Due to numerous questions from the Skill Guilds users, we decided to create a guide dedicated to the process of adding the Polygon chain to your Metamask wallet. Since this step is essential for tapping into various play-to-earn projects and purchasing NFTs for them, make sure to get acquainted with the algorithm.
