Buying crypto within MetaMask is easy and curated. You don’t have to leave the wallet, there are a variety of payment options to fund your account, and you can play in the world of Web3 directly on the go.

With Sardine’s new instant ACH integration, you can buy crypto instantly with no settlement delays within MetaMask Mobile. 

Instant ACH allows orders to complete in minutes instead of days like a standard ACH order, and works on holidays, unlike regular ACH.

ACH can be preferable to cards for some users according to Sardine because: 

  1. Instant ACH is more likely to work as paying with cards may be declined in 50% of purchases. 
  2. Instant ACH allows higher limits than cards. 

To fund your MetaMask Mobile wallet directly through this method, simply choose “Instant Bank Transfer” after selecting the BUY button in your home screen.

Sardine’s payment system helps combat fraud and allows instant purchases of up to $3,000/day, $5,000/week, and $25,000/month for over 30 tokens.

What is Sardine?

Sardine is an instant fiat and crypto settlement platform with a robust compliance and fraud prevention infrastructure used behind the scenes by existing crypto providers like FTX, MoonPay, Blockchain, and Autograph. The company is a leader in real-time fraud detection and allows users to move money faster and safer through its ACH-to-crypto solution.  Instead of waiting for the money to hit your account in order to use it, Sardine sends you the money instantly, so you don’t have to expect any delays.

How do I get started?

You will be prompted to sign up and go through the KYC process directly with Sardine.

To fund your wallet with instant ACH bank transfer: 

  1. Click “BUY” on the home screen to get started 
  2. Select your state (Sardine supports 48 states currently. Hawaii and New York will be supported in the future) 
  3. Choose “Instant Bank Transfer” as your payment method 
  4. Select the token and network you want to purchase on (example: ETH on Ethereum)

  6. Select “Sardine” as your provider. Note: If this is your first time using Sardine, you will be prompted to sign up directly with them. 
  7. Review purchase and click “Confirm” 

Done. Sardine’s ACH-to-crypto purchase allows you to enjoy your funds instantly without waiting for days. Curious about NFTs? DeFi? Start diving in.
