A previous report made it known that MetaMask the most popular Ether (ETH) wallet has launched its mobile client. In light of this, a new report has made it known that its user base has reached a total of 1.3 million users. Considering the fact that Ethereum is the second most popular blockchain project which recently got endorsed by the JP Morgan bank this is expected.
MetaMask has Community Support
Since launching, MetaMask has received great feedback from the crypto community. This can be traced to its user-friendly nature as well as its secure nature. The wallet is a product of ConsenSys—a global organism building the infrastructure, applications, and practices that enable a decentralized world.
Before launching the mobile clients of the Ethereum wallet, MetaMask can only be accessed through a mobile extension. The extension acts as the link between the underlying Ethereum blockchain and the browser. Users can run dApps right on the browser without having to access the full blockchain network beneath it.
MetatMask has New Features
MetatMask as recently included some key feature to the wallet. One of these features is that the wallet is now compatible with the two most popular hardware wallets—Trezor and Ledger. Since the safest way to keep a crypto asset secure is to keep the access keys in a separate hardware wallet, the integration of MetaMask with this popular hardware wallet makes that possible.
Another key security measure put in place by the wallet is the “Privacy Mode”. This allows for the wallet users to browse the internet without their account details being exposed. This mode is however still not yet fully operational.
MetaMask has managed to make itself the number one wallet for ETH, as a result of this, the team behind the wallet has also made it known that they are working on various projected targeted at making the Ethereum network fast and adoption ready.
With the demand for wallet also growing the number of Ethereum users are also expected to increase significantly along with a higher price and trading volume.
