Follow this guide to learn how to mint a Wide Awake NFT. Complete each step, and once you have completed each step move to the next step below.
Getting set up for your first transaction on the blockchain is the biggest barrier to entry in crypto and I will walk you through the process. Once you are set up, all future transactions will be very easy!
MetaMask is extremely user friendly! This is your wallet that will allow you to connect to websites and applications. It takes about 10 minutes to create a MetaMask wallet. They walk you through the process and you can create your MetaMask wallet here: https://metamask.io
Next, you will need to purchase ETH. You can purchase Ethereum on Coinbase, Gemini, or Crypto.com. Make sure to purchase a little more than you need to buy your Wide Awake NFT to cover transaction fees.
Once you have Ethereum purchased send it to your MetaMask wallet address from the website you purchased your Ethereum. Your MetaMask wallet address is found here in the MetaMask wallet extension.
Polygon and Ethereum are two different networks. Tokens on the Ethereum Network will not work on the Polygon Network. This means we have to move our ETH to Polygon so that we can use the Polygon Network!
Use this website to transfer your ETH on the Ethereum Network to WETH on the Polygon Network: https://bridge.umbria.network/bridge/ethereum-polygon/eth
Input the amount of ETH you want to transfer to Polygon and click “Unlock Wallet” to connect your wallet. Then click “Send (MetaMask)” once you have your wallet connected.
Wait until both of these purple checks show up and make sure you don’t close out of the browser. Last step! If it says “Connect to Polygon Network” make sure to click this to add the Polygon Network to your MetaMask. It might name your Polygon Network “Matic”. Polygon and Matic are the same thing since Polygon recently changed it’s name from Matic to Polygon.
You either have WETH on Polygon already or you now have WETH in your wallet on Polygon after following the previous steps!
You will need a very small amount of MATIC (pennies worth) to make a transaction on the Polygon blockchain. Message Friz if you don’t already have MATIC and he will send you MATIC so you can make transactions so that you don’t need to set this up.

Sign the transaction in MetaMask and wait for it to complete.
Congrats, you have successfully minted a Wide Awake NFT!
