Metamask noted that with its “Sell” and its “Buy” features, users will be able to have a “more self-sufficient web3 experience” with fewer intermediaries and faster fiat conversion directly to their preferred destination.

In addition, the firm stated that it supports a variety of providers to ensure that users have different real-time options for converting their ETH on the Ethereum Mainnet to fiat currency.

The Sell feature is currently available in the United States (state restrictions apply), the United Kingdom, and parts of Europe. MetaMask expressed its intention to further expand globally.

“Ensuring a way for users to enter and exit crypto freely is important and we hope these options make web3 attainable to more people. We’re initially supporting ETH on Ethereum Mainnet, with plans to expand to native gas tokens on layer 2 networks soon and fiat currency USD, EUR, and GBP.”

Other Metamask Portfolio Features

Swap

Launched in late 2020, MetaMask Swap allows users to exchange tokens directly from their desktop or mobile wallet by combining data from decentralized exchange aggregators, market makers, and decentralized exchanges. This allows users to get the lowest network fees.

Early this year, MetaMask Swap observed an increase in token swap volumes, which was likely affected by the ongoing collapses of U.S. fiat banks Silvergate Capital and Silicon Valley Bank. This surge, which lasted for about six days from March 9 to 14, brought about a 145.78% increase in token swap volumes over the previous seven weeks, according to DappRadar.

It has integrated bridge aggregators such as Socket and LI.FI, offering vetted bridge providers for added security.

It is accessible to users via the MetaMask Browser Extension or the MetaMask mobile in-app browser.
