The Metablox Mint is scheduled for Monday, May 23rd . The next series of blog posts will help you get ready.
It’s important to prepare now You may think you’re ready because you have ETH or MATIC in your MetaMask Wallet right now; however, you likely have the ERC-20 tokens, which do not work for Minting.
Why won’t my ETH or MATIC work? Specifically, your ERC-20 tokens won’t work.
We built Metablox on the Polygon chain; for this reason, only wETH or MATIC on the Polygon chain will work for Minting.
Why did we build on Polygon? We built on Polygon in order to increase transaction speeds and minimize gas fees.
How to bridge your Ethereum to Polygon We recommend two ways to bridge your Ethereum to Polygon:
Using Polygon Web Wallet Using OpenSea Important : We have found that once you initiate the transaction, bridging can take >30 minutes.
