A public key is a unique identifier associated with your wallet, also referred to as the wallet address. It is the address used to receive funds into your wallet and it is safe to share.

Polygon addresses also start with 0x since the network is EVM-compatible, hence be mindful which network you’re using since gas fees are much higher on the Ethereum mainnet.
