Bigger, Better MetaMask

The MetaMask hot wallet has reached a major milestone as the number of monthly users engaging with the in-browser tool hit 21 million. The success caused comparisons to the other 21 million figure in crypto - the total number of bitcoins that will ever exist.

Now that MetaMask has surpassed the 21M threshold, its future looks increasingly bright. 

“There are now more MetaMask users than there ever will be Bitcoin,” tweeted MetaMask on Wednesday. “Thank you for trusting us to help you access and navigate Web3.” In a promise of bigger things to come the company went on to add, “This is only the beginning.”

The latest success metrics will surely benefit MetaMask’s parent company, Consensys, which is now seeking to raise further funding at a $3 billion valuation. This follows a raise of $65 million in April when JP Morgan, Mastercard, and a number of other firms invested in the project.
