A letter from our CEO

Our vision at Metal has always been to create an ecosystem for everyday people to learn about, use, and have fun with cryptocurrency. We think that cryptocurrency is better when more people can participate, which is why we’ve created all of our products to be radically user-friendly.

This vision started with Metal Pay, which was built to be the easiest on-ramp to cryptocurrency. Through Metal Pay, our users gained access to an FDIC-insured cash account, a way to buy and sell over 30 different cryptocurrencies, and a way to send crypto to friends.

Metal X is the next step in this progression. On this platform, users will encounter the full cryptocurrency trading experience, built with the Metal difference you’ve come to expect. Every part of this site was intuitively designed to give you fewer headaches and more confidence.

You’ll also find Metal University hosted on this site, our new approach to teaching the masses about cryptocurrency. We understand that many of the concepts that are central to cryptocurrency have seemed confusing and convoluted, which is why we’re doing whatever we can to break it down in a way that’s useful and easy to understand.

Everything that we do at Metal is to promote the greater good of cryptocurrency. From advocating for improved regulations, to building a beautiful new exchange, we’re committed to making cryptocurrency better each and every day. We believe that cryptocurrency will be central to humanity’s story moving forward, and we can’t wait to see where you will fit into that story.

Take your time to look around our new exchange. We spent countless hours preparing it just for you, and we’ll continue to make it more agile, more capable, and more powerful every chance we get. We’ve created how-to videos and articles all about Metal X to help walk you through every part of our exchange. If there’s anything we can do to help you as you familiarize yourself with Metal X please don’t hesitate to reach out to our Support Team on Twitter: @MetalHelpsMe.
