Omni vs Metamask


Wallets are an essential tool for navigating Web3. You cannot avoid having a wallet but with so many of them out there, researching which one is the right option for you can get tedious. Here is the comparison of the Omni wallet vs. the Metamask wallet for factors that matter most to Web3 users. 

What is Omni?

Omni is a mobile-first super wallet that brings everything Web3 users need to manage their assets across all major chains, from EVMs, to non-EVMs, and all major L2s. You can also manage your NFTs across major chains on top of being able to swap, bridge and stake in record speed, all in one place. On top of that, Omni is one of the most secure self-custodial wallets in the market, allowing you to even import your Ledger for maximum safety.

What is Metamask?

Metamask is a widely used wallet for EVM-compatible chains on both mobile and browser extensions. As a wallet that launched in 2016, it is one of the older wallets in the market that enables users to store and swap their assets. Metamask is also a self-custodial wallet that is used by most developers for deploying their dApps and by Web3 users for interacting with web3 applications.

What are the services that Omni and Metamask offer?

Although both Omni and Metamask are self-custodial wallets, these apps provide different value to users. You will begin to see the differences when you consider what the two wallets are trying to achieve with their services. While Omni is a multi-chain wallet that provides a vast range of DeFi, NFT, and general Web3 services, Metamask is more focussed on developing management of funds for EVM networks.

Core feature: User-friendliness

Your wallet is the foundation of your Web3 experience. It should enable you to navigate Web3 easily, and efficiently. See how Omni and Metamask compare across some of the most important use-cases in Web3.

Your wallet is like your buddy that adventures around the Web3 universe with you. The easier and simpler it is to use, the better your experience of Web3 will be.


Omni was designed to provide you with a range of features and functionalities that are extremely simple so that you can spend more time doing the things that are actually important: Experiencing Web 3. This is why, no matter what chain you are on, your staking experience with any token will be the same 3-tap flow. Whether it be staking, liquid staking or even depositing in a yield vault, Omni's 3-tap signature flow allows you to focus more on earning rather than consistently adapting to different earning infrastructure to get your DeFi work done.


Metamask was launched in 2016 for a community that needed a reliable, secure wallet that made it easy to interact with dApps, and store and manage funds. As Ethereum was and remains the most active ecosystem, Metamask was designed with the idea of being EVM-compatible first. Countless of Web3 users still rely on Metamask to maneuver through Web3 and manage their funds.

As the Web3 space continued to develop, users now can participate in a comprehensive range of activities in a range of chains. From trading NFTs on Stargaze, to accessing cloud computing in Akash, to playing hot games on Solana and BNB, we need flexibility in manoeuvring across chains. Although Metamask is great for managing funds in EVM-compatible chains and connecting with dApps across its supported ecosystems, if you want to experience the full breadth of Web3, you will need Omni to enjoy full access.
