If you do not yet have MetaMask installed, start by going to https://metamask.io/.

If you’re on a Desktop computer, you can add MetaMask as a browser extension.

If you’re on mobile, you can download the MetaMask App both from the website https://metamask.io/ and clicking “Download on the App Store” or simply searching for it on your phones App Store.

From there, click the “Install” button.

From there, click the “Open” button.

Once open, you’ll see the “Welcome to MetaMask” screen.

From here, click on the “Get started” button:

From here, you’ll be asked to create a password:

Next, you’ll need to set up your wallet.

If you’re advanced and familiar with DEX Wallet’s and you want to import and existing wallet, you can go ahead and do that if you’d like.

However, if you’re newer, and for the purposes of this guide, we’re going to create a new wallet.

So with that, let’s click on the “Create a new wallet” button:

From here, you’ll be asked to save your recovery phrase:

This is standard procedure when setting up wallets like this. Simply follow the instructions to save your recovery phrase. First start by clicking the “Start” button, which will take you to the “Secure your wallet” screen:

A lot of this is just standard procedure, so you can go on ahead and click the “Start” button when you’re ready:

It might ask you to confirm your password once again:

You’ll then be told to write down your recovery phrase:

Then click the “View” button to get your recovery phrase.

Once you’ve gotten and written down your recovery phrase, it will then ask you to confirm it by entering it in a certain order on the next screen:

Once confirmed, you’ll end up on the Congratulations screen:

From here, click the “Done” button.

It might ask you if you want to automatically check for security updates:

This is up to you, if you have any doubts you can simply click “No thanks” and move on.

This will take you to your wallet home screen:

So from here, let’s enable and switch to Polygon network.

First, start on your MetaMask home screen:

Most likely it will be set to Ethereum Network by default, so let’s switch the network to Polygon.

To do this, click the top dropdown that says “Ethereum Main Net.”

This will take you to the “Select a network” screen:

From here, click the “Add Network” button at the bottom of the screen.

This will take you to the list of available networks:

Towards the bottom, you’ll see Polygon Mainnet. Click “Add” next to Polygon Mainnet. This will take you to the Polygon Mainnet addition screen:

Click the blue “Approve” button to approve the addition of Polygon Mainnet to your MetaMask wallet.

When finished, you will get confirmation that the New network (Polygon Mainnet Network) was added:

From here, click the blue “Switch to network” button.

This will take you to the Polygon Mainnet switch confirmation screen:

From here, click the blue “Got it” button. This will take you back to your MetaMask wallet, except now you will be on Polygon Mainnet:

Great! Almost, done. Now you just need to get your MetaMask Polygon/Matic address to copy and paste into your profile.

Start by using the up and down arrow middle button, click on that. That should bring you to this next screen:

From there, click “Receive: (Receive crypto). That should take you to this next screen:

Here you should see a QR code, and then under where it says “Scan address to receive payment”, you’ll see your MetaMask wallet address:

Click the “Copy” button next to the wallet address:

From there, go to your Findom App profile –> edit –> payment, and then in the field where it says “Matic” (Polygon Mainnet) paste your MetaMask wallet address there. Then, click the “Save Changes” button at the bottom of the screen, and that’s it!

At this point, after completing the above steps, you will have successfully set up your MetaMask wallet, activated Polygon Mainnet and pasted your MetaMask wallet address in your Findom App profile.

At this point, you will have successfully completed Assignment #8, so you can fill out the form below and wait for further instructions for how to complete Assignment #9.
