Stay in touch to learn more.

Why Meter is Better Money

Meter is a Layer 1, permissionless, low-volatility currency without collateral, oracle, or regulatory risk.

Fully Decentralized

Anyone can create Meter through Proof-of-Work mining, but no one can manipulate it. Thus it avoids counterparty and regulatory risk.

No Collateral Needed

Collateral is not necessary to create Meter, making it immune to smart contract, collateral volatility, and oracle risk.

Fast and Scalable

Meter processes thousands of transactions per second with HotStuff consensus so transactions are confirmed almost instantly.

How Meter Works

Meter uses an innovative economic and consensus design that separates currency creation (Proof of Work) with record keeping (Proof of Stake). Its value is supported by the price of 10 kWh of electricity, which is more stable in purchasing power than any fiat currency in the world.

How Meter Can Be Used

Everyday Payments

Meter can be used for everyday purchases and payments, such as for your cup of coffee, a new shirt, or payments to friends and family across the world.

Store of Value

While governments are devaluing their currencies with continuous printing, Meter maintains its long-term value so you can protect your hard-earned money.

Decentralized Finance App Development

Meter is a programmable Layer 1 infrastructure that can be used as secure medium of exchange for DeFi apps, or as a sidechain for other blockchains to allow value interaction across crypto assets.

The Economics of Meter

The Metastable Currency - MTR

MTR is a low-volatility token that is created via Proof-of-Work mining and is worth 10Kwh of electricity in equilibrium.  MTR can be used to compete for newly emitted MTRG on chain. eMTR is the wrapped MTR on Ethereum

The Governance Token - MTRG

MTRG is used to validate transactions via Proof of Stake HotStuff BFT consensus and participate in the governance of the Meter network.  eMTRG is the wrapped MTRG on Ethereum
