Earn rewards while securing the Polygon PoS network
Anyone can use MATIC tokens to help safeguard the network and earn rewards.
Why stake on Polygon?
12% of the total supply of 10 billion MATIC is allocated to fund staking rewards. As a validator, you set your own commission for accepting delegations to your node. There are also annual incentives available!
You do not need to use energy-intensive computers to stake, which lessens the environmental impact. Each node consumes only 546.07 kWh per year.
Build the future
Polygon PoS is one of the most used protocols in the world and continues to grow. By staking, you can help to build the technology of Web3.
How to stake?
Polygon PoS chain is run on the Proof of Stake mechanism. Anyone can seek to become a validator on the mainnet.
