7 Reasons to Build on Metis

6 min readMay 17, 2022

Metis is a well-known advocate for builders and the community, and we want to bring the best products and opportunities for those we advocate for. Thus we are very excited to be hosting an upcoming Rollathon alongside Github. This will be a great way to incentivize both the creation of dApps that bring something missing to the ecosystem, and better tools for the dApps, which will provide end users an overall better user experience.

For Metis, 2022 has been a year full of building, in which not only have we been able to deliver everything that has been proposed in our Roadmap, but we’ve achieved unthinkable milestones as well. Memolabs-based decentralized storage marks the beginning of a whole new era for Ethereum Layer 2s, as Metis positions itself at the forefront of innovation, tackling and solving one of the 7 “Not-yet-fully-solved challenges in rollups” shared by Vitalik Buterin in “An incomplete guide into rollups” (Jan 2021).

Next in our Roadmap

Next in our roadmap, we have other vicious milestones that include launching our Peer Network, Ranger System, fully functional Polis Middleware, and the release of our DAC Framework. So, YEAH. There’s a lot coming in 2022.

We plan to release a community-oriented DAC template very soon. This will enable community members to:

  • Create their DAC
  • Manage membership
  • Manage multisig safe wallets
  • Make investment or operation decisions collectively
  • Down the road: Mint tokens and NFTs, Manage Payrolls, and much more

VERY exciting stuff. More DAC templates will be released soon afterwards.

Foremost, why build in Metis Andromeda?

The real question would be, where should we start?

In the light of recent events, there’s been 2 things proven:

  1. There is no such thing as an Ethereum killer
  2. The role of Layer 2 solutions will only grow with time

Since Metis is already tackling the 7 not-yet-fully-solved challenges in rollups, we thought we can give you all a nice 7 reasons-to-build-in-Metis. Let’s start with one of the favorites:
