"Default cryptocurrency wallet" options

In brave://settings/wallet (Brave 1.32.106), the following are the first two choices for “Default cryptocurrency wallet:”

  • Brave Wallet (prefer extensions)
  • Brave Wallet

What is the difference between these?

  • I assume that “prefer extensions” would mean that if you had metamask installed, then metamask will be used, otherwise Brave Wallet is the fallback.
  • I assume that “Brave Wallet” will ignore installed extensions, such as metamask.

Hope this clears it

Brave wallet will provide window.ethereum but extensions can override it

Brave wallet will solely provide window.ethereum even if extensions are installed.
