ALN live on Polygon + listing on QuickSwap DEX + MATIC with MetaMask Guide

Dear Alunauts,

We are proud to announce that the Aluna token has been successfully bridged to Polygon and is now listed on QuickSwap! 🎉

The WETH-ALN pair on QuickSwap has been seeded with $50,000+ of liquidity, including 350,000 ALN from the Ecosystem Fund.

This article also provides a simple guide for:

  • Using the Polygon network with MetaMask

ALN x Polygon x QuickSwap: Fast swaps. Cheap fees.

Anyone can now buy ALN on QuickSwap’s decentralized exchange, while enjoying lightning fast swaps with near-zero gas fees powered by Polygon’s full-stack scaling solution.

You can also use the Polygon Bridge to transfer ALN tokens from Ethereum to the Polygon network and add liquidity to ALN pairs on QuickSwap.

The official address of ALN on the Polygon network is 0xa8fcee762642f156b5d757b6fabc36e06b6d4a1a.

The ALN token address on Polygon can be verified on the official Polygon Token Mapper.

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).

First, go to Polygonscan and click on the ‘Add Polygon Network’ button in the footer. You can also do this on QuickSwap by clicking the ‘Switch to Matic’ button.

This will automatically add the RPC config for the network in a few clicks — so that you can use MetaMask, but on the Polygon network!

Don’t trust, verify!

Check that the RPC config details are correct, then click ‘Approve’ to add the Polygon/Matic network, and ‘Switch network’ to start using it on MetaMask.

Adding the Polygon/Matic network to MetaMask

The native token of the Polygon network is MATIC, and all transactions on Polygon require MATIC tokens for gas fees.

Now all that’s left to do is to get some MATIC tokens on the Polygon network. If you don’t already own MATIC, you can either:

  • Purchase MATIC (ERC-20) from Uniswap or other DEXs on Ethereum mainnet, then bridge them from Ethereum to the Polygon network, or

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.

In this example, we will bridge some MATIC (ERC-20) tokens from Ethereum to Polygon using MetaMask.

Official Polygon Bridge to transfer ETH and ERC-20 from and to Ethereum

Head to the Polygon Bridge and login with your Web3 wallet (MetaMask, WalletConnect, or Coinbase Wallet), then complete 3 simple steps to complete the bridging process:

  1. Search for ‘Matic Token’ in the ‘FROM Ethereum’ section

The transfer process consists of two transactions; one to approve MATIC transactions from your wallet, and another to send the MATIC tokens to the bridge.

Note that paying fees is required to move funds between the Ethereum network and the Polygon network.

After making the jump to the Polygon network, all your ALN swaps on Quickswap will cost less than 1/1000th of the fees you usually pay on Uniswap.

Read the Polygon/Matic Web Wallet documentation to learn more about how to move your ETH and ERC20 tokens between networks.

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.

By adding liquidity you’ll earn 0.25% of all trades on this pair proportional to your share of the pool. Fees are added to the pool, accrue in real time and can be claimed by withdrawing your liquidity.

After adding liquidity, add the token address of the LP token to your Metamask: 0x150255a6ba2d32ac058e8b435a445f5137a21857 to view the Quickswap-ETH/ALN-LP token on your MetaMask wallet.
