Time and time again we get asked these questions by our stakeholders: Why did we build Metis, and who did we build it for? Despite the ever evolving global market, our answer — and our north star — have remained constant.
Metis is for the community. From our community’s desire to build their own DeFi apps or NFT business to community members seeking blockchain solutions with high functionality, high scalability, self-sustainability, and lower gas fees, Metis works to address all of those needs, and many more. We’re combining the security and transparency already inherent in the Ethereum blockchain with Metis’ own Reputation Power trust-management system to build an experience that will grow our community for years to come.
Metis is a project like no other, because it gives YOU, the community member, the mining and owning power to build whatever you and your business desires. We see blockchain as a place where wealth and opportunity are shared by the entire community.
Our founders, staff, and 30 ambassadors across the globe help connect the tens of thousands of users who’ve already tried out our Layer 2 alpha testnet, and the millions more who will build their own dApps and DACs (Decentralized Autonomous Companies) on Metis Rollup in the future. Through that rapidly growing and highly engaged community, we receive a constant stream of feedback and suggestions, which we use to improve our Layer 2 platform to provide even more functionality.
We’re growing a community that goes beyond the usual cohort of seasoned developers to include everyone, even total blockchain novices. By offering everyone the ability to engage in activities ranging from yield farming to building their own decentralized social networks with just a few clicks, we are honoring our commitment to ensure that blockchain will be for everyone.
In just a short time since its deployment, our alpha testnet has already helped so many “MEs” experience all that blockchain technology has to offer.
In the first three three weeks after our alpha testnet launch, we saw 12,683 “MEs” link their wallets to our platform, 6,856 “MEs” build their own DACs, and thousands more “MEs” execute 166,859 testnet transactions and 22,607 Layer 2 smart contract calls.
We also launched the first-ever Community-Minted NFT Event, “Rebuilding the Tower of Babel”. That event saw 12,118 wallets connected, with 2,560 Tribes created in less than 100 minutes. The NFT fetched a closing price of 16.1 ETH, and the 256 participating Tribes full of “MEs” who perform the necessary mining tasks got to share the proceeds with the talented artist who created the original artwork.
Our company is named after Metis, the Greek goddess who embodied the virtues of prudence, wisdom, and good counsel. These are three vital tenets that we use to guide our decisions every day. What’s even more exciting is that our community members embody these same qualities, creating a perfectly symbiotic relationship.
As you watch our new video introducing our founders, staff, ambassadors, and community members, you get more than a simple pronunciation guide (MEE-teess). You get a simple synopsis of our global presence, both as a company and as a community.
It takes the enthusiasm of each of you to make us who we are and who we hope to become as a company. Because you are “The ME in Metis.”
