How to create Polygon wallet

Polygon (MATIC) is a platform for Ethereum scaling and infrastructure development, based on the Polygon SDK. It allows developers to create various types of applications, transforming Ethereum into a multi-chain system like Polkadot, Cosmos, and Avalanche. Polygon will continue to develop core technology to scale to a larger ecosystem, while the MATIC token will continue to play a crucial role in governance.
