How to participate in a Polygon Pool during a Polkastarter IDO?
If you’re already an avid Polygon user or you’re eager to start participating in the Polygon pools in the future, we’ve put together this tutorial guide to help you navigate when you participate in future IDOs.
Before you Start
- You will need MATIC in order to participate in the Polygon Pools to pay for the network fees. You can buy MATIC on Uniswap, Coinbase, and other exchanges. And you can buy MATIC on the Polygon network on Quickswap and Dfyn.
- If you have never used the Polygon network before, check out this tutorial from Binary Assets and ensure your Polygon wallet is connected and funded before attempting to participate in a Polkastarter IDO Polygon pool. After you’ve successfully connected your MetaMask to Polygon, proceed with the steps below:
Step 1: Navigate
Go to Polkastarter.com and click “Connect Wallet” in the top right corner.
Step 2: Select Polygon
On the top right-hand corner of the site, you’ll see a dropdown button that says “Ethereum”, “BSC”, "Polygon" or "Celo".
Click on the network name and a dropdown menu will display all available networks. You should see “Polygon”. Click on it.
Step 3: Confirm
The Polkastarter site is now displaying Polygon Pools! If your wallet has a message saying you have selected the wrong network, please connect your MetaMask to Polygon and reconnect Polkastarter with steps 1 and 2 above.
Step 4: IDO!
From here, you’re ready to participate in future Polkastarter IDOs on the Polygon network.
You can complete steps 1–3 before the IDO, and we recommend doing so to ensure everything works smoothly with your MetaMask and Polygon.
