    Delegate your MATIC

    We recommend using a staking pool when staking MATIC. It’s simpler and faster to get up-and-running. A staking pool is a group of validators who combine their MATIC, which gives them a higher chance of validating transactions and earning rewards. You can do this through your wallet’s interface.

    Start validating

    You’ll need to wait for your deposit to be confirmed by your wallet. Once it’s confirmed, you’ll automatically validate transactions on the Polygon network. You’ll be rewarded with MATIC for these validations.

What to be aware of

There are transaction and staking pool fees you need to consider. There can also be a waiting period before you start earning rewards. The staking pool will need to generate blocks, and this can take some time.
