WalletConnect vs MetaMask, which is more compatible?

A crypto wallet should be beginner-friendly, easy to use, and store assets in top-notch security.

Also, the next important thing is that the transfers of crypto or NFTs should be secure. But finding a good crypto wallet is challenging. Though every available software wallet claims that they are the best but in reality they are not.

In this blog, we will help you evaluate the two most popular wallets that are MetaMask Wallet and WalletConnect. 

Introduction of WalletConnect

This Wallet gives a strong and secure connection between dApps and other mobile cryptocurrency wallets. This wallet was introduced in the year 2018 and its developer is Richard Burton WalletConnect

What is MetaMask Wallet?

It is a non-custodial wallet that gives users easy access to their accounts. Also, this wallet supports all the ERC- 20 tokens which gives the traders a variety of options to choose from. As of now in total there are 670,000 ERC-20 tokens, so now you can guess the limit. 

Comparison of the Wallets

  • On the basis of Features

Although MetaMask offers a bundle of features it is still not able to provide a secure connection for NEFT transfers. WalletConnect also has some attractive features in its own way.

On MetaMask users are not required to provide their personal information on it and NFTs can be stored and then could be connected with several marketplaces. The same is with WalletConnect because users can execute NFT trade on any of the blockchain networks available.

  • Integrity with Third Party

MetaMask allows third-party integration with almost 440 platforms such as Droidex, APWine, OpenSea, Ethereum, FURY COMBO, etc. 

WalletConnect also allows third-party integration but its list is not as long as MetaMask. It only supports 259 platforms that could be connected.

  • Fees and Cost

Both wallets work to provide the best experience to the users and give most of the services for free. However, on MetaMask you have to keep in mind that for some of the transactions it charges Ethereum gas fees which can prove to be a little costlier. But since WalletConnect does not work on the blockchain so there is no need to pay any kind of fee for this wallet.

  • Customer Care

MetaMask has a better support service in comparison to the other wallets. Users can get solutions for the issues faced by them through many of the methods available. For instance, through a ticket system, email, live chat, or even through the blogs posted. 

The users of WalletConnect cannot contact their customer services in any way because this wallet just has a discord channel for communication purposes and nothing else.

Wrapping it up

With this, we have come on to the end of our comparison of the two wallets (WalletConnect and MetaMask). To sum all this up we will recommend that selecting a wallet depends upon the type of transactions you want to execute. So it is completely up to the choice of the trader, but we hope that this blog helped you to come up with a decision.
