MetaMask’s Crypto Wallet App Back On Google Play For Android's After Being Banned

    MetaMask’s Ban from Google Play Has Been Lifted

    MetaMask, one of the major Ethereum wallet services and browser extensions, has something else to celebrate besides entering the new year, as Google has lifted its browser add-on ban.

    This is what MetaMask has tweeted on January 1, 2020:

    MetaMask Was Mistaken for Being a Mining App by Google

    A Chrome extension, MetaMask has a built-in crypto wallet that enables the running of dApps, which are Ethereum-based decentralized apps, without the operation of a full Ethereum node. Google decided a week ago to suspend the MetaMask Android client in Google Play, as Goggle has a strict policy when it comes to cryptocurrency apps that mine on mobile devices. MetaMask doesn’t do this, so Google has made a mistake regarding its activity.

    MetaMask’s Appeal Rejected by Google

    On December 26, MetaMask tweeted about the ban and added that Google Play rejected its appeal. It also released a new year thread in which it was thanking its users for their suggestions on alternative distributions methods for the period in which it was being blacklisted by Google. MetaMask wanted to mention the experience made its community more resilient and stronger.

    Problems with the MetaMask Team?

    At the end of December 2019, one of MetaMask contributors said the MetaMask team is overwhelmed and not supported by ConsensSys, its parent firm. It was also stated the project’s workflow is not decentralized, nor transparent. The code was claimed to be lacking high-quality and to have technical debt.

    Daniel Finlay, a MetaMask employee, responded to these comments by saying the contributor’s tone is too “inflammatory and alarmist” for someone who isn’t a fully-fledged MetaMask team member. However, Finlay mentioned the criticism regarding the code is indeed accurate. He added how grateful MetaMask is for the support offered by Joe Lubin and ConsenSys for the project.
