The world of crypto remains intriguing to many. Digital currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum have many an investor captivated, with the idea that we will eventually switch to crypto in everyday use. With these extensions on Google Chrome, we may be getting closer to that, too.
It can all be pretty complicated, these cryptos. So fortunately, these extensions are there to help you navigate this maze so you don’t fall into a hole.
The 5 Ideal Google Chrome Extensions for Crypto
To make your online experience around crypto easier, we scoured the Google Chrome Web Store for the best extensions that are going to help you.
Metamask is one of the most widely used applications in the world of crypto. What helps with this is that the Google Chrome extension also works together with an app that is just downloadable on your mobile. That way you can access your crypto wallet anywhere.
It is possible to use two blockchains with this extension. That of Ethereum (which thus allows you to access Ethereum’s crypto coins) and Binance Smart Chain (which has a diverse range of coins). Switching between the two is done at the touch of a button.
#2 Wallet Highlighter
Almost anywhere there is money to be made, malicious people eventually pop up and try to scam people. It’s no different in the world of crypto, but with this Google Chrome extension, you don’t have to worry about that anymore.

The Wallet Highlighter extension protects your crypto wallet from fraud, phishing and theft, among other things. The Google Chrome extension scans other wallets to see if they may pose a risk.
#3 Zoidpay for Google Chrome
The ultimate goal of advances in crypto is that we can eventually pay with the coins in those digital wallets. With Zoidpay, this is already possible. A digital payment card is created, then you can transfer money from your wallet to that card and pay.
It may not yet be the perfect picture of the future of crypto, but at least this Google Chrome extension brings us a little closer to a world where we pay with these coins.
#4 Crypto Tab
Just a rather simple one, because they are allowed. This Google Chrome extension replaces the default tab with a clear overview of how Bitcoin is currently doing and its rise.
