Why use Talisman over Metamask?

Talisman offers one of the best user experiences possible for a multichain wallet, with an ultra slick and fast UI showing all your assets in one screen which has been purposely created for the Polkadot and Kusama ecosystem.

It provides Moonbeam/Moonriver network support right out of the box and is fully equipped for all user needs whether it’s to buy/sell tokens, purchase NFTs, or also using dapps.

With one of Talisman’s latest updates you can also connect to any networks that uses Metamask, enabling you to manage all your ETH compatible assets in one place without having to switch networks each time you want to view your assets 🤩


You can download Talisman today from https://talisman.xyz and instructions are shown below to get you started and setup 🤝

With Talisman wallet EVM compatibility for both ETH and Polkadot ecosystem assets, you’ll be ready to go for Exosama when it launches on September 21st!
Please note that the Moonsama bridge is not yet connected with Talisman but it will be soon integrated.
