STAGE 2

The Grand Staking League

Stage 2 is the final and last stage of Counter Stake, Matic Network's incentivized testnet staking program. This is the stage where we encourage validators and the community to perform "Attacks" and "Break the system". Validators are encouraged to conduct attacks against the network - economic attacks or those based on bugs in the code.
