The Mask Network, along with Uniswap and CoinMarketCap, has launched a trading widget. The new trading widget will allow Twitter users to trade ERC-20 tokens without leaving the social media platform. The widget will create a pop-up window displaying market data by both CoinMarketCap and CoinGecko and an interface for trading on Uniswap whenever the user hovers the mouse pointer over the tickers of crypto assets.

How to use Maskbook from Twitter
If you are in Twitter and see any tickers, just hover your mouse and you will see a page appear that will contain the following details:
- Price tab
The Price tab shows the latest price chart of the selected token. The price chart data is supported by both CoinMarketCap and CoinGecko.
- Exchange tab
This tab shows the exchange pair value from different exchanges.
However, we have noticed that it is showing only a few exchange pairs and no scroll or search bar option is present where you can enter and check values for other pairs.
The swap feature is supported by Uniswap and it will allow you to swap one token value with another.
Once you click on Confirm Swap, your transaction has been submitted. You can now check your balance in the wallet.
In case you are unable to see the token in the wallet, you can manually select the required token by clicking on the Add Token button.
Embedding the Maskbook widget on Twitter is a great feature. Twitter news greatly influences the buying and selling decisions of the users. The users can now trade directly from the news! The user can also see price trends to understand the impact of the news and also evaluate various trading options. Maskbook is one step in the right direction of user adoption. It has reduced manual steps and enables quick decisions, all from Twitter. We suggest you try it out.
