Some of the key features of Metamask are:

  1. Support for multiple cryptocurrency networks, including popular networks like BSC, Polygon, Fantom, and many others.
  2. Non-custodial wallet, meaning that developers do not have access to your funds, as private keys, addresses, and passwords are only stored on your device.
  3. Support for mobile devices (Android, iOS) and browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Brave Browser, and Edge).
  4. No additional fees charged by the wallet to users, and no limits on the size of transfers. The fee charged depends only on the network used.
  5. Support for the EIP-1559 protocol, which allows for reduced transaction costs by using a liquidity aggregator and building the most efficient route for transactions.
