How To Setup Your Metamask Wallet For Matic & Polygon

This is NOT financial advice. Please see our Financial and Affiliate Disclosures below for more details.

Hello, and welcome. David here from CryptoTutorials.org. Today I am going to show you how to set up your Metamask Polygon wallet so you can use it on the Polygon network. If you want to go on QuickSwap or maybe you want to just do some farming games or stake some tokens. You're gonna be able to set it up, so you can easily do all of this straight from your browser using your Metamask wallet, extension

Before I teach you all about this new token, I do want to let you know that we still have our $97 airdrop masterclass going for free right now. Not sure how much longer we're going to keep this up, but if you are interested in picking up free crypto and I don't mean junk scam tokens. I mean top quality, name brand tokens. Things like Blocto, Muneriam, things that have been really, really valuable, take this class. I'm going to teach you how to pick out the good ones, how to apply for the good airdrops and how to successfully get some real coins that are going to hold some value. Go to GetMyFreeCrypto.com and let me know where you want the course link sent. I will send it right over for you to take the class.

Set up Metamask Polygon Wallet

All right, time to set up our MetaMask wallet so that we can bring some Polygon MATIC token in, and do some work with it. You can also read my post about what is matic token and how to buy matic on polygon so you can get some useful info about it. I pulled up QuickSwaps guide right here, because you need a little bit of information. You're going to need this stuff right here.


I recommend copying and pasting it all. Because as soon as you open your Meta Mask and pull up custom RPC. That's how we're going to add it. If you click back here to copy and paste this MATIC info, it's going to take focus off this and close it. Kind of annoying. I don't want to type all this in, I just want to copy and paste it to make sure I get it all right.

So I copied it into a text document so I could just dump it right in here. Matic Main Net, URLs. Sometimes you get an error when you have a space at the beginning of it from copying and pasting it. I've had that happen more than once. Call it Matic. We're going to set the block explorer for the Matic network, and we're going to save it.

What is Test net?

Now you only really need to make the Matic main net. You don't need to worry about the Test net unless you're a developer and you're going to be using the test network. That's what the test net is for. It's for practicing and making things without having to use real world currencies. So if you're gonna be using the test net to try things out, go ahead and set it up, otherwise main net is all you need to do at this point.

We're rocking and rolling. We've got our MATIC main net set up. I can go back to my account and see I have no MATIC right now. That is the next step. I'm going to copy my wallet address and I'm going to go into Gemini and transfer my MATIC over.

If you want to learn how to do that, here is the video up. Also please checkout my article on matic missing problem when trasfering token out from gemini. Let me know if there's specific things that would be more useful to you guys, please put it in the comments. I would love to know what are the kinds of videos you'd like me to make? What would be helpful for you. All right. Thank you again much Aloha.
