Proton (XPR) is now available in the Metal Pay Marketplace

We’re excited to announce that Proton (XPR), our revolutionary new cryptocurrency, is now fully available on the Metal Pay Marketplace. This means that Metal Pay users can buy, sell, send, and receive this groundbreaking cryptocurrency. Additionally, Metal Pay users have now gained access to the only way to buy this cryptocurrency directly with USD – an exclusive opportunity, just for you.

What does Proton do?

Proton is designed to function in the background across our modern economy. By verifying your identity, wrapping it in privacy, and leveraging blockchain technology, Proton allows transactions to happen effortlessly and instantly without sacrificing security. In other words, Proton will make it possible to buy something without handing over your credit card or bank account information – a radical departure from our current way of trusting every vendor with this valuable information.

We’re also building Proton to act as a bridge between cryptocurrency and traditional finance, allowing funds to flow in and out of these two seemingly disconnected ecosystems without missing a beat. Never before has cryptocurrency been as useful as what XPR is designed to do.

What are the next steps for Proton?

We’re working hard to integrate Proton wherever you use money, protecting your identity, privacy, and finances every step of the way. Our next step in this process was launching the Proton mainnet – which has now occurred. With mainnet live, you can reserve your very own @name, which will be used to verify your identity in future transactions.

Getting the @name that you want is very important; check out our full blog post explaining why this is such a big deal.

How do I get Proton?

Now that Proton is available on the Metal Pay Marketplace, owning some of this bleeding-edge cryptocurrency is as simple as opening your app, tapping over to the Cryptocurrency Marketplace, and placing your order. Additionally, Metal Pay users are welcome to sell XPR on our Marketplace, send some to a friend, or transfer it to a compatible external wallet. Finally, we’ve made price history charts available in the Metal Pay app for XPR – so tracking the trends of this new cryptocurrency has never been easier.

With availability in most of the United States, and more locations becoming available very soon, Android and iOS users just got access to the hottest new cryptocurrency – all from the comfort of their phone.

Still have questions about what Proton is or what it can do? Be on the lookout for more content about XPR over on the Proton Twitter page. Got questions for us about how our app works? Let our [Support Team[(https://twitter.com/metalhelpsme) give you a hand.

We have a lot of exciting updates on the way, so stay tuned to make sure you don’t miss a beat. Keep a close eye on our social media accounts to get the latest news and announcements: Twitter | Instagram | Facebook.

🤘 Your friends at Metal 🤘
