How to create a Polygon (MATIC) wallet

Pic 1

MATIC is the main token of the Polygon network, an L2 scaling solution for Ethereum. The Polygon network is designed to provide faster and cheaper Ethereum transactions using secure L2 solutions and autonomous sidechains. 

Using the keys from the Ethereum wallet, you can use both tokens on the Ether blockchain and on the Polygon blockchain. 

MATIC is the main token in the polygon network, just as Ether is the main token in the ether network. Without the MATIC token, you will not be able to perform operations on the polygon network.

Let's create a wallet for MATIC storage together.

Step 1.  Go to MetaMask and click the «Download for Chrome» button.

Step 8. Save the 12-word recovery phrase in a secure place. 

You will need it to quickly regain access to your wallet. It is better to save the phrase in several places: without it, if the password is lost, it will be impossible to restore access to the wallet even through the support service. And never share this data with anyone!
