Multi-chain Assets Management

On diverse chains like Metamask, users need to switch between networks to check their assets. In some circumstances it can be very complicated due to the different instructions and because of the isolated nature of the chains, users may need to transfer assets across blockchains through cross-chain bridges. All these elements have a great impact on the user’s experience when dealing with assets on various chains.
