    $MATIC is used to pay the transaction fee on the Polygon network (don’t worry, the fees are very nominal). You can do this by swapping certain tokens for $MATIC, or by using a faucet which gives you a small amount of $MATIC for free to get you started.
  2. Swap your assets for $DPI / $MVI
    You can use decentralized exchanges like Sushiswap, Quickswap, etc. to swap your existing tokens with $DPI or $MVI. At the time of writing, MVI-WETH pair on Sushiswap and DPI-WETH pair on Quickswap have sufficient liquidity for average-sized trades. Pro tip: Use an aggregator like Matcha or Zapper to get the best swap ratio, across various decentralized exchanges.
