Staking MATIC with P2P

  • Polygon staking is happening on Ethereum as Polygon is secured by Ethereum (Polygon PoS is becoming L2 on Ethereum)

  • To start investing in Polygon now, you should have some MATIC tokens as ERC-20 tokens on your Ethereum wallet.

  • The most popular wallet solutions for Ethereum are Metamask, Coinbase Wallet, and Safe (former Gnosis Safe). You can also connect any other wallet using WalletConnect.

  • MATIC can be acquired either on Centralised Exchanges (like Coinbase, Binance, Kraken, and others) or decentralized exchanges or aggregators (1Inch, Uniswap, Curve, or others)

  • If you have bought your tokens on Centralised Exchange, first you need to transfer them to your wallet.

  • For all actions, you should also pay gas in ETH, so you will be required to have some ETH on the same wallet (approx. 0.01 ETH, but this value is volatile because of gas prices on Ethereum)

  • When you have acquired some MATIC & ETH, you can go to the official Polygon staking page at

  • Connect your wallet

  • Click Become a Delegator

  • A pop-up will appear

  • You will have to make two transactions:

  1. Approve the spend amount of the MATIC token. This will allow the staking contract to interact with the specified amount of MATIC.

  2. After approval, the 2nd transaction will be suggested - the delegation of the stake itself.

  • Success! You are now a part of the fast-developing Polygon Ecosystem, and you help to secure the future L2 chain!
