How to set up a MetaMask wallet and integrate a Polygon Chain?

Polygon is a protocol and a framework for building and connecting Ethereum-compatible blockchain networks. It is the choice among developers and users because of its extremely low gas fees, with transaction fees cheaper than $0.001 and rapid transaction speeds.

The minted &id will be available for users once the transaction is completed on the platform. However, it is important to understand the basic guidelines of setting up the Polygon network on Metamask. Let’s look at the steps for setting up the Polygon network on Metamask.

Download the Metamask Extension

The first prerequisite is having the browser extension installed on your computer. Download the extension from the official chrome marketplace.

Import existing Metamask Wallet or create a new one

Create a new Metamask wallet or import the existing wallet with the recovery phrase.

If you already have an existing wallet, skip the below step:

Setup your password for your wallet and keep the secret recovery phrase somewhere safe. The secret recovery phrase will help you to import your wallet in the future.

Setup MetaMask to connect to Matic Network

Step 1: Hover to the top left side of the wallet and click on the tab saying ‘Ethereum Mainnet.

Step 2: A drop-down menu will appear on the screen. Scroll down until you find Custom RPC.

Step 3: Click on Custom RPC and enter the Matic Mainnet settings as follows:

Network Name: Polygon

ChainID: 137

Currency Symbol (Optional): MATIC
