How to Trade on MatrixPerp

Bridge to Polygon

To trade on MatrixPerp, you will need to provide USDC as collateral on the Polygon network. This will require you to have a wallet like MetaMask loaded with either USDC or another asset you plan to swap for USDC.

Once you have a wallet loaded with your asset of choice you’re ready to bridge to Polygon.

⚠️ Warning

Polygon bridge is our option of choice. However, this doesn’t imply endorsement. You must research and assess the risk of using any bridge before using it, just like you would any other DeFi protocol.

To do this, go to and deposit the asset you wish to bridge.

A more detailed tutorial on bridging to Polygon can be found on their user documentation at

As always, whenever you are trading on the Polygon network, you will need $MATIC to pay for gas fees. Lucky for you, gas fees on the Polygon network are cheap!

Connect Your Wallet to MatrixPerp
