Token Description & Project Background
Metal Pay is a mobile payments platform focused on cryptocurrencies, operating within the Metal Ecosystem. Designed with a user-friendly interface similar to popular apps like Venmo and CashApp, Metal Pay aims to provide a comprehensive payments infrastructure, enabling users to effortlessly send both cash and crypto to friends and family. According to Messari, all cash balances held within the Metal Pay app are insured by the Federal Depsoit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), offering users added security. Users have the option to transact using their existing balance or link their bank details. Furthermore, the cash balance can be utilized to purchase digital assets through Metal’s in-app marketplace and can be withdrawn at any time.
MTL serves as the native token of the Metal Pay platform. Users are rewarded with 5% of their total transaction volume in MTL and can also benefit from discounts when making payments and purchasing digital assets on the platform.
