Frequently asked questions

What is validating?


Validators provide the technical ablilities to be able to offer a secure and stable infrastructure. Validators create new blocks on Polygon.




What is staking/delegating?


Not everyone has the know-how, time or ability to be a validator, however token holders can delegate a portion of their tokens to a validator. Delegating is also called staking.




Why should you stake/delegate?


When you delegate tokens to a validator, you are helping to secure the network and you will receive rewards for your assistance. As your tokens are delegated for longer periods, you will receive more rewards. Your tokens will always remain your property and Staking4All cannot move your tokens anywhere.




Can you 'unstake'/'undelegate'?


Yes, you can 'undelegate' or 'unstake' your tokens at any time. It does take about 9 days for your token to undelegate and become transferrable. It is possible to 'redelegate' without the 9 day waiting period.




How do you stake/delegate your tokens?
