When staking Polygon (MATIC) you are supporting the network with the additional benefit of compounding your MATIC!

Staking is a method of operating and securing the network. It is the process of holding MATIC in order to earn rights to participate in the "validation" of transaction blocks, and in doing so "Validators" are recompensed with rewards. In order to be a "Validator" and participate in these operations, one is required to maintain a server running continuously, technological knowhow, experience, and have a significant amount of MATIC stake.

This is where P2P.org Validator comes in, we allow MATIC token holders to participate in staking without all the heavy lifting i.e maintenance, surety bonds etc. by "delegating" their MATIC to P2P.org. We accumulate users' stake and act as a major validation node, receiving and allocating staking rewards between our users pro rata to the delegation.

Users that chose to stake with P2P.org maintain full custody of their MATIC at all times and P2P.org will never have access to them.

Example:

Let's assume the APR for staking MATIC is 5% with a fee of 1%, and 1000 MATIC are delegated to P2P.


Reward: 1000*5% = 50 MATIC

Fee = 50*1% = 0.5 MATIC
Estimated balance after one year = 1000+50-0.5 = 1049.5 MATIC

By simply delegating my 1000 MATIC as I hold it, I will have supported the network and earned an additional 49.5 MATIC after one year.

To find out today's APR and a fees for MATIC, visit P2P Staking Rewards and fees.

Please keep in mind that the APR and Fees specified are approximate and changes along with network conditions.
