How to join ValuesDAO and begin staking?
So, you would like to join the ValuesDAO revolution and increase your crypto holdings?
Set up MetaMask wallet in your computer or smartphone (we recommend Metamask in your computer for smoothest experience).
ValuesDAO runs on the Polygon Network. Polygon Network is the second layer of Ethereum Blockchain and is scalable solution supporting a multi-chain Ethereum ecosystem. It's fast, secure, and has low transaction fees.
** If you happen to face any issues and Polygon is not automatically added to your wallet, Add the Network Manually:
1. VALUES Token Address:
2. sVALUES Token Address:
3. DAI Token Address:
Copy and paste the ValuesDAO access link (URL) from current ValuesDAO member or community into your mobile phone (Chrome or Safari for iOS, Chrome for Android) or computer browser (any Metamask compatible browser such as Chrome or Brave) and click Enter Key to start the ValuesDAO app.
Then, click "Connect Wallet" button. Metamask will open automatically (please wait patiently).
Once Metamask is open, click on the "Connect" button (your metamask pop-up window may look a little different but just confirm you are connecting to ValuesDAO app and then click "Connect" and "Confirm" if there is a confirm button.
Once connected successfully, you will see your metamask address in the upper right of ValuesDAO app.
- If metamask tells you that you do not have enough MATIC for the transaction Gas, go to Step 6. to see how to buy some MATIC.
- MATIC - Polygon Network native token is used to pay fees for transactions. Make sure to always have a few MATIC in your wallet ;)
- DAI - Dai is the native stablecoin for the Maker protocol. It is the world’s first crypto-collateralized and decentralized stablecoin, whose value is soft pegged to the US Dollar. The collateralized assets backing Dai are other cryptocurrencies instead of fiat and are held within smart contracts rather than in institutions.
Once you have MATIC in your wallet, the easiest way is to swap MATIC to DAI within the Values Application
Currently you have several choices to get started:
Staking: (You must use DAI token to purchase Values token in order to do straight staking - see below)
