Quick take:

  • Metalink has launched a mobile app version of its web platform.
  • The company wants to bring NFT conversations to a proper web3 application.
  • The app will allow traders to chat, transact and track NFT collections.

Metalink has launched a mobile app. The NFT platform’s web version allows users to talk, transact and track their NFTs without leaving the platform. The new app will allow traders to take the conversation out of leading social media platforms like Discord and Telegram.

The app allows users to view real-time portfolios and floor prices of NFT collections both in crypto and fiat. There is also a section where creators can share updates about their NFT collections, also allowing the community to chat and exchange insights.


Commenting on the app launch on his company’s website, Metalink CEO Jake Udell called it “an app for the NFT community.”

“The NFT community is one of the best on the internet, but there hasn’t been a mobile app to serve us. The Metalink app aims to be the signal through the noise for you to stay up to date on the most important information regarding your NFTs and the community as a whole,” he wrote in a statement meant to reflect how messaging will appear on the app.

Metalink also revealed that it raised $6 million in an undisclosed funding round, backed by some of the industry’s leading investors.

The company has partnerships with the likes of OpenSea, as well as, Social Capital, Gemini, Dapper Labs, Guy Oseary, and Gary Vaynerchuk, who have invested in the app.

Social Capital’s Chamath Palihapitiya commented: “Metalink marries chat, community, wallet and trading in one experience. Our early users are almost 10% of the volume on existing platforms and is our signal that Jake and his team may have found product/market fit.”

In the current set-up, NFT traders engage in conversations on platforms like Telegram, follow company updates on Discord, and track NFT floor prices through on-chain analytics data research and analytics platforms like Dune Analytics and Metalink brings offers all these services in one platform. 

“The vision is to eventually not need to communicate through Web2 messaging apps and separately buy and sell through several different marketplaces,” said Jake Udell.

Echoing Udell’s sentiment, Metalink’s head of product, Adam Ceresko said Metalink’s goal is to make it as easy as possible for anyone “to quickly and safely chat with holders of any collection in their portfolio.”

“With Metalink, you simply connect your wallet and start typing. Token holders only, one chat per collection. No Discord, Telegram or verification bots.”

The app is currently available in iOS format with the Android version scheduled to launch soon. 

The app also leverages popular social media tools like emojis to boost community engagement.
