How MATIC Staking Rewards Work

Here is a breakdown of how staking your MATIC holdings works:

· Polygon uses a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) cryptocurrency consensus mechanism that verifies transactions and builds new blocks through randomly selected validators.

· MATIC is the native cryptocurrency on the Polygon network.

· Validators are chosen based on how many MATIC coins they have locked up in the blockchain network.

· MATIC holders can stake their tokens to a minimum of one validator to the Polygon network.

· Anyone who owns even a single MATIC token can stake their coins to one or multiple validators.

· MATIC holders can stake on the Polygon network.

· After the tokens are picked to validate a block, stakers will earn a MATIC staking reward.

What is MATIC?

MATIC is the native cryptocurrency of the Polygon network that is utilized to facilitate development across Ethereum-compatible blockchain networks. It can be used for transactions and staking.

How Much MATIC do I Need to Stake?

There is a minimum amount required of 0.1 MATIC to start staking on Polygon. You can stake a single token or thousands of tokens.

The objective is simple enough: The more you stake, the more you earn.

How do I Buy MATIC in Canada?

The only way to acquire tokens is to purchase MATIC on a cryptocurrency exchange like Bitbuy. So, all you will need to do is launch a Bitbuy account, and then you can buy as much or as little MATIC as you want.

Where is the Best Place to Stake MATIC?

Since the first cryptocurrency was mined more than a decade ago, the crypto industry has flourished, from the number of businesses that accept digital currency to the creation of some of the best crypto exchanges worldwide. One of the best online crypto trading platforms is Bitbuy. This is a Canadian-owned and operated cryptocurrency platform for all types of investors, be it novice traders who want an easy-to-use user experience or advanced traders who are searching for the best tools to buy and sell crypto. Whether you are searching for top-notch security or low fees, Bitbuy offers you exposure to a treasure trove of coins, including MATIC.

Do the 4.88% Staking Rewards Fluctuate?

Like other staking coins in the crypto ecosystem, MATIC rewards will be higher to start and will fall as the locked supply percentage increases. In addition, Polygon will allocate 12% of its total inventory of ten billion tokens to fund staking rewards.

Is Polygon Proof of Stake or Proof of Work?

MATIC uses a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism to operate the Polygon network. Polygon has been widely celebrated for replacing the costly and energy-intensive Proof-of-Work (PoW) consensus mechanism.

How Often Are Staking Rewards Paid by Bitbuy?

Bitbuy will begin depositing your MATIC staking rewards into your crypto account every 12 hours.

How Much Can I Earn Staking MATIC?

You can earn up to 4.88% on the amount you staked. Your staking rewards can grow faster by automatically re-staking the rewards, allowing you to compound your returns.

Can You Lose MATIC by Staking?

Although staking is a safe and secure investment decision, the trading strategy does pose some risks, much like any other investing endeavour. Please refer to Bitbuy’s MATIC Staking Risk Acknowledgement.

The most significant concern with staking is typically slashing. This means missed rewards from validator errors or infrastructure downtime. Bitbuy prevents slashing from happening by partnering with some of the top infrastructure providers in the digital economy today. One of these is Figment, a firm that has manufactured Bitbuy's systems and processes that can immensely diminish the odds of a slashing event.

Moreover, it should be noted that crypto staking is far safer than crypto lending. Staking rewards originate from the blockchain protocol, while lending generally consists of credit risks. Your staking rewards stem from issuing new tokens instead of depending on a borrower to repay a loan.

How Long Can You Stake MATIC?

You can stake MATIC for as long as you want; there is no maximum.
