Phantom, a popular self-custody wallet for Solana-based decentralized applications and NFTs, is adding support for rival blockchains Ethereum and Polygon to its desktop, iOS, and Android apps. The company argues that an easy-to-use self-custodial wallet is essential as an alternative to centralized exchanges and companies that handle sensitive user data.
Brandon Millman, CEO, and co-founder of Phantom, said in a statement that the aim is to provide the ability to interact with the three largest blockchain ecosystems in one location and address critical usability and securities challenges in the digital collectibles market. Phantom says it worked closely with Polygon to build a first-class wallet experience, which the company claims has already onboarded over 3 million active users.
The company wants to make crypto more accessible to everyone by offering a simple, easy-to-use wallet with a unified interface for storing and viewing assets across multiple blockchains. A private multi-chain beta will go live in the coming weeks, with a public launch later this year.
