MetaMask Expands DeFi Functionality For Institutional Entities

MetaMask – the world’s most popular Web3 gateway and wallet announced on 10 June that it’s expanding it’s renowned multi-chain functionality to institutional entities, by offering a new variant – MetaMask Institutional. The ConsenSys owned platform which covers Ethereum and other EVM compatible blockchains, now aims to lure institutional players, hedge funds, corporate entities into the world of decentralized finance (DeFi).

How Would It Differ From The Retail Version?

Despite the fact that MetaMask hasn’t made any screenshots available yet, it’s understandable that the newly designed interface would allow native interaction with major DApps from within. The retail version only contains the token swap feature, rumored to be the primary way to qualify for the future wallet token.

This can be taken from the website description of “We enable funds to swap tokens, borrow, lend, invest, and interact with DeFi protocols and applications using the MetaMask interface”. It would include features for enterprise grade security, multi signature support and compliance.
