How to

Get coin to crypto wallet

In order to buy on NFT marketplace like Opensea, you need to have to set up a crypto wallet and send some coins to it.

In this example, we show how to withdraw crypto assets from Binance, the biggest crypto exchange, to your crypto wallet.

Because Chumbi NFTs are using the Polygon network we withdraw its native token MATIC. Prepare your wallet by setting up Polygon chain. If you don't have any, you need to buy some first and then in the spot wallet locate MATIC and click withdraw. Choose Polygon network and triple-check your wallet address. Also, make sure your wallet works on the Polygon chain.

Convert Polygon to WETH

Current Chumbi NFTs exist on Polygon chain and you need WETH (violet icon on opensea) to cover the NFT cost and a few MATIC for transaction gas fees.

You can use many exchanges. We show how to convert MATIC to ETH (sometimes called wrapped ETH, because it is ETH token on Polygon chain) on quickswap decentralized exchange. We recommend converting a bit more in case NFT price raises meanwhile.

Connect you wallet to quickswap. Then select the MATIC on the top and ETH as the second pair in the exchange.
