Metamask Hits Over 10 Million Monthly Active Users
There’s no doubt that Metamask has been a popular Ethereum blockchain wallet that is also compatible with technologies like Polygon, Optimism, and Arbitrum. The wallet was created by the blockchain software company Consensys in 2016 and a great number of decentralized finance (defi) applications support Metamask.
In a Tuesday announcement, Metamask says that in July 2020 the platform saw 545,080 MAUs and by April 2021, Metamask had 3 million MAUs. Today, Metamask has 10,354,279 MAUs and has grown 1,800% since July 2020.
In the announcement, Metamask described some of the drivers that pushed the software’s MAU growth exponentially. For one, Metamask is considered the “primary way” global defi users interact with 17,000 unique Web3 domains. Metamask is also used to access the growing phenomenon of non-fungible token (NFT) assets that have taken the world by storm.
Two other things accelerated Metamask growth and one of them was the token swap feature. Alongside this, the Metamask mobile software gave the blockchain wallet an extra push in September 2020. Metamask’s growth announcement details:
The launch of the mobile version in September 2020 has played a crucial role in rapidly bringing new users from global markets such as the Philippines, Vietnam, China, India, Indonesia, Thailand, and Brazil.
