Joe Lubin, the founder of ConsenSys, has teased that MetaMask could be set to launch its own token.
MASK Token Coming?
The possibility of MetaMask releasing its own token has taken a great leap forward this week. The revelation comes after ConsenSys CEO Joe Lubin was seemingly goaded into announcing the news in a Twitter spat with a journalist.
The initial spark which ignited the disagreement was the release of the Coinbase Wallet browser extension, which the exchange announced earlier this week. Bitcoin developer ‘icebergy’ shared the update on his Twitter account on October 8th and declared that “MetaMask is going to have to drop a token.”
When CoinDesk reporter Andrew T dismissed the suggestion due to MetaMasks’ links with JP Morgan, MetaMask chief Lubin was quick to jump in.
“Andrew, ConsenSys has thousands of tokens on our balance sheet,” said an irked Lubin. “ConsenSys is vigorously controlled by its employees, which includes me. And we are driving towards the decentralization of several of our projects. Wen $MASK? Stay tuned.”
Lubin then signed off with a final stinger, “Wen objective journalism, ser?”
Following the pointed exchange, the reporter’s attempts to continue engagement with Lubin fell on deaf ears. It appears that the ConsenSys CEO may have got everything off his chest that he needed to for now, but at the price of confirming an upcoming MetaMask token.
