Polygon Liquid Staking
What and why is Polygon Liquid Staking?
Ankr Staking offers Polygon token holders the opportunity to stake MATIC and in return claim Polygon Liquid Staking tokens — ankrMATIC (ex-aMATICc).
ankrMATIC a reward-bearing token, meaning that the fair value of 1 ankrMATIC token vs. MATIC increases over time as staking rewards accumulate inside the token.
ankrMATIC also offers instant liquidity for your staked MATIC, enabling you to connect ankrMATIC with DeFi platforms and earn several more layers of rewards.
There are no more new stakes getting aMATICb token. However, old stakes with aMATICb keep generating you rewards. You can also switch aMATICb for ankrMATIC now (opens in a new tab) (supply is limited).
You can stake your MATIC both on the Ethereum and native Polygon networks.
