At Metis, we work hard every day to develop new and exciting technology. But in the blockchain world, bleeding-edge tech by itself isn’t enough. You need new and exciting projects to adopt that technology, then use it to grow and thrive in their own right.
Months of parallel work developing that tech and recruiting great projects has culminated in today’s release of the Metis Ecosystem chart.
One of the most logical and widely adopted use cases for blockchain technology is Decentralized Finance (DeFi). The Metis stable of DeFi partners has swelled to a dozen different projects.
All of the following…
At Metis, we aim to be much more than just a Layer 2 Rollup and Ethereum scaling solution. Our goal is to become a hub for the entire Web3 economy.
Meeting that goal requires big thinking. It means integrating the best projects and DApps from many different industries and niches — both from the blockchain world and the vast world of Web2 companies that stand to benefit from everything that blockchain has to offer.
That’s why we’re thrilled to announce details for the first ever #MetisHackathon!
Starting October 2 and running until October 30, we’re inviting you to build…
With our Public Testnet launch coming this month and Mainnet launch in October, Team Metis is hard at work developing our tech and onboarding new partners to build on our Ethereum Layer 2 Rollup. We are committed to assembling a large, diverse group of strategic blockchain and non-blockchain partners from the worlds of DeFi, NFTs, DAOs, Gaming, Launchpads, Infrastructure, and more.
We’ve made big strides in the past few months, thanks to the success of the Metis Ecosystem Development Program (EDP). The Metis EDP gives established blockchain companies, blockchain startups, and even non-blockchain projects three major benefits:
Everyone is excited about NFTs and the market cap of cryptocurrencies these days, but you know something I think people will be increasingly excited about (again) in the next few years? Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs). It seems like no one talks about DAOs anymore, as if they were only a crypto trend that ended up passing us by. But the truth is that DAOs are alive and well, and many teams are already leveraging them to govern their blockchain projects, with many more to come. …
It’s been a wild past few weeks in the world of blockchain.
The NFT market has soared, becoming wildly popular and more valuable by the hour, while also costing far more in transaction-related gas fees. Decentralized Finance (DeFi) is attracting landslides of new money every day, though the use of side chains and commit chains to back DeFi ventures threatens the decentralized nature of DeFi, inviting major security risks.
And just a few days ago, the largest blockchain (by far) as measured by developer activity completed a successful hard fork, highlighting both the growth potential of Ethereum and the challenges…
How we are paving the path to the next blockchain Unicorn
Blockchain technology and decentralized finance (DeFi) have been all over the media in the past year. DeFi is completely changing the way we do finance, and there are more and more companies, big and small, exploring what DeFi can do for them.
Still, one of the big challenges that new DeFi or blockchain companies face is the lack of engineering capacity with the wide range of expertise required to tackle a broad range of projects.
Developing a decentralized application involves a number of steps: writing the smart contract that…
On Thursday, August 5, Metis hosted its first-ever livestream fireside chat. Moderated by Metis CEO Elena Sinelnikova with special guests Emerge Founder/CEO Lucia Gallardo and Opolis Founder/Steward John Paller, the event focused on the future of work, and how blockchain technology can be deployed for social good.
Elena Sinelnikova began the event by discussing how the mission of blockchain has always been about solving problems with equitable solutions. Everything from financial inclusion to worker rights and protections can be improved through the use of blockchain.
Gallardo agreed, recounting her journey into blockchain, one that started in earnest when she was…
Decentralized exchanges like Uniswap, Pancakeswap, Quickswap and MDEX reinvented the way people trade digital assets and receive profit from trading if assets’ prices go up.
WOWswap works on top of those decentralized exchanges and offers the simplest tool to maximize profits with 5x leveraged long-swaps.
But is it possible to receive a profit when a token’s price goes down?
The answer is “YES” — it’s called shorting. When you short a token, you loan it from someone and immediately sell that token: Short = Borrow + Sell.
If the token’s price goes 📉, you buy it back later…
Decentralized Exchanges (DEX) are a key foundation for the DeFi ecosystem. They give you the ability to trade and swap one cryptocurrency for another peer-to-peer, without the need for third parties such as a centralized exchange or traditional financial institutions.
Still, we have to ask: Why worry about implementing decentralized exchanges if we already have their centralized counterparts? How do DEXes actually work, and more importantly, why are they important for the DeFi space?
Welcome to the Testnet edition of MetisSwap!
A Layer 2 Decentralized Exchange application building on Metis Layer 2 Beta Testnet.
Decentralized Exchanges are the most complicated application in all of DeFi. Launching MetisSwap proves that any and all DeFi projects can run on Metis Layer 2 Beta Testnet from now on.
