Ethereum’s most popular wallet, MetaMask, just released its mobile content. Joseph Lubin, the CEO, and founder of the New York-based ConsenSys, the creator of MetaMask announced the update via the platform’s mobile official user interface.
A standard ERC2 standard wallet, MetaMask, has now become the go-to wallet for Ether and ERC20 token users as the update facilitate the transfer of ETH and any tokens launched on the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain. A simple user interface that can handle various dApp requests.
The users of MetaMask have had asked for a mobile client years as it is amongst the main wallets for Ether users. For about two years, the platform only had browser extension format on Chrome, Firefox, and Brave. Crypto users incline towards mobile wallets mostly due to their security merit and advantages. The TEE (trusted execution environment), that is part of smartphones enables the device to store data that is almost impossible for hackers to reach.
MetaMask is a non-custodial wallet and users have full control of their funds. While users have to take responsibility for their private keys (or passwords) as storing them on a public platform or cloud can be insecure.
The new mobile client is quite similar to the existing platforms with additional functionalities. The wallet will not operate as a regular Ethereum (ETH) wallet, it will function as “Google Play Store for dApps or a dApp browser. A user could run multiple dApps on MetaMask mobile, including CryptoKitties by linking the wallet to the dApp, allowing a seamless processing of information on Ethereum mainnet.
MetaMask’s release of its Mobile Client will open a broad range of dApps to more Ethereum users, who had not previously used dApps because of the lack of accessibility.
