Certain wallets require configuration to work properly with DESK. While configuration is not required for connecting your wallet on coindesk.com or to transfer tokens to your wallet, it is required to view your in-wallet balance and use your DESK throughout our ecosystem.
The first thing you need to do is switch networks from the default Ethereum mainnet blockchain to the Polygon Mainnet blockchain. You can do this by selecting the pill-shaped, “Ethereum Mainnet” button in the top navigation bar of the MetaMask wallet page. You’ll be taken to a page with a list of networks with “Polygon Mainnet” shown near the bottom of the page.
Select the blue “Add” hypertext to load a modal detailing various networks. Select the blue pill-shaped “Approve” button in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. This will load a final screen confirming that you’ve successfully added the Polygon mainnet network. Just select the blue, pill-shaped button reading “Switch Networks,” and you’re ready to move on to the final configuration needed to view DESK in your MetaMask wallet.
Once you’re on Polygon mainnet, the final thing you’ll need to do is to import the DESK token to view it in your wallet. When viewing the “Assets” tab on the MetaMask wallet page, simply scroll down to the “Import tokens” bottom and select the blue hyper-text. This will take you to a page asking you for the token contract address, symbol, and decimal.
DESK’s contract address is 0xEcfb24Be40f88D66Bb7A14a4bc7f22bDF6841a93. Copy and paste this address into the first field on the “Import tokens” page. The token symbol and decimal should automatically appear after pasting in the contract address. If not, the symbol is DESK and the decimal is 18.
Now you’re all set to use DESK!
