Ethereum remains one of the most popular cryptocurrencies on the market. The Ethereum blockchain network is also a highly dynamic platform that facilitates the creation of various dApps. Being a very valuable crypt, Ethereum needs a strong portfolio, and that's exactly what MetaMask is.
MetaMask is the most popular cryptographic portfolio intended specifically for cryptography. Since its release, the wallet has received great feedback and applause as the strongest and most secure ETH portfolio. Recent reports now indicate that the Ethereum portfolio has just reached 1.3 million downloads, and that means a lot.
MetaMask on the Chrome browser
MetaMask exists as a Chrome browser extension that serves as a link between the underlying Ethereum blockchain and the browser. Users can run dApp directly on the browser without having to access the complete network of blockchains below.
MataMask is loved for some very credible reasons. First, the portfolio is compatible with Trezor and Ledger – both are hardware portfolios. It is also easy to install and comes with a secure identity vault. The safest way to protect cryptographic resources is to keep the access keys in a separate hardware portfolio, and MetaMask makes this easier.
In addition, users can switch to "Privacy Mode" and browse the Internet without the details of the account being exposed. In fact, this "Privacy Mode" is the last update and should be operational soon. In addition to announcing the speed of record downloads, the MataMask team has also informed that a mobile version of the wallet will be available.
The future of MetaMask
MataMask has no plans to take five at any time soon. The team is planning big plans for 2019. In fact, some of the 2019 development plans are already in the pipeline. Two of the most ambitious projects planned for next year are Gnosis SAFE and Mustekala (developed by MetaMask Labs). Mustekala is specifically designed to enhance the connection of p2p clients to browsers and to reduce the dependency of MetaMask from centralized connections.
MetaMask also plans to support all Ethereum-compatible blockchain-based systems. With this, the project will help promote the adoption of Ethereum (ETH) on a global scale. In addition to these projects, MetaMask is also studying how to make the Ethereum blockchain network faster and cheaper.
How does it influence Ethereum (ETH)?
The fact that MetaMask aims to become great in the adoption of ETH means that cryptography will get more support. More support means more cases of use and demand, and ultimately a higher price and volume of exchanges. MetaMask could illuminate the future of Ethereum.
