT side of business.
Stay tuned with us on social to learn about the exciting story first!
The $AVT Staking Program RECENTLY received approximately one full node’s worth staked $AVT (250,000 or 10% of the total), bringing the program to around 90% full.
Part 2 of the program closes once full.
To avoid disastrously high Ethereum gas fees for $AVT withdrawals from the staking program, we will group all staking fees and make them available for withdrawal over the Aventus Network in one simple transaction, with one single transaction fee — at a cost of about 1c.
We expect this functionality to go live in Q1 2022, meaning $AVT stakers are unable to withdraw their share of fees until then.
Rest assured that your share of transaction fees are accruing, and when the time comes, you will be able to withdraw at much less than 1% of the current cost.
We are still looking to hire two full time roles:
- Software Engineer
- Software Developer
We are seeking an experienced and highly technical Test Development Engineer who is well versed in QA, software development and test automation, and who is interested in a QA role focused on the “insides” of the enterprise technology stack.
The mission of the QA engineer is to build a comprehensive automated QA infrastructure for Aventus blockchain platform and middleware components integrated with it.
For more information, please click here.
We are also hiring an experienced and versatile Software Developer who will be responsible for designing and implementing enhancements for a rapidly evolving blockchain platform, and the associated enterprise products and infrastructure.
The right candidate will be working in a variety of modern programming languages, solving previously impossible problems in a dynamic environment with peers who enjoy being the driving force of the blockchain revolution.
