To get started on PolyDEX, the first thing you'll need is to set up a wallet that supports Polygon ( Matic ). Wallets are available both on desktop computers and on smartphone devices. You'll need to choose the wallet that fits your needs best.
When you're setting up a wallet, be sure to:
- ✅ Download and install only the latest version from an official source.
- ✅ Follow the setup guide carefully.
- ✅ Safely back up your recovery phrases.
- ❌ NEVER share your recovery phrases with anyone, under any circumstances.
- ❌ NEVER input your recovery phrase to a website or app, other than your wallet app.
Mobile device wallets and desktop-based wallets have different strengths and weaknesses. Consider which fits your needs better to help decide which type of wallet to use.

Smartphone/Mobile wallets allow you to access your crypto almost anywhere. Wallets are available on both Android and iOS devices.
We have launched Cryption Wallet app officially on Android. There are other alternatives available like Trust Wallet, Metamask. Cryption wallet will support polyDEX extensively in the near future which will make access to PolyDEX and partner dapps very easy for users.
Desktop wallets are available on your home computer or laptop computer. Wallets on your computer can run as standalone applications, or as web browser plugins for popular browsers like Chrome and Firefox.
Metamask is the most populat web wallet used today. You can download the metamask from here: Metamask Official Page. Make sure to checkout their docs, to understand how metamask works and what are the features.
**NEVER, in any situation, should you ever give someone your private key or recovery phrase ("seed phrase"). This will give someone complete access to your crypto!
The genuine Cryption Network site and staff will never ask you to input your seed phrase.**
Cryption Network's main goal is to make DeFi and crypto more accessible to retail users. Getting familiarised with all the wallets and intricacies pose a challenge and hindrance for the new users which might put them off.
To tackle this issue, we have integrated novel service: Torus Wallet which enables users to use PolyDEX by using their social logins like google, facebook, twitter and discord. This is the recommended way for new users to start. This way, new comers can start using PolyDEX immediately while giving them window to learn and get familiar at the same time.
Once you become familiar enough, you should then move on to using Metamask like browser wallet which gives you complete control over your sensitive keys.
