ConsenSys acquires open-source crypto wallet MyCrypto, plans to merge with MetaMask

On February 1, Ethereum infrastructure developer ConsenSys announced the acquisition of the open source encrypted wallet MyCrypto, which is expected to be combined with its Ethereum wallet MetaMask to improve transaction security and usability, but the specific amount of the acquisition was not publicly disclosed. . MetaMask co-founder Dan Finlay revealed that the acquisition of MyCrypto can better help users make the best decisions in the rapidly evolving Web3 wallet environment, as MyCrypto has been one of the most reliable and compatible Ethereum wallets. Founded in 2015, MyCrypto supports Ethereum wallets through web browsers and desktops, while MetaMask focuses on supporting mobile and browser extensions. ConsenSys is expected to create an omni-channel wallet product that supports desktop, mobile and browser-based in the future. (coindesk)
