Web3 Metamask Benefits

Web3 MetaMask benefits with the launch of the integration of Matrixport’s Cactus Custody Custodian Services. This secure DeFi connector will be available in countries like Europe and Asia.

New DeFi Connector

  • With its new “DeFi Connector” feature, Matrixport is expanding into institutional products.
  • Matrixport’s institutional custodian service, Cactus Custody, will integrate with MetaMask Institutional.

MetaMask’s institutional arm now provides built-in multichain compatibility as part of its custodial solution.

Crypto financial services company Matrixport’s institutional custodian, Cactus Custody, supports a slew of Ethereum-based chains via its “Decentralized Finance Connector.”

MMI Clients

Clients of MetaMask Institutional (MMI) can now access the same multi-chain connectivity across all Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) chains that MetaMask provides retail traders. Compatible chains include Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, Polygon and Avalanche.

The offering delivers “the highest level of security and usability” to institutional investors “seeking to tap into the vast opportunities within DeFi,” according to Cynthia Wu, head of sales and business development at Matrixport.

“We are fully committed towards enabling multi-chain capabilities that provide even broader access to DeFi, whilst adhering to world-class standards of security and compliance,” Wu said in a statement.

MMI, MetaMask’s institutional-grade service, offers additional security and compliance services institutional clients require, MetaMask said.

“EVM chain support is one of the most important institutional needs,” said Johann Bornman, product lead for MMI, in a statement. “With our latest custodial account multichain feature, Cactus Custody not only supports multiple EVM chains, but also allows institutions to freely bridge digital assets across these networks.”

According to DeFi research platform VALK, 43% of institutional investors engaging with DeFi currently use a custodian service. Institutional infrastructure for DeFi is lagging, researchers said.

Crypto DeFi Investors

“Investors questioned in the UK, US, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, and Brazil would welcome the launch of an institutional aggregator for DeFi as long as it met regulatory and security requirements,” VALK said. “Around a fifth (22%) would be very likely to use it while 72% say they would be quite likely to use it.”

Due to varying regulatory requirements, Matrixport is currently unavailable in over 40 countries, including the United States and Canada.
