How To Add Polygon (Matic Network) to Metamask?

What is Polygon (Matic Network)?

The Matic Network is a platform enabling Ethereum scaling and foundation development. Lately, the project was renamed Polygon, but the trading ticker is MATIC. This Layer 2 scaling solution is supported by Binance and Coinbase and is already utilized by several projects like Aavegotchi and others.

MATIC is the native token of Polygon. It is an ERC-20 token operating on the Ethereum blockchain. The tokens exchange services on Polygon and serve as a contract currency between users who run within the Polygon ecosystem. The transaction fees on Polygon are paid in MATIC tokens.
