Today, we’re excited to announce the official launch of MetaMask Snaps and the allowlisted Tuum Technologies’ Identify Snap built for developers interested in using Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) and Verifiable Credentials (VCs) in their applications.

MetaMask Snaps Open Beta

Digital identity represents an exciting frontier in the world of decentralized technology, aligning perfectly with the vision of empowering individuals to take charge of their data. However, the absence of digital wallet identity capabilities has left the industry wrestling with unverified data and consumer application roadblocks.

Tuum Technologies, a software engineering company building decentralized technologies since early 2020 is focused on the emergence of a new groundbreaking application layer of the web, one that hungers for authenticated data, fueled by the surging demand of data extraction brought forth by artificial intelligence (AI). As this market increases in size, the role of decentralized technologies capable of issuing, verifying, and revoking credentials will be highly sought after.

Donald Bullers, CEO of Tuum Technologies, commented, “Identify Snap, our latest innovation, stands as a testament to our ongoing vision — a sophisticated plugin that can seamlessly integrate with a wide range of applications, augmenting the native capabilities of MetaMask. This powerful tool extends MetaMask’s features by introducing support for DIDs and VCs specifically on the Hedera network. Through a user-friendly API, users can easily create their own unique DID using their private key and Hedera Account ID.”

Now with the official introduction of MetaMask Snaps, developers are equipped with the essential tools to fully leverage the potential of Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI). This represents a groundbreaking enhancement for both the Hedera and MetaMask ecosystems, empowering developers with the ability to utilize advanced identity features for their applications.

“MetaMask is thrilled to welcome Tuum Technologies as one of our esteemed launch builders for MetaMask Snaps. The realm of decentralized technology is continuously advancing, and digital identity is an exhilarating frontier within it. Empowering developers with essential tools to unlock the full potential of Self-Sovereign Identity is not only crucial, but also enables individuals to reclaim control over their data,” said Christian Montoya, Senior Product Manager at MetaMask Snaps.

MetaMask Snaps is set to revolutionize the way users interact with MetaMask, the world’s leading self-custody web3 platform, offering them unprecedented control and customization. Snaps are new features and functionality, created by third-party developers, that MetaMask users worldwide can install directly into their wallet. Previously, MetaMask features were exclusively developed by MetaMask developers employed by Consensys.
