HOW TO GET MATIC


Prerequisites

Setup MetaMask wallet

Recommended (Fast & cheap)

Transfer from some CEX to Polygon network

  • Purchase MATIC on some CEX (Recommended: Binance, crypto.com)
  • Transfer (or withdraw) your MATIC from the CEX to your Metamask wallet.

We strongly recommend this to save gas fees!

For Binance users, click here for the details. For crypto.com users, click here.

We currently know that Binance, crypto.com, bybit, gate.io, OKEx can transfer directly to MATIC network.

Please be aware that they allow to transfer to the MATIC (Polygon) network, not to the ERC20 (Ethereum) network.

If you strongly want to use Coinbase, proceed to the "Advanced", but you should expect high gas fees.

Advanced (Expect high gas fees)

Bridge from ERC20 Ethrerum network to Polygon network

If you have some ERC20 tokens on Ethereum network or your favorite CEX doesn't transfer to MATIC (Polygon) network, you need to bridge tokens on Ethrerum network to MATIC (Polygon) network.

  • Get some tokens such as MATIC, ETH or USDC on your favorite CEX/DEX. Note that those tokens have to be transferable to Ethrerum network (ERC20). (Skip this if you already have some)
  • Transfer (or withdraw) them to your Metamask wallet via ERC20 on Ethrerum network. (Skip this if you already have ERC20 tokens in yout MetaMask wallet)
  • Bridge tokens from Ethreum network to MATIC network at Polygon Bridge. (This needs to be PoS Bridge).
  • Swap the tokens to MATIC at the Polygon official Swap if the bridged tokens are not MATIC.
