Creating a wallet
To access the wonders of Magic Eden, you'll need a wallet. We recommend two options that provide seamless integration and security:
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.
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).
