Minerva Wallet Launches on Polygon to bring Mass Adoption and Onboard More Users to DeFi

We are delighted to announce the launch of Minerva Wallet (by lab10 collective), a fully non-custodial wallet for self-sovereign identity and money to Polygon.

Described as “Ethereum’s internet of blockchains,” Polygon is manifesting itself as a full-stack scaling solution for new exceptional projects because of the high throughput and low gas expenses experienced by projects and developers in its platform.

Polygon has won increasing adoption owing to the launch of big players in decentralized finance (DeFi), non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and gaming. While DApp space on Polygon is thriving, Wallet space is still in its infancy — Minerva Wallet is here to make some huge strides and open DeFi to hundreds of millions of new users, changing the game beyond measure.

Minerva Wallet with its integrated Fiat On-Ramp service combined with the best DeFi applications in the space aims to provide leading-edge financial services that the traditional finance sector is missing out on.

The Minerva Wallet itself is a fully non-custodial, multi-chain, and multi-account wallet for sovereign identities, data, and money that can be connected to any DApp with WalletConnect support. The latest version is available for download on the Google PlayStore, It comes with a very simplified onboarding experience and the option of bridging tokens between networks via various DApps. We simplify here, to “fabulou-fy” there.

Minerva will further add easy access to various Polygon DApps and enable the next wave of new users currently waiting for simple, uncomplicated, and affordable access to DeFi.

“Polygon has been the rising star within the Ethereum ecosystem and they helped a lot to mitigate the scaling issues and high gas prices on mainnet. Therefore I’m extremely excited that now we can offer access to the well established decentralized financial market with the mobile Minerva Wallet for hundreds of millions of users.” — Thomas Zeinzinger, lab10 collective Head of the Board

“Wallets are a key piece of infrastructure in the Web3 Ecosystem, and we’re glad to have Minerva’s user-friendly wallet supporting Polygon and the ecosystem of Dapps building on it.” — Sandeep Nailwal, CoFounder of Polygon
