This is reported by CoinDesk, citing people familiar with the matter. The wallet provider plans to introduce Bitcoin support within the next month, but the exact time is unknown. Functionality is not yet set in stone, but features could initially be limited and expanded over time.

For this moment MetaMask is the most-used Ethereum wallet – it is the gateway for more than 30 million monthly active users

    Just imagine signing Ethereum smart contracts with a Bitcoin wallet. How much smoother would that be for the user? Would wallets even be referred to as “Bitcoin” or “Ethereum” wallets, or just be simply wallets.
