In this section, you'll find key specifics related to Polygon, including staking, bonding, slashing risk, rewards distribution, and more:
|Minimum Staking Amount||The minimum is 1 MATIC.|
|Bonding Time||There are no fixed or standardized bonding periods for Polygon.|
|Unbonding Time||The unbonding period on Polygon is 80 checkpoints which equates to approximately 3-4 days. Every checkpoint takes about 3 hours.|
|Slashing Risk||If the validator you allocate your MATIC tokens to falls short, their rewards and your staking rewards get reduced.|
If the violations persist, the validator could be ejected from the Polygon network, preventing you from earning further rewards.
|Staking Rewards Distribution||The rewards are distributed at each checkpoint. Pending rewards accrue in the contract address and need to be "claimed" via a transaction on-chain.|
The percentage of rewards allocated to each delegator will vary based on the relative stake of the delegator, validator, and overall stake.
|Staking Rewards Compound||Polygon staking rewards are compounded manually. You can only restake rewards if your pending rewards are at least 1 MATIC.|
|Inflation Rate||MATIC's current inflation rate is about 5%, but it's expected to decrease as the total supply approaches the maximum limit of 10 billion tokens.|
