The origin story of MetaMask may be headed to court!
In a lawsuit filed in San Francisco, crypto influencer Joel Dietz claims that Consensys stole his idea for a browser-based crypto wallet similar to MetaMask. Dietz alleges that he created the intellectual property that eventually became MetaMask under a project called Vapor in late 2014. He hired a person named Davis in 2015 to help with coding Vapor, but Dietz accuses Davis of betraying him and collaborating with Consensys instead. Consensys denies Dietz’s claims, stating that he falsely marketed himself as the founder of MetaMask to deceive investors.
