CoolWallet Pro Now Supports MetaMask In-App!
CoolWallet is excited to announce that we have finished integrating the world’s favorite Web3 wallet MetaMask. This means you can now enjoy the joys of enhanced cold wallet security when interacting with the world’s best DeFi DApps, protocol, and NFTs in the crypto space.
MetaMask provides access to a complete and incredibly rich blockchain ecosystem of thousands of applications and protocols and supports multiple blockchain applications. Its intuitive and ease of use (extension/app) makes MetaMask a must-have software hot wallet.
However, users are increasingly targeted by hackers and phishing schemes that aim to steal your digital assets. Therefore, it’s been a top priority for CoolWallet to provide dedicated MetaMask support for our cold wallet users.
And of course, we did! CoolWallet Pro now becomes one of the very few hardware wallets to support and integrate MetaMask, making it easy and fast for you to access Web3 applications and services with the peace of mind that cold storage security provides.
What is MetaMask?
MetaMask, globally recognized by its iconic little fox mascot, is a non-custodial cross-chain crypto wallet that supports all Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) networks, such as Binance Smart Chain (BSC), Polygon (MATIC), and more. It’s the world’s most popular Ethereum wallet and now boasts over 30 million users!
MetaMask is available as a secure browser extension and mobile app, providing users with an easy login, secure key vault, and seamless token exchange, giving you all the tools to manage your crypto assets.
It’s not only a convenient crypto wallet, but also serves as the gateway between various decentralized Web3 applications, including multiple DeFi, DApp, GameFi, and NFT platforms, allowing you to buy, sell, and transfer digital assets at the click of a button.
Which cryptcurrencies does MetaMask support?
MetaMask supports the Ethereum main chain (its original purpose), ERC-20 tokens, as well as EVM-compatible chains (e.g. BSC, Polygon, Arbitrum and Moonbeam). You can also add other chains and multiple accounts to easily enjoy the convenient and comprehensive transaction process.
MetaMask- Made for DeFi, Web 3, NFTs and the metaverse
What separates MetaMask from other hot wallets is its ability to interact with a wide variety of blockchain applications, easily connected to with only one click. Here are just a few things you can do:
- Swap your coins on Uniswap (ETH/Matic) or PancakeSwap (BSC);
- use DeFi protocols like Aave and Compound to borrow, lend, stake assets and earn yield
- raise funds on Gitcoin,
- buy, trade and mint digital collectibles on NFT marketplaces like OpenSea and Rarible (both already integrated into our CoolBitX Crypto app)
- play and earn (P2E) in the best GameFi and metaverse projects such as Sandbox, Decentraland, Gods Unchained, Axie Infinity, Sidus Heroes and more.
How to Securely Connect your CoolWallet to MetaMask
CoolWallet allows you to securely connect to MetaMask with a QR code. This new integration supports two features:
- Synchronize wallet: Import CoolWallet address to your MetaMask account to enjoy all things Ethereum on MetaMask.
- Scan and sign transaction: Sign all of your transactions from MetaMask, including buying, sending, swapping coins and NFT trading.
Why should I use a CoolWallet with MetaMask?
MetaMask offers incredible convenience and good security (passwords and biometric signing), however, it unfortunately also stores your private key and recovery seed within the wallet, which hackers and scammers can use to steal your funds if they gain access to your MetaMask extension or browser through malicious and counterfeit tools. Therefore, if you have significant funds and assets, it’s best to take the safest route. That means cold storage.
CoolWallet Pro simply uses a convenient QR code to connect to MetaMask. Your private key is stored safely in the CoolWallet device’s secure element (SE) and your recovery seed (if you set it up correctly) remains safely offline in our provided paper wallet.
CoolWallet also provides multiple layers of hardware and biometric security, such as our EAL6+ secure element, military-grade AES256 encrypted Bluetooth, and famous 2+1 factor authentication to protect your crypto assets from hackers and malware attacks and sleep peacefully at night.
