How to use Polygon (MATIC) Network with MetaMask

If you’re already on Ethereum and use MetaMask, it is really simple to get started on the Polygon network (formerly known as Matic network).

Adding the Polygon/Matic network to MetaMask
  • Purchase MATIC (ERC-20) from Uniswap or other DEXs on Ethereum mainnet, then bridge them from Ethereum to the Polygon network, or
  • Purchase MATIC from a CEX that supports Polygon network, such as Binance, and withdraw them directly to your wallet on the Polygon network.

How to Cross the Polygon Bridge from Ethereum using MetaMask

Anyone can use the Polygon Bridge to transfer ETH, ALN or any ERC-20 between the Ethereum and Polygon networks.

Official Polygon Bridge to transfer ETH and ERC-20 from and to Ethereum
  1. Search for ‘Matic Token’ in the ‘FROM Ethereum’ section
  2. Enter the number of MATIC tokens you want to swap
  3. Click ‘Transfer’ and follow the instructions to complete the transfer

Trading ALN on QuickSwap

With MATIC in your Polygon wallet, you can now execute transactions and swaps on the Polygon network, and purchase ALN tokens on the QuickSwap DEX.

Adding ALN Liquidity on QuickSwap

To add liquidity to the ETH-ALN pair on QuickSwap, you need to supply an equivalent value of ETH and ALN to the pool.

About Polygon

Polygon is the first well-structured, easy-to-use platform for Ethereum scaling and infrastructure development. Its core component is Polygon SDK, a modular, flexible framework that supports building and connecting Secured Chains like Plasma, Optimistic Rollups, zkRollups, Validium, etc, and Standalone Chains like Polygon POS, designed for flexibility and independence. Polygon’s scaling solutions have seen widespread adoption with 500+ Dapps, ~567M+ txns, and ~6M+ daily txns.

About QuickSwap

QuickSwap is a fork of Uniswap that runs on the Polygon network (formerly Matic Network), a full-stack scaling solution for Ethereum. Polygon features lower transaction fees compared to the Ethereum mainnet, enabling QuickSwap to facilitate token swaps at a lower cost relative to exchanges like Uniswap v2.
