Metamask is a popular and established browser extension which functions as a cryptocurrency wallet that connects to the Ethereum blockchain. MetaMask allows users to interact with the Ethereum ecosystem, which hosts a vast universe of decentralized applications (Dapps), without having to download the entire blockchain on their device. As such, it's one of the best Ethereum wallet for easy access to Web 3.0: decentralized exchanges (DEX), games with decentralized and scarce items such as Sorare.


The wallet is compatible with the most widely adopted browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Brave and Microsoft Edge. Apart from storing Ethereum’s native currency, ETH, MetaMask also holds tokens that are built on the protocol’s ERC-20 and ERC-721 standards (the ERC-721 is the standard on which Sorare is built).
