Crypto Live Update: MetaMask Glitch Fixed

BNB Chain recently announced that they have fixed a “glitch” in MetaMask that caused it to overestimate opBNB gas fees. As many users pay the default recommended fee displayed in their wallets, this misestimation could have caused them to overpay.

opBNB is a layer-2 of Ethereum that was launched on Sept. 13. According to the team, they discovered that MetaMask had set a default minimum recommendation price for gas based on the average of all networks, which didn’t quite align with opBNB since its fees can be much lower than other L1 and L2 networks.

The BNB Chain team contacted the MetaMask team, who were “extremely helpful and agreed to update their algorithm.” As a result, the wallet now accurately displays the opBNB network’s fees. Users can now check each network’s fees by switching to opBNB from within MetaMask and attempting to perform a transaction, which the team claims will show that the network often has lower fees than competitors.

The OP Stack, developed by the OP Labs team, is a modular framework that can be used to create interoperable blockchain networks, such as the Superchain they are attempting to create. This poses a challenge to Polygon’s “Supernets,” which is striving to achieve a similar goal. As crypto continues to evolve, the latest news and updates can be found on Twitter, media outlets, and other live sources. Web 3.0 websites can be created using the blockchain, providing a secure network for crypto markets.
