Welcome to Newsletter #48
This week's focus is on Proton Blockchain running on Metal Blockchain. Following earlier tweets by the team that Proton is now running on Metal testnet, the Metallicus team announced the first smart contract and first token.
Thank you for being so supportive!
What we know today is that the Metallicus team is working on porting Proton Blockchain on Metal Blockchain where it will be called A chain - there are already A, X and P chains. Just a month after the announcement of Proton running on Metal testnet we see the first contract on A chain now:
Following that, we also saw the first token issued on the A Chain (Proton) testnet:
Marshall shared a screenshot the other day of what it seems to be a Proton blockchain validator on Metal Blockchain!
At the same time the Metal blockchain bridge is also in development. Hats off to the Metallicus team for managing to balance the development of so many products in parallel and to such high standards.
In case you missed it, there is now a subreddit for Metal Blockchain and make sure you join.
The lovely chaps from Storex are about to release a beta of the e-commerce platform they are building on Proton Blockchain and we can't be more excited!
In the meantime, the team is removing a couple of coins from Metal Pay. Read more about part of the reason behind that here:
