MetaMask have begun open beta testing of their Snaps protocol, which expands their non-custodial wallet application beyond EVM networks.
This has enabled the setup of cross-chain bridges between a number of blockchains such as Bitcoin, Solana, Avalanche and StarkNet.
34 Snaps applications, including internetworking protocols, internal chats and additional security layers, were launched during the initial testing phase.
Third-party teams have an opportunity to seamlessly upload utilities to the platform, and MetaMask does not impose any charges for this purpose.
According to Christian Montoya, Chief Product Officer, “unfettered innovation is the cornerstone of a decentralized system – no middlemen.”
