Access to the DeFi ecosystem with institutional controls

In 2021, the Decentralized Finance—or DeFi—ecosystem grew by over 20x. It has attracted millions of users and many of the world’s leading organizations with yields that far outweigh those in traditional finance. For investors with heightened institutional-grade requirements however, allocating capital to DeFi is often difficult.

​​MetaMask Institutional is an institution-compliant extension of the world’s most trusted DeFi wallet, MetaMask. We provide unrivaled access to DeFi without compromising on institution-required security, operational efficiency, or compliance requirements.

The Early Adopter Program

ConsenSys is collaborating with a handful of partners, custodians, and organizations for the MetaMask Institutional Early Adopter Program. We will allow program participants to shape product features, influence the development roadmap, and gain early access to this integration for their own clients.

Ideal partners have customers already deploying capital into DeFi protocols. They will be closely engaged during the course of product development and will give feedback throughout beta testing.
