Step 1: Setup Metamask Wallet & Add Polygon

Metamask is one of the most sought Crypto wallets for both Mobile and PC. Since its Google Chrome Browser extension is user-friendly, I advise you to download it by clicking on this link.

Once you have successfully added Metamask to your browser, click on its icon, which can be found at the top right corner of the screen.

Open the Metamask extension and click on the ‘Import Token’ option and enter a password that you want to use to access it.

Once done, now you will have to click on the Locked section to reveal your Secret Recovery Phrase, which is unique for each user.

Once unleashed, make sure to hide it from others and save it to a better place.

Once confirmed, you will be able to use the Metamask wallet.

To add Polygon to Metamask, open the browser extension and click on the Ethereum Mainnet drop-down option and then click on the ‘Add Network’.

In a new window, you will have to provide the following details:

Polygon has a dedicated bridge to transfer funds from its network from the Ethereum Mainnet.

Before you get started with the process, make sure your Metamask is on the ETH network if you have already added Polygon.

Now, visit the Polygon Wallet by clicking on this link. Once you are on the site, click on the ‘Connect to Wallet’ button located at the top right corner of the screen.
