The Binance Staking platform, since its inception, has continued to grow exponentially, making huge waves in the entire cryptocurrency space.
This article covers in-depth details about Binance Staking and why it is the number one way to stake Polygon $MATIC tokens
Before we move on:
What Is Polygon (Formerly Matic)?
Polygon is a popular Layer 2, blockchain-agnostic scaling protocol. Built specifically for Ethereum, the protocol helps in connecting Ethereum Chain to other ETH-compatible blockchains. Its native token, $MATIC, is an ERC-20 token that helps to power the entire Polygon ecosystem.
Polygon Staking – What to Note
Staking Polygon $MATIC tokens is one of the easiest ways to earn passive income. Interested persons only need to delegate their tokens to a validator. And then regularly claim their staking rewards. Interestingly, rewards can also be staked to earn compound interest.
Staking rewards are, to a large extent, dependent on network conditions at a particular time. Currently, Polygon allocates 12% of its total token supply as staking rewards. The protocol also currently has a total supply of 10 billion $MATIC tokens. This means that 1.2 billion tokens will be allocated as staking rewards for the initial five years. The rewards will also be slightly reduced every half hour (30 minutes).
Interestingly, there are no current requirements to stake $MATIC. Interested persons can stake as low as one (1) $MATIC token. However, validators have the right to decide the minimum acceptable limit for staking. Also, validators may charge fees or commissions for their services.
Staked $MATIC tokens have an unlocking period of nine (9) days. To exit, stakers only need to send an “unbound request.”
