Polygon serves the blockchain industry with cheaper transaction fees. If you wish to learn more about creating a Polygon Wallet and start saving some dollars on gas fees, then this is the article for you!

What is Polygon?

Polygon is a sidechain scaling solution for public blockchains. It supports all the existing Ethereum tooling along with faster and cheaper transactions. It also provides tools to create scalable decentralized applications (dApps). dApps prioritize performance, user experience (UX), and security for developers.

Now to create your Polygon Wallet, simply follow the steps outlined below:

Step 1: Create your MetaMask Wallet

a. Go to Google Chrome Web Store and Search for MetaMask

Search MetaMask

b. Add the MetaMask Extension by clicking “Add to Chrome”

c. Create Your MetaMask Account

    • The page will ask you to choose between “Import Wallet” and “Create Wallet.” Choose “Create Wallet.”
    • Create your password, and then your secret recovery phrase will appear. Copy your seed phrase and save it in a VERY safe location.
    • Confirm the seed phrase. You will be asked to arrange the phrase in order. Click confirm, and you are all done!

Important: DO NOT share your seed phrase with anyone, ever. Keep a secured copy of it in your phone or write it down on a secured note.

Step 2: Add the Matic Mainnet on your Networks

To do this, click on the “Ethereum Mainnet” found on the upper right-hand of your screen. The available networks will appear. Click “Custom RPC” to create your Polygon Mainnet.
