Hedera Hashgraph Embraces MetaMask
This integration presents thrilling prospects for MetaMask users, offering them seamless access and interaction with Hedera’s decentralized applications (DApps). In the run-up to this integration, Hedera has planned for comprehensive support for JSON-RPC-enabled wallets and applications.
Included in the updates are features such as transferring HBAR to and from 0x accounts, enhanced usability via updated “token associations,” better connectivity with MetaMask, and compatibility with Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) tooling.
MetaMask, well-known as an Ethereum wallet and a gateway to the decentralized finance (DeFi) world, will now enable users to effortlessly engage with Hedera’s DApps. An elaborate guide to DApp development has been shared on their official blog.
Pioneering Stablecoin Remittance Pilot
Hedera Hashgraph has played an active role in propelling cross-border remittances with the implementation of distributed ledger technology (DLT). In a collaborative effort with Shinhan Bank, SCB TechX, and other financial institutions, Hedera has completed a successful PoC pilot for stablecoin remittances.
This groundbreaking initiative, jointly executed by Shinhan Bank, SCB TechX, and Taiwan’s largest financial institution, leveraged Hedera’s highly efficient and eco-friendly public network. Throughout the pilot, the platform achieved real-time settlement and integrated real-time foreign exchange rates for three currencies: Thai Baht (THB), New Taiwan Dollar (NTD), and South Korean Won (KRW).
The PoC is fully compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), allowing any stablecoin issuer leveraging EVM to utilize this framework moving forward.
Hedera’s native cryptocurrency, HBAR, is currently trading at $0.05276 at the time of writing. The trading volume has seen a significant surge of 141.54% over the past 24 hours.
