With around 507 million users across the globe, Apple Pay is becoming an increasingly popular pmethod to purchase cryptocurrency on self-custody wallets like MetaMask. However, existing onramps that offer Apple Pay require users to complete multiple steps, and be redirected to a third-party platform. Today, Banxa is pleased to share that Apple Pay one-click is available for MetaMask iPhone users worldwide.
In order to purchase crypto on MetaMask, users need to connect real-world funds to their wallets. Banxa is currently the only fiat-to-crypto onramp facilitating one-step Apple Pay transactions on MetaMask.
“This integration further deepens our relationship with Consensys and MetaMask, one of the most trusted wallets in the space that we are proud to work with,” said Holger Arians, CEO of Banxa. “Offering Apple Pay one-click directly within MetaMask marks an important step on our journey toward seamlessly embedding crypto into the user experience.”
Launched in 2016, MetaMask enables users to own both public and private keys, rather than relinquish this data to a centralized party. As the world’s leading self-custody wallet, MetaMask surpassed 30 million users worldwide in 2022.
Banxa first announced its partnership with MetaMask back in February of this year. This latest update signifies the commitment of the two companies to onboard more users to the web3 space through a seamless experience.
