Calling all Meta Toy City Adventurer! Get ready for a grand migration! The beloved play-to-earn game is setting its sights on a new home: the Immutable Network. This exciting shift promises a smoother experience with faster transactions and lower fees.

But with a new network comes a new currency — the IMX token. This essential token will be your key to unlocking the wonders of Meta Toy City on Immutable Network, including buying the Genesis HeroZ.

As seasoned Polygon Network (MATIC) users, we know navigating a new blockchain might seem daunting. Fear not, Adventurers! This comprehensive guide will walk you through every step of buying IMX tokens, ensuring a seamless transition for your Meta Toy City adventures.

To access or create your Passport account and wallet

  • Use Google, Apple, or email for account creation. It is recommended to use the email registered with Meta Toy City.
  • After signing up or logging in, you’ll arrive at the wallet dashboard where you can view your crypto funds and wallet address in the upper right corner.

Swap your MATIC into USDC by using Uniswap

  • Make sure the Network is Polygon, then choose MATIC — USDC pair. Input the amount you want and confirm the transaction.

Bridge using Layerswap in Immutable Toolkit

Pro tip: Turn on “Refuel”. This will give you some IMX to pay for gas on Immutable zkEVM. Without it, you may need to bridge more funds to pay for gas!

  • Select ‘Swap now’ then connect your Metamask Wallet and initiate the transfer.

Swap using Quickswap in Immutable Toolkit

  • Select the USDC — IMX pair and input the amount you want and confirm the swap.

Bridging and swapping crypto tokens involve inherent risks, and the tools mentioned are simply those I find trustworthy based on my own research. Do Your Own Research (DYOR) before making any investment decisions.
