How to stake MATIC (Polygon) using Frontier mobile wallet via MetaMask

The Polygon platform, which is the new brand name for the network formerly known as Matic, aims to create a scalable multi-chain ecosystem of blockchains compatible with the Ethereum Network. 

Crypto enthusiasts nicknamed Polygon "the Internet of Ethereum blockchains", which fully describes the essence of the platform, which expands on Ethereum’s capabilities and applicability. 

To implement the idea, the developers presented a second-level SaaS solution containing frameworks for creating interacting blockchains in a single space. Anyone can become a part of this ecosystem by staking their MATIC tokens and receive rewards for this.

We wrote more about the Polygon Network in a separate article:
