DeSo, a blockchain that has the support of Sequoia, Coinbase, and Andreessen Horowitz, has confirmed its connection with MetaMask.
As a result, a whole set of Twitter-like features are now available to millions of Ethereum users with just one click.
By integrating DeSo with the top web3 wallet, MetaMask is essentially transformed into a complete decentralized social network. Additionally, it paves the path for DeSo to replace Web3’s existing cross-chain social layer.
Nader Al-Naji, the founder of DeSo, stated: “Established blockchains cannot store material effectively. On Ethereum, storing a 200-character Tweet costs almost $50, but doing it on Avalanche, Solana, or Polygon only costs about fifteen cents.”

DeSo, on the other hand, costs a tenth of a cent, making it the first blockchain that can challenge storage-intensive services like social.
Users of MetaMask will have access to many features, including completely decentralized on-chain follow graphs, gas-free profile creation, publishing, and following other users.
Due to the integration, someone using Uniswap may send an encrypted file to someone using Compound via MetaMask, and that person would receive it via DeSo.
Similar to this, a user on OpenSea can react to an NFT and have it show up on other sites where the NFT is posted, such Rarible or SupeRare.
Even if one user is using the Polygon network and the other is using Ethereum, this system still functions.
Currently, a few number of private firms dominate social media, but this may change if wallets like MetaMask expand from merely handling money to social identities and social interactions.
The platform intends to integrate with Phantom wallet in order to next extend to Solana after becoming established in the Ethereum ecosystem.
DeSo is the only layer-1 blockchain created specifically for the development and scaling of decentralized social media platforms to 1 billion members. A16z, Sequoia, Coinbase Ventures, Winklevoss Capital, and Alex Ohanian are notable DeSo investors.
