The number of decentralized applications (dApps) is growing every day. The frequent increase in users of dApps has incentivized developers to create solutions that allow web applications to communicate easier with blockchains. One one example of this - and the topic of this article - is MetaMask. MetaMask is an add-on or an extension for several web browsers such as Google Chrome, Edge, and Firefox. The function of MetaMask is to make it easier for web applications to connect with the Ethereum blockchain. Moreover, MetaMask is an easy way to set up an Ethereum-based cryptocurrency wallet, such as for ERC-20 tokens, simply by using the MetaMask browser extension.
