Hello Protonians,

Welcome to Newsletter #31

Another turbulent week for the crypto space with a lot of fear and uncertainty. However, that cannot scare us, we similarly to the Proton team are following our agenda and keep on building new and exciting features and products. With the Proton Loan Health Monitor built and launched, we are focusing on the analytics part of Proton Live. We have been gathering metrics for the past few months and it's time to start visualizing them now and give the users a bit more insights into Proton Chain. Stay tuned to find out more.  

Thank you for your support and have a great week!


Another great episode of #Web3StartsHere hosted by Will features the teams building on Proton Chain. It was amazing to hear their stories, how they found Proton and what they are trying to achieve. Make sure you listen to the recording on Twitter spaces:

It's great to see the team's commitment and how they follow their goals regardless of the market state. When announced Proton fiat on-ramp, was advertised as it takes between 1 and 5 days for funds to arrive. The team has changed this now to say between 0 (zero) and 5 days. In other words, it takes only a few hours for the funds to arrive in your account.

Proton XPR inflation is now over 7% with the majority of long stakes contracts appreciating in June. The good news is that long staking is almost over, with 161M XPR left in contracts appreciating by the end of July 2022.

Remember, we track the inflation on a daily basis and publish it on our website:

The Proton team also announced the next episode of #Web3StartsHere that is dedicated to the launch of Meal Pay Europe:

We also saw Marshall featuring in Politico's very detailed article on regulation and lending following the freeze of withdrawal on the Celsius Network. Although he's been only quoted, it's great to see him on Politico's articles as they have a big audience of about 4.6M Twitter followers:
