A few questions

E-currency exchange

Hello, new to collecting Avatars and have a few questions. Question #1 I installed Metamask and selected Polygon Mainnet, and also connected my Wallet. Is this the correct Network for buying from Opensea? Question #2 I see an option to buy MATIC with Google Pay, and also to buy MATIC with a CC also. Seems pretty direct, but is there any reason I shouldn't? Question #3 If I purchase MATIC through either of these options do I have to convert them to ETH? Thanks in advance. I'm quite new to this.

    1. Never share your Secret Recovery Phrase with any site or a person. MetaMask does not use Gmail or web forms. Do not enter your Secret Recover Phrase into a pop-up window, even if it looks like MetaMask. Verify links are legitimate. Scammers often use these tactics.

    2. Beware of fake websites. The official website for MetaMask is https://metamask.io/

    3. MetaMask Support will never DM you. This is a common tactic scammers use to try and get access to your wallet.

    4. If you need to reach Support: open MetaMask, then menu > Support. The ‘Start a Conversation’ button will start a chat, the bot asks a few questions to help route you to the correct team. You can also visit the Support site from the web: https://Support.MetaMask.io

    5. Do not click on suspicious links or files. This can lead to your device security being compromised.

    6. Do not “sync” or “validate” your wallet with any websites or forms. This is a scam. Never sync and share: QR Codes, Secret Recovery Phrase, private key, etc.

    7. Never call phone numbers, text Whatsapp numbers, DM on Discord, use WeChat or do video chat with people on this subreddit. MetaMask does not offer customer support in this manner. There is NO exclusive MetaMask Discord.

    8. We don’t ask for an email address to create a wallet. We can’t email you. We will never ask you to verify or upgrade/merge your wallet. https://metamask.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/6286050620955-Will-MetaMask-ever-ask-me-to-verify-my-account–

    9. .MetaMask currently has no plans for an airdrop, regardless of any information you may have seen elsewhere. If you encounter anyone explaining the best method to maximize the size of a MetaMask-related ‘airdrop’ you might receive, they’re lying. In particular, be wary of scams (aimed at getting your Secret Recovery Phrase) that weaponize this topic.

  2. Don’t answer DMs – they are 100% from scammers

    People will help you here in the public thread.

  3. Also – suggest asking the question in the avatar trading, and collectable avatars subs – as you will get situation specific advice .

  4. I dont see anything wrong with this. You only have to convert to WETH if the item requires for payment (im assuming these are on the Polygon Chain).

    The only reason not to is just personal preference & if you are concerned about your info possible being stored with the third party and their security. Me for example, I have a personal Cash App, so ill use a portion of those funds + physical USD to fund my accounts. Ill buy BTC, then send to Kraken to diversify, then its either straight to Ledger, or Metamask for NFT purchases or altcoins. It is a bit much, but thats if you wanted to give yourself more security, and exposure to new projects

  5. Currency depends on chain and the specific collection.

    Some are eth on Ethereum, some are eth on polygon, some are matic on poly.

    You can choose the chain when you’re browsing collections on OS.
