Metal Pay

More coins coming to Metal Pay this week, mainnet deposits & withdrawals for HBAR, SAND, and UNI are now live!

Proton Loan

Well, a lot of people staked a minimum of one week when the staking went live. Some members of the community took this even further by staking for a period of 4 years! The LOAN supply page has been also updated to reflect all these metrics now:

Make sure you vote on this telegram poll whether Proton team should add a 200M LOAN reward with each new asset added to the platform:

Marshall in Proton Loan - LOAN
Should we add LOAN rewards for new assets we add to the protocol? XUSDT, etc50m LOAN / 100m LOAN / 200m LOAN / 0 LOAN

Also in the telegram chat, Marshall mentioned that the team is also exploring deflation mechanisms for LOAN. It's great to watch how the platform develops and also be part of it.


Sebastian who was part of ProNFT marketplace has now moved on and released another cool and useful product running on Proton Chain - Proton Rewards. It helps creators automatically share rewards between NFT holders:

And another week with Proton Mint releasing update - 3D NFTs are not supported on Proton Mint:

We finally see another NFT marketplace coming to life - SOON.MARKET. We first heard about them not long time ago, make sure you check their Twitter timeline and the their marketplace that looks really cool:


We couldn't be happier and more grateful! It was only last week that we reached 800M votes and earlier this week we reached 900M votes! We couldn't do it without your support. Thank you all πŸ™
