In the last article, we learned how to unlock access to thousands of decentralized applications (DApps). In this article, we will discover how to access to more blockchains in the app.

Your Bitcoin.com Wallet app supports multiple blockchains. It comes installed with wallets for three chains: Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Ethereum. The Bitcoin.com Team is continually expanding into other blockchains, focusing on networks with low-fee, high-speed transactions. This is important so that the DApps you use are snappy and cheap to transact.

How to Create Wallets on a New Chain in the Bitcoin.com Wallet App

To get started using other blockchains the app supports, follow the steps below:

  1. Tap the “Funds” icon at the bottom of the screen:

2. At the bottom of the page, tap the “ADD/IMPORT” button:

Press “Add new personal wallet”:

3. Under “Asset type,” you can see which blockchains the Bitcoin.com Wallet currently supports in addition to the three default blockchains:

4. Select one of the new blockchains. Let’s go with “MATIC,” a great low-fee, high-speed blockchain. Enter a descriptive wallet name. Let’s go with “My MATIC wallet.” Then press the “CREATE MATIC WALLET” button:

That’s it! You now have a Polygon (MATIC) wallet. Buy some MATIC and place it in your newly created wallet. Then you can start using Polygon’s great ecosystem of DApps.

This article is part of the Bitcoin.com Wallet Tutorials Series, which is designed to get you up to speed on the app and its features. You can access the full list of tutorials in the series here.
