The Mina Foundation, the public benefit corporation serving the Mina Protocol, and developer partner SotaTek announce the integration of Mina Protocol with MetaMask Snaps, developed by Consensys. Mina Protocol will be one of the first non-EVM chains to be integrated within the MetaMask platform. Through MinaPortal, MetaMask users will be able to manage their MINA assets seamlessly. In 2022, MetaMask surpassed 100 million users.
“MetaMask is excited to welcome Mina Protocol as one of the innovating builders for MetaMask Snaps. By incorporating Mina Protocol, a leading ZK blockchain, as one of the initial non-EVM chains within the MetaMask platform, we mark the beginning of our journey toward fostering interoperability. We strongly believe that permissionless innovation is fundamental to a decentralized ecosystem,” said Christian Montoya, Senior Product Manager at MetaMask Snaps.
“Mina Protocol’s integration represents a significant milestone, with MinaPortal becoming an integral part of the first production release of MetaMask Snaps,” said Kurt Hemecker, COO of the Mina Foundation. “MinaPortal brings the power of Mina Protocol’s native ZK programmability to millions of MetaMask users, elevating the possibilities of enhanced privacy and efficiency in digital transactions and applications.”
MetaMask Snaps’ user interface seamlessly integrates Mina Protocol through MinaPortal, allowing users to easily create a Mina Protocol address, send and receive Mina tokens, manage public and private keys, and view their transaction history. Beyond these features, the Snaps UI also introduces additional functionality for zkApp builders.
Tyler Luu, CEO of SotaTek, said, “With MinaPortal, MetaMask users gain a seamless and intuitive platform to manage their MINA assets. As well as its immediate utility for MetaMask users, this integration also stands as a catalyst for ZK developers, paving the way for the growth and adaptation of their zkApps within the Snaps UI.”
With Mina Protocol now seamlessly integrated into MetaMask Snaps, both the Mina Protocol and MetaMask communities can look forward to a future where privacy and efficiency are at the forefront of their digital experiences.

About Mina Protocol
Mina is the world’s lightest blockchain, powered by participants. Rather than apply brute computing force, Mina uses advanced cryptography and recursive zk-SNARKs to design an entire blockchain that is about 22kb, the size of a couple of tweets. It is the first layer-1 to enable efficient implementation and easy programmability of zero knowledge smart contracts (zkApps). With its unique privacy features and ability to connect to any website, Mina is building a private gateway between the real world and crypto—and the secure, democratic future we all deserve.
