We’re building for a future where the internet and world economy empowers people through interactions based on consent, privacy, and free association. Where both communities and individuals flourish. To accomplish that, we’re working hard to make web3 accessible for everyone.
MetaMask is both a crypto wallet and a gateway to the decentralized web. Our tools help people create communities, play video games, access financial services, make payments, invest in assets, protect against economic turmoil, and more. Our browser extension and mobile platforms meet the needs of millions of users and developers across the world.
Originally a humble key manager, today MetaMask serves over 30 million monthly active users as a decentralized application development platform, an aggregator of decentralized cryptocurrency exchanges, and a decentralized identity manager.
About the Team
The most fundamental role that MetaMask plays for 30+ million users is to help them manage their private keys and take action with those keys. Our first and most well known strategy for this is the Secret Recovery Phrase (aka the “seed phrase”). MetaMask stores the users SRP on their machine, and from it deterministically generates private keys and accounts.
Our next innovation in this area was integration with hardware wallets. By storing their SRP on external hardware design for this purpose, users are able to be more secure than their machine while enjoying the convenience and UX of MetaMask.
Over the past six months, we have expanded the number of hardware wallets we integrate with and have fixed some long standing pain points in hardware wallet UX. However, the development of account and key management solutions at MetaMask is just getting started.
While our roadmap is always evolving, here are some of the areas of improvement and innovation that this team will bring to MetaMask:
