On Sept. 28, the developer of the popular Web 3 wallet, ConsenSys, announced it was launching a beta portfolio viewer for users to aggregate their assets across multiple accounts and networks.
The Ethereum software solutions firm added that the new product was in response to customer requests for a portfolio dapp. It will compete with similar offerings from FTX, which bought out the popular Blockfolio crypto portfolio application in 2020.
The new dapp will be available to MetaMask browser extension and mobile app users who need to navigate to portfolio.metamask.io and connect to the wallet.
The portfolio allows them to connect and monitor other accounts and wallets, such as cold wallets, but it was not clear or obvious when testing whether it would link up to wallets stored on centralized exchanges such as Binance.
The dapp did have full support for Ethereum Name Service (ENS) addresses and wallets, enabling users to add those of their friends. The portfolio is also multi-chain and will connect to the following networks: Ethereum, Optimism, BNB Smart Chain, Polygon, Fantom, Abritrum, and Avalanche.
There is also a non-fungible token (NFT) section allowing users to “get a holistic view” of their digital art collections. ConsenSys stated that the Portfolio View and NFT View features were not the last ones to be added and provided a link for users to propose feature ideas.
In related news, also on Sept. 28, ConsenSys announced that MetaMask Institutional clients will now have access to leading custodial providers Cobo, Floating Point Group, Liminal, and Propine.
“The latest onboarding brings the total number of custodians supported by MetaMask Institutional to eleven, further bolstering our position as the premier institutional wallet for Web3,” said Liz Mathew, global head of growth and partnerships for MMI.
Crypto Markets Sideways

The only major mover in the top assets by market cap is Ripple’s XRP on the news that a judge has ordered the SEC to hand over internal documents related to a 2018 speech by former commissioner William Hinman. XRP is currently up around 10% on the day, trading at $0.48 at the time of writing.
