Metis Ecosystem Development Program Launches

3 min readJun 21, 2021

The Metis Layer 2 Optimistic Rollup gives developers the ability to build on the Ethereum blockchain, while benefiting from 1-cent, 1-second transactions and vastly improved scalability and functionality, all in a secure, decentralized environment.

Metis has already onboarded a long list of DeFi, infrastructure, and launchpad partners, including OroPocket OpenDeFi, PARSIQ, PAID Network, and many others. To unlock the power of Layer 2 technology for even more companies, Metis is thrilled to announce the launch of the Metis Ecosystem Development Program.

The Metis Ecosystem Development Program helps existing blockchain projects, new ideas and innovations, and non-blockchain projects launched on Metis Layer 2 enjoy the low cost, high efficiency, high scalability, high functionality, and ease of use of blockchain, while making their business sustainable for the future. We aim to provide end-to-end support for all DeFi protocols and disrupting dApps: the full value chain from technology to infrastructure, helping them to scale and grow with Metis.

We have assembled a team of experienced, industry-savvy, well-connected partners and investors to help build the Metis Ecosystem Development Program. They are:

  • Autonomy Capital
  • 7 O’Clock Foundation
  • Master Ventures
  • InnMind
  • Ignition Launchpad
  • Apollo-X Launchpad
  • Ignition China

Program Benefits

Marketing and Community Construction

Spread the word in various social channels and publications to increase brand awareness, build your community ($METIS token holders are eager to contribute to the growth of Metis, and thus the growth of its partners too), connect with industry events, and engage influencers.

Launchpad Expressway

Joint Business Development

Grow your business or potential market via joint business development ventures in Asia, Europe, and North America.

Builder Mining

Grow within the Metis ecosystem, continuously receiving mining rewards in the form of $METIS tokens, based on milestones achieved. In other words, every transaction that a DApp executes on Metis Layer 2 receives $METIS token rewards.


The Metis Ecosystem Development Program will include three tracks to target different partners.

How to gain continuous Builder Mining Yields


Need to stake at least 10 $METIS tokens to participate in the mining.

Rules of Builder Mining Pool ($1M worth of $METIS tokens)

Builder mining yield allocation will be calculated as follows:

  • based on your staked $METIS tokens as a percentage of the total staked $METIS token pool
  • adjusted by a multiplier (Computation Power) determined by the tasks accomplished, which include staking $METIS tokens, deploying a smart contract on Metis Layer 2, deploying a DApp on Metis Layer 2, and more

More details to be released soon.
