MetaMask Hits 1 Million Downloads – A Major Milestone For Web 3.0

MetaMask Hits 1 Million Downloads – A Major Milestone For Web 3.0

Web 3.0, a.k.a. the blockchain-connected distributed web, is coming sooner than you think.

MetaMask is a bridge that allows you to visit the distributed web of tomorrow in your browser today.

The popular Ethereum wallet and Chrome browser extension, MetaMask, surpassed 1 million downloads yesterday.

MetaMask allows anyone to run Ethereum dApps (decentralized applications) directly in the browser without running a full Ethereum node.

MetaMask includes a secure identity vault, providing a user interface to manage your identities on different sites and sign blockchain transactions.

More and more people are trying out alpha dApps and websites that are linked to the blockchain.

Connected to the Blockchain

ConsenSys is a global formation of technologists and entrepreneurs building the infrastructure, applications, and practices that enable a decentralized world.

Of course, all programs that run on the blockchain need access to the blockchain. MetaMask acts as a bridge between a traditional web browser and the Ethereum blockchain so that any actions taken on a website, such as trading tokens on EtherDelta, are automatically recorded on the blockchain through smart contracts.

Interconnectivity between the internet and blockchain will be an essential part of the future web.

Backed by both Ethereum Dev Grants and ConsenSys, MetaMask has major support from the Ethereum community. One million downloads show how much the crypto community has embraced MetaMask.
