Obtaining Polygon assets (DAI, WETH, MATIC, GHST)
on Polygon
​
To take part in our Genesis savings pool, you will need some DAI on Polygon, as well as a small amount of MATIC on Polygon (Matic PoS mainnet) to pay for transaction fees.
​
For take part in our ETH savings pools, you will need some WETH on Polygon.
For our adventure into Aavegotchi, you will need some GHST on Polygon.

Different options
  1. 1.
    Bridge your DAI from Ethereum to Polygon πŸŒ‰ If you already have DAI on the Ethereum mainnet, you can to move this over to Polygon. You can use the official Matic Wallet bridge, the Multichain router or the Hop Exchange. Here is a great written guide for the official bridge, as well as a YouTube tutorial. Note: this will require a transaction on Ethereum mainnet. Depending on the transaction cost (gas fees) of Ethereum, this only makes sense if you want to transfer relatively large amounts of your existing DAI.
  2. 2.
    Bridge your DAI from other blockchains to Polygon πŸŒ‰ If you already have:
    • DAI on Binance Smart Chain (BSC)
    • xDAI on the Gnosis chain
    • DAI on Fantom
    • DAI on Avalanche
    • DAI on Arbitrum
    • DAI on Optimism
    You can use the Multichain router, Synapse, Hop Exchange or the Connext Bridge to transfer DAI to Polygon. See this external guide. Transaction costs will be very low.
  3. 3.
    Buy DAI directly on Polygon (via a third-party) πŸ‘› There are multiple service providers that offer the possibility to directly buy DAI on Polygon. e.g. https://ramp.network/buy/ or https://global.transak.com/ Make sure to select "DAI on Polygon chain" or "DAI on Polygon network" so you end up with the correct DAI. Most often you can pay by either a Bank Transfer (e.g. SEPA deposit) or a debit or credit card. Transaction fees should be somewhat cheaper compared to transferring DAI from Ethereum.

    Swap on a decentralized exchange on Polygon πŸ”„
    If you already hold other assets on Polygon (e.g. ETH or MATIC or USDC or another token), you can use the Quickswap Exchange or Paraswap or Slingshot to easily swap them for DAI. You will need a very small amount of MATIC to pay for the (negligible) transaction costs.

Each transaction on Polygon will require a small amount of MATIC tokens in your wallet.
If you purchased MATIC on a centralized exchange (such as Binance, Crypto.com, Okex, OkCoin or Ascendex), you can most likely withdraw it in your own personal wallet on Polygon (e.g. see this guide for Binance).
If you already hold other digital assets in your wallet on Polygon, you can convert them to MATIC using the native Polygon web app (without the need for MATIC tokens). See this guide. Luckily, there are three options to obtain free MATIC tokens as well:
  • Option 1
    Solve the CAPTCHA at this faucet to obtain 0.001 MATIC.
    ​
  • Option 2 Connect your wallet to the official Polygon Bridge at https://wallet.matic.network/bridge, and sign the transaction. This often, but not always, results in you obtaining 0.001 MATIC.
  • Option 3
    • Make sure your wallet holds at least 1 DAI or USDC or USDT on Polygon (see above)
      • Connect your wallet to https://quickswap.exchange/#/swap​
      • In the top right corner press the "CLAIM MATIC" button. This will give you 0.001 MATIC, if your wallet does not hold any MATIC tokens. This should be enough to get started.
See this great YouTube Tutorial from The Defiant for more details.
πŸ‘› Alternatively, you can use one of the third-party fiat onboarding solutions mentioned above.

When you bridge your Ether to Polygon, it will show up as 'Wrapped Ether', also known as wETH or WETH. This is the type you will need to enter a GoodGhosting savings pool on Polygon. Often it is simply referred to as ETH.
Different options to obtain it
  1. 1.
    Bridge your ETH from Ethereum to Polygon πŸŒ‰ If you already have ETH on the Ethereum mainnet, you can to move this over to Polygon. You can use the official Matic Wallet bridge or the Multichain router or the Hop Exchange, as mentioned above.
    Doublecheck you are bridging normal ETH into Polygon. Do not bridge the mainnet 'WETH' ERC-20 token onto Polygon using the official bridge. Sadly, that is another type of wrapper which is incompatible with GoodGhosting.
  2. 2.
    Bridge your ETH from other blockchains to Polygon πŸŒ‰ If you already have:
    • ETH on Optimism
    • ETH on Arbitrum
    • ETH on Binance Smart Chain (BSC)
    • WETH on the xDAI chain
    • ETH on Fantom
    • WETH on Avalanche
    You can use the Multichain router, Synapse, Hop Exchange or the Connext Bridge to transfer ETH to Polygon. See this external guide. Transaction costs will be very low. Note that each bridge may support different chains.
  3. 3.
    Buy WETH directly on Polygon (via a third-party) πŸ‘› There are multiple service providers that offer the possibility to directly buy DAI on Polygon. e.g. https://ramp.network/buy/ or https://global.transak.com/ Make sure to select "ETH on Polygon chain" or "WETH on Polygon network" so you end up with the correct token. Most often you can pay by either a Bank Transfer (e.g. SEPA deposit) or a debit or credit card. Transaction fees should be somewhat cheaper compared to transferring ETH from Ethereum.

    If you already hold other assets on Polygon (e.g. DAI or MATIC or USDC or another token), you can use the Quickswap Exchange or Paraswap or Slingshot to easily swap them for WETH. You will need a very small amount of MATIC to pay for the (negligible) transaction costs.

GHST is the primary utility token of the Aavegotchi ecosystem and is used to buy and sell goods within the Aavegotchi world, including Aavegotchis themselves.
If you purchased GHST on a centralized exchange, such as Crypto.com or OKEx, you can likely withdraw in your own personal wallet on Polygon (e.g. see this guide for OKEx). Be careful to not withdraw to Ethereum mainnet. Three additional options are available to acquire GHST on Polygon:
  • From a Polygon Decentralized Exchange GHST can be openly traded on a variety of decentralized exchanges on Polygon. These DEXes have different liquidity so be sure to check your trading price against a few places to find the best deal.
  • On the Aavegotchi website
    The Aavegotchi website has an in-house Swapper that can be used to trade for GHST directly on their platform. There are details on additional GHST options as well. We have provided a video guide through this platform as well, found here.
  • Bridge from Ethereum to Polygon
    If you already have the GHST token on the Ethereum mainnet, you can use the Aavegotchi Bridge to cross for the lowest transaction costs possible.

We also have a slick feature for adding tokens from any savings pool to your wallet list if they were not already there. πŸ‘‡
