Bridge Migration Instructions

As previously announced, Permission will be migrating ASK from our legacy blockchain to the Polygon Network. This is a one-way bridge for ASK holders to migrate their tokens to Polygon so that they may take full advantage of our upgraded infrastructure.

But before you begin, Permission users should navigate to their wallet and check their wallet balance. If your wallet balance is empty, then you don’t need to worry. Your pending ASK can safely stay where it is for as long as you want and will be able to be withdrawn directly onto the Polygon Network after the migration.

If you have ASK in your wallet balance, Permission suggests you migrate it over to the Polygon network. We cannot migrate your ASK for you, so you must do it yourself.

To get started using the ASK Bridge to the Polygon Network, first ensure that you have a MetaMask wallet – and download one if you don’t have it already – as it is necessary to use the bridge. Then, identify what kind of wallet you keep your ASK in and follow the associated instructions:

If your ASK is in a Permission wallet

This option is for Permission users who keep their ASK in their Permission wallet, which is accessible via their Permission account.

To begin:

  1. Login to your Permission account. 
  2. Navigate to the ASK Bridge, review the instructions provided, and click ‘Get Started.’ (Mobile users need to input the URL into the browser in MetaMask)
  3. Select the ‘Continue’ button underneath the ‘Permission Wallet’ section. 
  4. Click the ‘Add legacy Permission Network’ button and confirm in MetaMask, then continue by selecting ‘Next.’
  5. Next, click the ‘Get Private Key’ button, which will direct you back to your Permission settings. In your Permission account settings, enter your password to reveal your private key. Select ‘next’ on the bridge when done. 
  6. Then, import your private key into MetaMask. To do this, in MetaMask, click the account circle icon in the top right and select ‘Import Account.’ Then, copy and paste your private key into MetaMask and select ‘Import.’ Select ‘next’ on the bridge when done. 
  7. Now, connect your wallet to the bridge using the MetaMask button provided. Then, confirm again in MetaMask

If your ASK is in any other wallet

This option is for ASK holders who do not have a Permission account, or Permission users who have transferred their ASK to an outside wallet.

To begin:

  1. Navigate to the ASK Bridge, review the instructions provided, and click ‘Get Started.’ (Mobile users need to input the URL into the browser in MetaMask)
  2. Select the ‘Continue’ button underneath the ‘Any Other Wallet’ section. 
  3. (If you are using a hardware wallet, connect your hardware wallet to MetaMask at this time.)
  4. Connect your wallet to the bridge using the MetaMask button provided. Then, confirm again in MetaMask

Once your wallet is successfully connected to the ASK Bridge 

  1. Select the amount of ASK from your wallet that you would like to permanently transfer from the legacy Permission network to the Polygon network, then click ‘Review’ to continue. 
  2. Review the details on the page, including the amount of ASK and your wallet address, then click “Transfer.”
  3. You will be directed to a page that reflects the status of your transfer request. 
  4. Now, hit the ‘Add ASK token To Polygon’ button and confirm in MetaMask. Then, click the “Add ASK” button to add the ASK token slot to your MetaMask.

If you have yet to transfer your ASK over because you can’t see it in your MetaMask:

  • Make sure you have added the legacy Permission Network and ASK token to your MetaMask wallet.

If you have transferred your ASK, but still don’t see it in your MetaMask:

  • Transfers may take up to 24 hours to complete.
  • Make sure you have added the Polygon Network.
  • Make sure you have added the ASK token placeholder to your MetaMask wallet.
