MetaMask, the most popular Web3 wallet, has added support for portfolio dApps. It also expanded its swaps feature to include two new Layer-2 networks: Arbitrum and Optimism.
MetaMask Swap Expands Supported Chains
MetaMask Swaps allow users to convert tokens from their desktop or mobile wallets while aggregating data across decentralized exchanges (DEXs) and market makers. This enables them to get the best price at the lowest market fees.
MetaMask, which previously supported Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain (BSC), Polygon, and Avalanche, will now allow users to convert their tokens from the Arbitrum and Optimism network from their desktop or mobile wallets.
In addition, MetaMask announced that users can swap tokens from MetaMask’s Portfolio Dapp, a “one-stop shop for aggregating assets across accounts, viewing multi-chain token balances and NFTs, bridging to different networks.”
MetaMask Leads the Web3 Race
MetaMask leads the race among Web3 wallets, constantly making it easy for users to access crypto. The wallet provider recently became the first Web3 wallet to integrate PayPal’s on-ramp solution and allow its users to purchase crypto.
The recent expansion is also a big win for MetaMask, as Optimism and Arbitrum rank among the most active Layer-2 networks. Following the addition of Optimism, Santiment reported that the USDT or USDC transaction volume on the chain shot up above $1 billion.
On the Flipside
- ConsenSys, the maker of MetaMask, recently unveiled a zero-knowledge Ethereum Virtual Machine network to allow users to deploy their dApps directly using tools like MetaMask, Truffle, and Infura.
Why You Should Care
MetaMask Swaps gather data from a DEX, allowing users to access a wide range of crypto and more flexibility for choosing their investments on the supported chains.
