[GUIDE]: How to connect Polygon Network with Metamask?
To interact with DApps and to own your tokens, you will need a crypto wallet, which lets you own your private keys. Polygon supports multiple wallets as below but the best, most popular and easiest cloud-based wallet is Metamask.
Step 1: Get a Metamask Wallet
You can set it up as a Google Chrome extension or an app on your phone. Remember to create multiple physical backups of your Metamask wallet keys and store them securely. You lose your keys, you lose your tokens. Download your Metamask wallet here.
Here is a quick video tutorial on how can you set it up.
Step 2: Add Polygon to your Metamask
This bit is configuration. Don’t worry you only have to do it once. Metamask does not come pre-loaded with Polygon network, as it does with Ethereum. Here is how you add Polygon Network to our Metamask.

Step 3: Connect Wallet to Polygon

It will now ask you to sign a transaction on the blockchain. This transaction is to log in and should be asking you to spend any MATIC.
You are connected!!
If you are as excited about Polygon’s future as we are, then you must hold some Polygon (MATIC) tokens.
If yes, then why simply buy and hold? Stake your tokens and see your bag of Polygon (MATIC) tokens grow. Staking Polygon token on the blockchain gives you an extra return in MATIC terms, and you can withdraw anytime. All on blockchain and 100% secure.
