New user here so I’m likely the cause of my issue.
Last night, in an attempt to buy an NFT on Polygon, I was prompted to swap ETH to Polygon, so I accepted the swap. My ETH balance was debited, and after the Polygon network was visible, my MATIC balance remains at zero.
I’ve looked at possible solutions, i.e. adding the MATIC token to my ETH Mainnet, but it still showed up as zero. I tried swapping the Polygon back to my ETH using a bridge, as the Polygon is showing in my Opensea wallet and on the bridge site, but for whatever reason, there is no balance in MM.
I’m surely doing something wrong, but am learning.
If someone can help me find out how to have my MATIC balance reflect the transaction, I would love to be able to bridge back to ETH as I no longer want the NFT as I believe it to be a fake - which I fear may be my issue.
In the hash below, I see that this looks to have swapped into WETH. Again, my noobiness isn’t allowing to me to see the issue here, but it does say that the swap carries with it zero MATIC value. That’s concerning.
Sorry, also wanted to add, using the bridge just carries your ETH over from ethereum mainnet to polygon network, you’d still have to swap your WETH for MATIC if you wanted it. Since you don’t, you can bridge that WETH back to ETH on Ehtereum Mainnet. You may be new, but you knew that bridging was a key - so that’s awesome!
Thank you so much for the info and the time you spent…
I’ve added the WETH token to my ETH Mainnet, but nothing showed up. What you’re saying is that I need to add the my WETH’s Custom Token Address in order to retrieve the asset? Sorry again for being so new
I tried adding Polygon to my Polygon Mainnet, but it said that it wasn’t supported. When I did the same with WETH, it added the token and I new see my .05 WETH there. Hoping that isn’t an issue with bridging back…
Thanks for your help. I’ve bridged back the WETH back to ETH last night, and it seems to have been debited from my Polygon, but is not in my ETH yet. Can you see where it ended up? The Tx info seems correct, but I may be missing something. Thank you.
Ok, thank you. So based on the Tx Hash that I attached in my previous message, the transaction was done correctly and I should see the asset added back to my ETH balance on Ethereum Mainnet, but possibly in a few days?
Thanks. But it shows that my transaction was done correctly? Sorry for all the questions, but I understand that it is very easy to make a mistake in these processes. I’m just trying to establish that I’ve done the transaction correctly.
