In the world of crypto community, MetaMask is mostly used to communicate with the Ethereum blockchain. It’s basically a cryptocurrency wallet in the form of a browser extension or mobile application which interacts with Ethereum dApps (decentralized applications) and Smart Contracts by preserving your Ethereum and other ERC-20 Tokens.

MetaMask is one of such popular and secure dApp browsers that can be installed in your browser. Metamask is supported by all major browsers like Chrome, Opera, Firefox etc. It offers multiple services, like archiving cryptocurrencies like ETH, ERC-20 tokens like UNI and even NFTs that you can trade on opensea. Swapping between tokens within the application itself is also serviceable by MetaMask.
