Can I use an existing Polygon wallet?
If you have an existing Polygon wallet, you can choose to use that for your NORI. Or you may prefer to create a separate wallet if you want to keep your NORI cryptocurrency in its own account. You can use NORI in any Polygon wallet you choose.
Can I use an existing non-Polygon wallet?
No, you must use or establish a Polygon wallet for NORI. For example, if you have an existing Bitcoin wallet, you cannot use that for NORI.
Is my Polygon wallet address the same as my Ethereum wallet address?
Your Ethereum and Polygon addresses may be the same, because NORI and Polygon are Ethereum-based, but it’s not the same account and your balances are not the same on Polygon as on Ethereum. It’s your responsibility to set up your wallet to work with Polygon for using NORI.
How do I find my Polygon wallet address?
Once you have set up a Polygon wallet, you can find and share your address in order to receive NORI or other cryptocurrency on Polygon. A wallet address is a string starting with “0x” followed by 40 more numbers and letters. It is the same format as an Ethereum wallet address.
The exact steps to get your address will depend on which wallet you chose, and you should follow the guides closely. See the resources above for MetaMask and Ledger.
