Click the “Connect to a wallet” button in the upper right corner of your screen.
Select MetaMask from the menu.
MetaMask will open, then click “Next”
Click “Connect”
Back on QuickSwap, in the upper right corner, select “Switch to Matic”.
Your MetaMask Wallet will open. Click “Switch Network”.
Congratulations! You are now connected to the Polygon (Matic) Network!

Transferring your assets from the Ethereum Mainchain to the Matic Mainnet

From here, moving funds from Ethereum to Matic is easier than ever!
Back on the QuickSwap Interface, just click “Bridge Assets” in the upper right corner.
If you are transferring Ethereum or ERC-20 assets, make sure you have the “PoS Bridge” selected as the transfer mode. Then, click “Transfer”. If you are transferring MATIC, you will need to select the Plasma Bridge instead. This process should be automatic, but it’s still good to know.

Then, select “Move funds to Matic Mainnet” to begin your transfer.
Enter the amount you’d like the Transfer, and then click “Transfer”
