MetaMask has announced that it is joining forces with the MyCrypto team. While no user experience changes are anticipated in the very near term, long-term goals are in the works.
Pushing Wallets to Greater Heights
MetaMask, one of the world’s most popular wallet apps, has announced that it will partner with MyCrypto, a Web3 solution for unifying Ethereum accounts into a single point of access. The announcement was made on MyCrypto’s blog earlier today and later shared by MetaMask in a tweet.
The post describes MyCrypto’s technology as a product that enables interaction “across chains and cities, impacting the balances of wallets, liquidity pools, treasuries, and ultimately the emotional and financial well-being of any number of humans around the globe.” In essence, MyCrypto is designed to serve as a single point of access for all of a user’s Ethereum accounts, wallets, and holdings across the entire ecosystem.
The cooperation aims to bring two separate teams together to create a solid, unified team. In the short term, no changes to user experience are expected: there are no known plans to rebrand or merge Githubs, for example.
Instead, the focus is on further developing features that the community has actively requested, such as developing anti-phishing features, building an in-house marketing and community relations team, and focusing on other requested developments, such as improvements in UX, network handling, and error messages.
The MyCrypto team notes the importance of balancing security, usability, beauty, and education as part of building a perfect wallet that can be used across multiple networks.
In the long term, the team writes that it aims to develop “a superior way to access unique applications across multiple accounts, protocols, and networks” across desktop, mobile, web, and extension applications.
