Ethereum co-founder and ConsenSys CEO Joseph Lubin has acknowledged the possibility of issuing a $ MASK token and distributing it among users of the MetaMask wallet.

The most popular Ethereum wallet MetaMask may have its own token. This was announced on Twitter by Joseph Lubin, founder of the company ConsenSys, behind the development of the wallet.

Twitter user @icebergy jokedthat after the launch of the independent browser extension for its wallet by the Coinbase exchange, MetaMask will have to distribute tokens. In response, Coindesk journalist Andrew Thurman statedthat this is impossible, since JPMorgan owns a stake in MetaMask and will be against such a decision.

“Andrew, ConsenSys has thousands of different tokens on its balance sheet. The company is run by its own staff, myself included, and we are all in favor of decentralizing some of our projects. When will the $ MASK token appear? Follow the news!”, – wrote Любин.

Interestingly, it was stated earlier in the General Information section of the MetaMask extension that the wallet is being developed in California. Now it is reported that the application is being created by developers around the world.

Recall that in the spring of this year, the number of active users of the MetaMask wallet exceeded 5 million, and in September the company announced that it had crossed the 10 million mark. In addition, the application has become the standard when using DeFi and Web 3.0 projects.
