Simplifying Web3: New MetaMask Delegation Toolkit

MetaMask, developed by Ethereum firm Consensys, has unveiled its latest innovation: the MetaMask Delegation Toolkit. This delegation toolkit is designed to streamline user onboarding and enhance the Web3 experience. The toolkit also aims to begin onboarding developers to build innovative and user-friendly experiences.

Seamless and Instant User Onboarding

Announced at the Ethereum Community Conference (EthCC) in Brussels, Belgium, this toolkit addresses and eliminates user friction while simplifying the development of decentralized applications (dapps).

One of the standout features of the MetaMask Delegation Toolkit is its ability to provide easy user onboarding. Traditionally, users must navigate browser extension wallets, mobile apps, and various seed phrases to access Web3 applications. This instant user onboarding eliminates these hurdles, allowing users to join without these often cumbersome processes.

The toolkit eliminates user friction by removing pop-ups and constant confirmations, providing smoother interactions and making it easier for users to engage with Web3.

Features of the Delegation Toolkit

The Delegation Toolkit offers granular levels of safety tailored to individual user needs, enhancing the security and usability of dapps and enabling instant asset creation.

It is compatible with multiple Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) chains, including Arbitrum, Avalanche, Base, Linea, Optimism, and Polygon. Supported by a user operation bundler, this toolkit allows developers to create previously unattainable experiences and simplifies smart contract development.

Dan Finlay, the co-founder of MetaMask, highlighted the toolkit’s toolkit’s “The MetaMask Delegation Toolkit will allow seamless onboarding of users into a new generation of dynamic and nimble experiences, which benefit from the kinds of rich collaboration that can only come from a new paradigm of authorization and composability.”

Benefits for Developers and Users

Developers stand to benefit significantly from the MetaMask Delegation Toolkit. It simplifies smart contract development by reducing the need for custom delegation code, allowing developers to focus on their applications.

The toolkit also supports new use cases, such as recurring subscription payments, enabling richer user experiences. According to the announcement, this approach can reduce smart contract code by 95%.

Additionally, the toolkit allows developers to reassign gas costs, allowing certain users to avoid paying fees. This feature aims to create a more user-friendly experience by eliminating repetitive confirmations and pop-ups, thus immersing users in the dapp environment and enhancing user experiences.


The MetaMask Delegation Toolkit aims to represent a significant step forward in the evolution of Web3. It leverages smart contracts to enhance user accessibility and security across blockchain platforms. By simplifying the onboarding process and improving the overall user experience, MetaMask is paving the way for broader adoption and innovation in the decentralized space.
