How to Use Polygon Network

Polygon is a Layer Two solution blockchain to help ease congestion and transactions times and costs of the Ethereum main net. One of the major benefits of the Polygon network are transaction fee's that are in the range of $0.01-$0.50 Cents. Compared to $10-$300 using Ethereum main network.

While it may seem complicated the process of setting up your metamask to begin using Polygon is quite simple. Please follow the steps below or reach out to one of our team members for assistance.
