Metal X Beta goes International

As we continue to make Metal X the premier cryptocurrency trading platform, one goal that we’ve been laser-focused on is international availability. Today, we’re excited to announce that Metal X will be available in many countries in and around the European Union, with more countries becoming available in the near future.

We’ll use this blog post to fully explain where Metal X is available, what you can do on Metal X, and what this means for Metal Pay and the rest of the Metal Ecosystem that we’re building.

24 countries and counting

In addition to the United States, Metal X will now be available to people in the following countries:

  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Czech Republic
  • Denmark
  • Finland
  • France
  • Germany
  • Iceland
  • Ireland
  • Italy
  • Luxembourg
  • Malta
  • Netherlands
  • Norway
  • Poland
  • Portugal
  • Romania
  • Slovakia
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland
  • Turkey
  • United Kingdom

One of the best parts of this is that the order book for Metal X is now shared for everyone in these countries. That means higher liquidity, higher activity, and a faster trading experience for all Metal X users.

We aren’t stopping there, either. We want to see more and more people brought into the Metal Ecosystem, where they can experience the life-changing effect of cryptocurrency firsthand and use the future of money like never before. We have our eyes set on other areas of the globe – stay tuned for more availability announcements as we continue to create a better way to use crypto.

Localizing our information

Traditionally, Metal has delivered its content in the English language largely because our primary audience has been English-speaking. As we work to introduce ourselves to an international audience, we’ll be striving to deliver more localized information for our users who speak a different language or have a different cultural experience. We want everyone who uses a Metal product to feel valued and heard – nobody should feel left out or forgotten.

There’s bound to be a few hiccups along the way, so we ask for your patience and understanding as we expand into this new area and bring information about cryptocurrency to new audiences. We’re confident that we can become the leading voice for cryptocurrency in more languages than ever before.

What can I do with Metal X?

We’re constantly working to make Metal X easier to use, more powerful, and more flexible than ever. Currently, Metal X offers 7 cryptocurrency trading pairs, including:

  • BCH/BTC
  • EOS/BTC
  • ETH/BTC
  • LTC/BTC
  • MTL/BTC
  • XPR/BTC
  • XRP/BTC

We plan to bring more cryptocurrencies online in the near future to give you more options. Additionally, Metal X features a dynamic fee structure: the more you trade, the less you pay. In fact, if you trade enough to be placed in our highest tier, you’ll earn a rebate on certain transactions. That’s crypto going back to you as a thank-you for being part of our family. The users who have been hanging out on our international waitlist will be the first to experience this fee structure.

Check out the detailed fee structure below.

Additionally, we plan to add more functions to Metal X in the near future as a way for you to save on fees and earn money. For example, we’re making progress on implementing a staking system inside the Metal platform – allowing you to save money for holding cryptocurrency with us, while giving you a nice bonus, too. Keep a close eye on our social media pages and blog posts to get the latest information about this and other related updates.

What does this mean for Metal Pay?

As we outlined in our Metal Pay 3.0 Roadmap, we’re dedicated to building out our ecosystem stronger than ever before. Our vision for Metal, and for the world in general, is that cryptocurrency becomes seamlessly integrated with our daily lives. Metal Pay offers a way to easily buy, sell, send, and receive cryptocurrency from your phone, while Metal X offers a more powerful and customizable trading experience.

The beauty of this ecosystem is that funds can move rapidly between Metal Pay and Metal X. We intend for these products to become much more interlinked in the coming months as we create Metal Pay 3.0. In addition, we want to bring Metal Pay to more people, and this includes an international expansion, too. We want everyone to experience all parts of the Metal Ecosystem, because we believe that it truly makes life better.

There’s another part of our ecosystem known as Proton (XPR), which you can read more about here and here. We intend for Proton to be an integral part of this ecosystem – acting as a way for all forms of money, both fiat and cryptocurrency, to move seamlessly between individuals and vendors. This would revolutionize how finance is done, and is something we’re actively building today.


Now that Metal X has expanded internationally, we want to see you use it! Head on over to Metal.exchange to join the waitlist and get next in line!
