MetaMask Updates User License, Some Users Need to Pay Fee



MetaMask announced it had made updates to its products’ use license.

The company stated in a press release published on its blog that the new updates will not have any impact on all end-users, most application developers and non-profits and will be free of charge for those groups.

The company clarified that it would continue publishing and iterating upon the wallet provider API in the public sphere, ensuring a widely cross-compatible ecosystem of applications. It added it would remain committed to publishing all code in a public repository.

What about using MetaMask for commercial purposes?

According to MetaMask, developers who copy, modify, or fork the MetaMask codebase for commercial use, are invited to sign a formal commercial agreement with the company.

“For example, if you’ve copied MetaMask and offer it commercially to an audience larger than 10,000 monthly active users, we would like to enter into a formal commercial agreement,” the company said.

MetaMask justified this step, saying that in order to continue providing high-quality products in the future, it was necessary to obtain fair compensation that would allow them to continue and develop.

It is worth noting that MetaMask launched the eighth update of its Ethereum wallet last July, which includes a number of new features such as enhanced privacy control and a new account-login system.

Germany commemorates Euro 2020 soccer team with NFTs




The German Football Association (DFB) has officially announced the debut of national soccer team nonfungbile tokens (NFTs) in partnership with a major blockchain-based fantasy soccer game provider Sorare.

As part of an official license agreement, the DFB will create digital collectible cards on the Ethereum blockchain of 18 players on the German national team through Sorare’s platform. According to an announcement from Sorare, the cards will be available for use in Sorare’s Global Fantasy Football game for the Euro 2020 soccer championship.

By issuing player NFT cards on Sorare’s platform, the DFB aims to find new revenue streams as well as provide more fan engagement opportunities, particularly as COVID-19-related restrictions have resulted in limited game attendance in recent months.

“Especially in the Corona pandemic, digital offers were and are the only way to enter into direct exchange with our fans. But even though the Corona crisis will hopefully soon be over, we want to continue to use the possibilities of digitalization much more intensively, also with our partners, and offer our fans new interactive opportunities,”  said Holger Blask, the DFB’s managing director of marketing and sales.

Founded in 2018, Sorare is a global fantasy football game that allows users to play with officially licensed digital cards featuring 140 football clubs including Liverpool, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus and PSG. Last week, the French Football Federation launched its own series of player NFTs prior to the team’s match against Germany.
