So you’ve got yourself a wallet via MetaMask and minted your very own Flote Plank NFT… or are about to pull the trigger on one. Once you do, you’ll probably want to see it in all its glory. To do this you’ll need to connect your MetaMask to the Polygon Network, then head over to OpenSea.io to check it out. Below are instructions on connecting to Polyon. See this tutorial on viewing your NFTs on OpenSea.
