Polygon FAQ

Validators may be penalized for double-signing checkpoints and being inactive during chain halts. Penalties can range from 2-5% of their stake to losing their entire stake. Validators who are jailed or have a minimum balance that falls below a certain threshold are immediately unbonded (the period of time during which a staker must wait before being able to move or sell their tokens). The penalty for inactivity increases over time, ensuring the network remains active during adverse conditions

Bloq infrastructure is non-custodial and allows you to stake your MATIC while retaining control. At no point does Bloq hold your private keys nor will Bloq have access to withdraw the staked MATIC.

There is no minimum to delegate to a MATIC validator. To spin up your own validator, you must stake a minimum of 14,000 MATIC. Contact us to spin up your own dedicated MATIC validator.

Yes. As the staking contracts are deployed on the Ethereum blockchain, users are required to pay transaction fees in ETH for any operation on the network, including delegating MATIC tokens.

After a user delegates their MATIC, they must wait for an unbonding period of 3-4 days before they can withdraw their delegation and receive their tokens back. During this time, the delegator will not earn any rewards.

For more information on staking MATIC, visit the official Polygon documentation.
