Setup your wallet for Polygon (Matic Chain) and Testnet
How to setup your wallet to interact with Pepemon contracts on Matic.
If you’re wondering which wallet you should use, consider downloading MetaMask. MetaMask is a free and secure browser extension that allows users to seamlessly interact with the Ethereum blockchain.
You’ll need to configure the Matic Network custom RPC to your MetaMask. It’s pretty simple and straightforward, and it’s easy to switch back and forth between Layer 1 and Layer 2 using the button near the top of the MetaMask application.
- Click on the network selection button on the top of the app.
- Click on the “Custom RPC” to add the Matic mainnet information.
- Select “Custom RPC”.
After clicking “Custom RPC”, a screen will appear allowing you to set up the custom RPC for Matic Network.
Enter in the Matic mainnet details as follows:
Network Name: Matic Mainnet
Chain ID: 137 (mainnet) or 80001 (testnet)
Be sure you don’t miss any of the above fields. Once you’ve added the details click on the “Save” button. You’ll then be connected to the Matic mainnet.
You can now close the dialog box.
To transfer your assets from the Ethereum mainchain to the Matic mainnet for use on QuickSwap, please use the POS bridge. With the POS bridge you can quickly move your assets from the Ethereum mainchain to the Matic mainnet.
Now open the Matic Web Wallet. Here you’ll be able to transfer your assets from Ethereum over to Matic. You can access the Matic Web Wallet here: https://wallet.matic.network.
Once you access your wallet, connect it to your MetaMask account (with the Ethereum mainnet selected as the network). The Matic Web Wallet supports MetaMask.
After connecting to your MetaMask account, it will then navigate back to the Matic Wallet interface.
You can easily deposit your funds from Ethereum to Matic using the web wallet. Ensure you have ETH or ERC 20 tokens on the Ethereum mainnet.
Step 1: Switch from PLASMA BRIDGE to POS BRIDGE.
Click on the “Switch to POS” button in the Matic Wallet.
Step 2: After clicking on the “Matic Wallet” button, a “Deposit” button will appear below, just above the “Withdraw” button.
Click on the “Deposit” button.
You’ll get a popup where you can then enter which token you plan to deposit with the amount. Make sure your deposit amount doesn’t exceed the funds you have available.
After you fill in the details, click on the “Deposit to Matic Network” button.
Step 3: After clicking on “Deposit to Matic Network”, you’ll be asked to “Confirm” your transaction in the MetaMask wallet.
Once your transaction is successful, you’ll receive a confirmation message. Your funds should be shortly deposited onto the Matic Network.
Step 4: Once your transaction is successful you can switch over to the Matic Network on MetaMask in order to interact with Layer 2.
It takes 6–8 minutes on an average for your balance to reflect in your Matic mainnet wallet.
If you want to trade your tokens after you bridged to Matic network your best solution is to use Quickswap DEX. Like Uniswap on Ethereum, Quickswap offers an easy and decentralized way to swap assets, but because the Exchange AMM is hosted on Polygon the transaction costs are very very low (eg. swap assets for as low as $0.000019)
Great, isn't it? Well let's give it a try an swap your first $PPDEX tokens on Quickswap so that you save all the expensive transaction costs from Ethereum to acquire even more tokens with every swap.
- 1.Open Quickswap. Always check that the address you are loading is https://quickswap.exchange/ before you start trading.
- 2.Check that your wallet is pointed out at Matic mainnet on the top right corner of the page.
If you see this you still need to switch your wallet to Matic Mainnet.
3. Start by swapping any of the other assets you bridged from ETH chain and search for PPDEX in the second dropdown section.
If for whatever reason you cannot find PPDEX and PPBLZ by searching the token list, then use the following token addresses to add them yourself
This is an example on how to Swap ETH for PPDEX
4. Approve spending of any of the tokens in order to start trading.
This is needed only the first time you are swapping from that asset to another one.
5. After you have approved the spending of the assets it's time to hit that Swap button and execute the trade!
Always check the price impact before confirming your swap!
6. Not only that the swaps are super cheap, but compared to Uniswap/Sushiswap or any other decentralized exchange on Ethereum, swaps are even more faster on Quickswap because of how Polygon is designed to work.
So to recap, cheap and fast swaps for your favorite tokens on Quickswap powered by Polygon are not available for all Pepemon token holders!
