🦊 For MetaMask Users

Please make sure that you have the necessary Prerequisite Knowledge before proceeding with this guide.

For those who use/want to use MetaMask to predict on the app and don't have any funds in their wallet on Polygon, the Deposit Funds page will help them bring funds from Ethereum to Polygon. Read on for more clarity...

Step 0 - Connect your MetaMask wallet with the app and go to the Deposit Funds page

A guide on how to connect your MetaMask wallet with the app can be found here.

After logging in, navigate to Home > My Funds > Deposit Funds.

Step 1 - Connect Wallet

In the first step, you can either select:

  • MetaMask You have funds in the MetaMask wallet you connected with the app in step 0 on Ethereum, and you want to bridge/migrate them to Polygon (funds move from Ethereum to Polygon in the same wallet)

  • WalletConnect You have funds in another wallet on Ethereum, and you want to deposit them in the MetaMask wallet you connected with the app in step 0 on Polygon (funds move from another wallet on Ethereum to the MetaMask wallet on Polygon)

Step 2 - Choose Network

In the second step, you need to select the network from where you're bringing funds into your MetaMask wallet.

  • Ethereum

    You have funds in MetaMask or some other wallet on Ethereum and you want to deposit them in your MetaMask wallet on Polygon

  • Polygon (Not applicable for MetaMask connections)

In step 2, the Ethereum option is selected by default and can't be changed to Polygon Network for obvious reasons.

Obvious reason = if you have funds on Polygon already, you can use them to predict on the app directly without depositing them.

Step 3 - Choose deposit speed

When you're depositing funds from Ethereum, you have two choices available in terms of deposit speed:

  1. Standard Deposit

    • This method uses the Matic PoS bridge

    • Deposit time = ~8 mins

    • Fees = Gas fees to be paid Ethereum

  2. Fast Deposit (temporarily unavailable)

    • This method uses Connext

    • Deposit time = ~3 mins

    • Fees = Connext fees (calculated at the time of deposit) + Gas fees to be paid on Ethereum

Choose the deposit method you're most comfortable with.

Step 4 - Enter Deposit Amount

Enter the amount you want to deposit in your MetaMask wallet on Polygon and hit the Deposit button.

Step 5 - Approve the deposit transaction(s)

Please note that you'll need to pay the necessary gas fees on Ethereum from the wallet you connected with the app in step 1 to complete the deposit; so make sure that you have enough ETH to cover the necessary gas costs.

For first time deposits, users will have to make a one-time approval transaction, before moving on to the deposit transaction.
