How to stake MATIC (Polygon) using TokenPocket mobile wallet

The Ethereum blockchain has its limitations e. g. low throughput, high gas fees, a delayed PoW finality, etc. The problem of scalability has become more and more challenging. Therefore, there is a great need for projects that can quickly, securely, and exquisitely solve this problem. 

One of the best projects that most successfully cope with all the imperfections of Ethereum is Polygon. Polygon is a protocol and a framework for building and connecting Ethereum-compatible blockchain networks. Aggregating scalable solutions on Ethereum supporting a multi-chain Ethereum ecosystem.
