What to Know about the New Staking Mechanism
$SAND token holders can now directly stake their mSAND tokens without any addition or pairing with another token. Suffice to mention that the program is open to every gamer on Polygon Network. The new staking mechanism supports gasless transactions using Biconomy.
The Sandbox has also introduced a rewarding system to encourage the adoption of this system. For the first four weeks of the launch, about 500,000 mSAND will be available as rewards each week. Users can only claim their mSAND rewards once every week.
The staking program has opened on February 11 at 8:00 pm UTC, and the rewards will start on the same date but at 9:00 pm UTC. The Sandbox will release new announcements on the mSAND staking subsequently.
