Sending ASTR/SDN from MetaMask to Polkadot.js
In this tutorial, we explain how to transfer ASTR/SDN from MetaMask to Polkadot.js. Astar is Ethereum compatible layer1 blockchain. You are able to manage your ASTR/SDN on your MetaMask.
WARNING - WHEN YOU ARE ON EVM MODE, DO NOT SEND TOKENS FROM METAMASK TO EXCHANGES.
Connect The Portal To Metamask
- Go to the Portal.
- Connect Metamask.
- Select the desired network.
Once you are connected, you will be able to see your token balance.
Click "Transfer", paste the ASTR/SDN native Polkadot.js address and click "Confirm"
Withdraw EVM Deposit
Disconnect Metamask from the portal and connect the Polkadot.js wallet that you sent the ASTR/SDN tokens to.
You will be able to see the "EVM Deposit" balance.
Click on "Withdraw EVM Deposit" and sign the transaction on Polkadot.js. You need gas to perform this transaction. If you do not have any gas, click on "Faucet".
Your ASTR/SDN is now in your native Polkadot.js wallet.
