Polygon has teamed with BitGo to give MATIC holders with staking options. The governance facilitator spoke about the latest controversy.
Throughout the crypto winter, the Polygon network has been known for its multiple strategic alliances. It recently announced a cooperation with crypto custody provider BitGo to provide staking services to ERC-20 MATIC holders.
MATIC holders will now have access to wallet and custody services thanks to a new collaboration between Polygon and BitGo. MATIC holders on the ERC-20 chain can earn rewards by staking their currencies as well.
“By delivering more features for MATIC, we’re providing investors with a safer way to safeguard their funds and platforms with the tools they need to develop the future,” said Chen Fang, Chief Operating Officer of BitGo.
On January 17, Polygon stated that it had successfully completed the Delhi hard fork, which intended to cut gas expenses and reorganise the address chain. The community was surprised by the hard fork because just 15 validators participated in the voting process.
However, Mateusz Rzeszowski, Polygon’s governance facilitator, posted a Twitter thread to give further light on the upgrade’s execution. As of January 18, all active validators had completed the Delhi hard fork. According to a Polygon forum, the 3.5 billion MATIC coins staked authenticate the upgraded version of the chain.
This week, the price of MATIC is falling. However, there hasn’t been any movement in the asset’s price in the last 24 hours. It is presently trading at $0.9526, down 0.4% from its opening price.
