Hello Protonians,

Welcome to Newsletter #18.

Another week passed. You know how people say time flies but in crypto, you blink and it's next week already. There is so much happening on so many social media that it's hard to keep up. While Metal Pay and Proton Loan have been quiet this week, we bring a lot of good stuff for Proton ⚛

Enjoy the newsletter and thank you for reading!


Earlier today Will dropped a hint in the telegram chat that there will be two big milestones announced next week. We are so excited and wonder what that could be !?

We also got to know the second guest on the Proton podcast show next week. Chris Maurice, the founder of the Yellowcard app will be speaking with Marshall about the future of crypto. That would be a conversation not to be missed so make sure you attend!

Finally, you can now swap XUSDC to XUSDT on Protonswap with minimal slippage:

There is now an estimated APR, should you decide to provide liquidity on Protonswap. The APR is based on the last 24hrs of volume, that's excluding any potential impermanent loss:

We finally see TaxBit updating their infographic to include Proton. However, the integration with Proton/ wallet is not ready yet. If you need to extract your transactions you can use to extract raw data and then format it in the appropriate format in Excel:

There isn't much to share on Metal Pay, Proton Loan. Proton Loan TVL has increased significantly since last week up to $19M which is great news as the platform is steadily growing.

  • Price change based on Thursday close price using latest data in range (UTC)
  • Loan data source: Protonscan (Alcor exchange + Protonswap)

This week's Tweet of the week goes to HunterX again and his tweet on how amazing the Proton XPR community is. We couldn't agree more and we are so grateful and proud to be part of it 🙏
