Globally popular web3 digital wallet MetaMask introduces a new update packed with NFT features. With version 10.28, users can now enjoy a dedicated NFT tab that simplifies viewing and transferring these unique tokens. The update not only improves the overall user experience but also levels the playing field with newer wallets and mobile competitors. So what are the new MetaMask features?
New NFT Features in MetaMask 10.28: All You Need to Know
Below are some of the latest features in MetaMask version 10.28:
- Dedicated NFT tab: Users easily view and manage their NFTs within the wallet.
- Simplified Sending (ERC-721 NFTs): Users can transfer ERC-721 NFTs without relying on external platforms or smart contracts.
- NFT Auto-Detection: This feature will display all ERC-721 and ERC-1155 tokens in the wallet when enabled.
- Support for ERC-1155 Transfers: MetaMask plans to introduce the ability to send ERC-1155 tokens soon.
The new features are a game-changer for NFT holders and traders. Previously, users had to rely on platforms like OpenSea or interact with smart contracts to transfer their NFTs. This exposes them to potential risks and scammers. The new update eliminates these concerns, making it possible to send NFTs directly to a ledger or friends from within the MetaMask browser extension.
MetaMask also plans to enable users to send ERC-1155 tokens within the extension soon. This update further bolsters the wallet’s utility for NFT enthusiasts. Users who do not have auto-updates enabled should manually update their MetaMask extension to access the new features. To do this, simply visit your browser’s extension settings and follow the prompts to update MetaMask to version 10.28.
MetaMask’s browser extension update marks a significant milestone in the wallet’s evolution. By simplifying the process of managing and transferring NFTs, the wallet is positioning itself as a go-to solution for NFT collectors and enthusiasts. The enhanced user experience also helps MetaMask stay competitive with newer wallets and mobile alternatives like Rainbow. As the NFT ecosystem continues to grow and evolve, users can expect further improvements and innovations from MetaMask and other web3 wallet providers.
