Connecting a Polygon Wallet

Wallet requirements

Before you can start registering your gateways and earn rewards you will need to setup your wallet. With this wallet you will manage your gateways and receive earned rewards. You will require a wallet that:

  • support the Polygon (MATIC) network
  • supports ERC-20 tokens and contract interactions
  • contains Polygon MATICs to pay for transaction fees

Prepare wallet


ThingsIX is build on the Polygon blockchain. Polygon uses the MATIC token to pay for transaction fees. MATICs can be bought and obtained through various exchanges.

Please make sure you select the Polygon network when withdrawing MATICs.


Next step is to obtain THIX tokens. You can either retrieve this by claiming rewards (if you received any) or by exchanging them via a exchange.

Connecting wallet

To be able to interact with the smart-contracts of the ThingsIX network you will need a Polygon Wallet. Because of Web3 standards that are used by ThingsIX and the ThingsIX web-app, a lot of wallets are supported.

To start connecting your wallet, click the Connect a wallet button in the top-right corner:

You will be taken to the selected wallet and have to follow the wallet specific options. Please note that some wallets don't "pop-up" and you have to open them manually (also while doing transactions).

The dashboard currently supports Metamask, Coinbase Wallet App and any wallet that can be connected with WalletConnect and satisfies the above stated requirements.
