The long-awaited new version of Metamask was released on Beta phase today. The popular Ethereum (ETH) dapp browser has just decided to unveil its mobile app to the world this week.
This new version is set to bring all the functionalities that you can use on your desktop computer to Android and iOS mobile devices. According to the creators, the product can be used together with all the plug-ins released so far.
A blog post that was created for the launch affirms that the Beta testing phase will be mainly used in order to gather some feedback about user experience and potential bugs before the v.1 is launched later in 2019.
The goal of Metamask Mobile will be to be more than “just another wallet”, according to the blog post. The idea is to create a real bridge that will let people easily access the decentralized web and use browsers now on their phones, so they can access it from anywhere in the world.
This new mobile app will have its own crypto wallet in which users will be able to store non-fungible tokens (think about Crypto Kitties if you want to know what they are) for collectibles based on the Ethereum technology.
Metamask’s desktop app version currently has over 250,000 users, so there is a pretty good chance that the product will reach a pretty big market. The mobile app was officially announced at the end of last year, so people are waiting for it for a long time. Earlier this year, the company had at least 1.1 million transactions in a single month, most of them happening on the ETH blockchain.
Even though fewer people are interested in dapps these days when compared to 2017 when they started to blossom, Metamask retained a considerably big portion of its users and will possibly get even more users now that the new app is set to be launched.
