Metal & Lynx have officially merged!

We are thrilled to announce that, as of today, Metal and Lynx have officially merged into one team! This is one of the largest mergers in the cryptocurrency industry and a signal of amazing things to come. Additionally, this was a merger that was carried out in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis without missing a stride – a unique example of how flexible and adaptable cryptocurrency companies can be.

Metal Founder and CEO Marshall Hayner was immediately impressed with what the Lynx team had built once he saw how their products worked. Lynx is one of the most established and experienced decentralized application (dApp) developers in the world, and they have a reputation for creating high functioning and beautiful products.

“I immediately recognized that Lynx had the design and engineering chops to build not only a beautiful Metal/Apple like product but also completely understood the concept of usability and beautiful UI and design.” – Marshall Hayner, CEO of Metal

The Lynx team was equally impressed with what they saw at Metal, and were eager to join us in creating the future of finance. Metal has established a reputation of making inroads for the cryptocurrency community – whether that be through speaking to Congress, increasing crypto usability, or lowering barriers to entry.

“We are thrilled to join Metal. Our two teams share a common vision for blockchain based payments and we’re going to surprise the world with how easy it really can be.” – Fred Krueger, Executive Chairman of Metal

Lynx brings a powerhouse of developers ready to design and produce attractive, functional, and powerful products for users throughout the United States and around the world. Additionally, the combination of our teams will allow us to devote more resources to the creation of Proton (XPR) – a groundbreaking solution to the various problems plaguing the financial industry. For more information about Proton, check out our quick explanations of what Proton can do and browse the Protonchain website.

Mark May 18th, 2020 in your calendars as the day that the future got one giant leap closer. Now that Metal and Lynx have officially joined forces, what happens next will recreate how the world thinks about money, security, and privacy.

“Our long term vision: Metal is the next Stripe. Only this time, payments are not insecure and they are built on Proton and blockchain rails, everything completely interoperable, not just blockchain interoperability, but full global banking and financial interoperability.” Marshall Hayner, Founder / CEO of Metal & Proton

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 give you a hand.
