ConsenSys confirms leading Web3 wallet Metamask will integrate Onramp.money to enable seamless transactions in India, according to a company statement.
The integration will enable Indian Metamask users to easily purchase cryptocurrencies directly within their MetaMask using local payment methods, including UPI & IMPS, according to the statement.
Driving blockchain adoption in India
The partnership aims to drive the adoption of blockchain technology in India — to improve user access to crypto and decentralized applications (dApps).
Onramp.money CEO Gaurav Dahake said:
“We believe this partnership will make it easier for Indian users to access and use decentralized applications, and we look forward to working with MetaMask to drive the adoption of blockchain technology in India.”
Onramp.money is a platform that enables instant transactions for crypto users in India — connecting users to Ethereum (ETH), Polygon (MATIC), and BNB networks.
Product Manager at MetaMask Lorenzo Santos said:
“This integration will make it easier for Indian users to access the Ethereum, Polygon, and BNB networks and use decentralized applications. We believe this will help drive the adoption of blockchain technology in India.”
The integration coincides with the Indian Central Bank’s shift towards digital currency adoption and the push for crypto regulation in India.
