MetaMask, one of the most popular and widely used Ethereum-based crypto wallets, has recently announced its latest “Sell” feature in the portfolio section, which enables users to convert their digital crypto assets to traditional fiat currency.

While the concept of converting crypto to cash is not entirely new, MetaMask finally launched its “Sell” feature after recently launching its “Buy” feature, which allows users to purchase crypto using fiat from their bank accounts, PayPal, and debit or credit cards.

However, it’s important to note that, for now, these features are accessible exclusively to users in the United States, the United Kingdom, and selected regions of Europe.

MetaMask’s New Feature: “Sell”

On September 5, the company took to X (formerly Twitter) to make the announcement to launch their latest “sell” feature. This innovative move signifies MetaMask’s pivotal steps in creating a seamless channel for transitioning between digital and traditional financial assets.

With the introduction of the latest Sell feature, MetaMask provides its users with real-time conversion options, similar to the convenience offered by renowned wallets such as CashApp. This feature enables MetaMask users to effortlessly transform their cryptocurrency holdings into their preferred fiat currencies, all in accordance with the availability of this service within their respective regions.

Transaction fees

If we look at the transaction fees on the Sell feature, MetaMask has considered two fees when cashing out crypto: the gas fee for network transactions and a transaction fee to providers like Moonpay. So, the additional transaction fees are estimated to be around 8% of the total transaction.
