Creating a wallet

Remember, never share your wallet's seed phrase with anyone to keep your funds secure.

Buying Polygon NFTs with a MetaMask wallet

Ensure you're on the Polygon Network

Converting Ethereum to Polygon

To transact on the Polygon Network, you'll need to convert your Ethereum to Polygon. Follow these steps:

  • Utilize established 'bridges' to convert Ethereum to Polygon

  • If you're bridging ETH, add a small amount of extra ETH to cover gas fees during the bridging process (usually around 0.01 ETH, but having 0.02 ETH is even safer).

Umbria Narni Bridge:

  • Access the Umbria Narni Bridge and select "Bridge Assets" to reach the bridge screen.

  • Connect your wallet with "Ethereum Mainnet" selected in your MetaMask and follow the instructions to send ETH from the Ethereum Network to the Polygon Network.

Polygon Bridge

  • Use Polygon Bridge and click the three dots next to "Add to MetaMask." Your wETH should appear in your MetaMask wallet when Polygon Mainnet is selected.

  • In case this doesn't work, go back to MetaMask, scroll down to "Add Token" on the Polygon Mainnet page, and add the following address: 0x7ceB23fD6bC0adD59E62ac25578270cFf1b9f619.

Swapping MATIC to wETH inside MetaMask

You can easily swap MATIC to wETH from within Metamask, follow the prompts in the example below:

To obtain more MATIC have two options: buying directly from a centralized exchange or swapping to MATIC on a decentralized exchange (DEX).
