Welcome to Day 2 of the Mini-contests. To earn rewards, you will need to perform a couple of tasks. On completing the tasks successfully, you will have to submit proof of actions taken on the Forum link.
The first 40 validators to do so (correctly) will win $15 worth of MATIC tokens each. The prize pool for Day 1 is $600 worth of MATIC tokens.
Before you proceed, we have noticed that there may be some issues with accessing the Dashboard on Firefox. We suggest you use Chrome or Brave for better accessibility.
How to play and win
- First, you will need to login to the Matic Staking Dashboard: https://wallet.matic.today/staking.
- Remember that in order to continue, you will need to log in using a different address than the one registered for your validator node. You cannot use the same address as the one you used to become a validator.
- You will also need some Matic Tokens on that address as well as some Goerli ETH on that address.
- To get some Matic Tokens you can get some tokens from our Faucet: https://faucet.matic.network
Select the Staking token from the list and Goerli from the network list and then enter your address in the text box below and click on Submit. You will then a Green “Confirm” button below it. Click on the Confirm button and you will have your tokens on the address.
- To get some Goerli ETH you can - https://goerli-faucet.slock.it/ or you could use this https://faucet.goerli.mudit.blog/
You will mainly be performing the following tasks:
- Delegate to a validator
- Re-delegate to a validator
- Claim Rewards as a delegator
Delegate tokens to a Validator
- Once you are logged in to the Dashboard, you can choose any validator from the list and click on the
- You can Delegate for any validator that you wish to.
- Clicking on the
Delegatebutton will open up a form for you:
You will need to add the number of tokens that you want to stake (input 25 tokens here). And then click on
Stake Nowbutton will ask you for confirmations on Metamask. Remember that you will be asked for confirmation twice. Note the TxHash of the 2nd transaction as that will be regarded as your proof.
Once your confirm both the transactions, you will get a success screen on the Dashboard
Once you’re at this screen, you will have to wait for a few minutes as it takes 12 confirmations on Goerli (~3-4 minutes) for the delegation to come through. Only then the Staking UI will be updated.
Click on Go to my account and you will see details of your Delegator Profile
The Txhash of the 2nd confirmation should look something like this:
Re-Delegate / Delegate Again
To re-delegate you will have to follow the same procedure as mentioned above - i.e. you need to delegate again. In case you don’t have tokens, get them again from the faucet. You will have to follow the same steps and get the Txhash for the 2nd confirmation and keep it handy with you.
Wait for at least an hour so as to know that you get a good chunk of rewards that can be claimed.
Great! So you have now delegated some tokens toward a validator now you’re getting your rewards for acting as a delegator. Now you can proceed ahead with claiming those rewards. To claim the rewards, you need to go to your delegator profile.
When you go to your Delegator profile you will see this:
You can click on New Rewards Card and you will be navigated to a new screen which will show you your rewards with a few actionable.
- You will see a
Withdraw Rewardbutton. Click on that button and it will ask you for a confirmation from Metamask.
- Once you have confirmed the transaction you will need to keep a note of it as it would be required for you to submit your proof. Your rewards on the Dashboard should be zero after confirmation.

Note that you will have to wait for 12 Block confirmations for the changes to reflect on the Dashboard.
Voila! You’re done performing all the steps.

You will be disqualified if your submission is not in the correct format. Remember the first 30 validators with correct entries will be selected based on the submission time on the Forum topic.
