What is Metis?

Metis is an L2 smart contract platform for decentralized applications on Ethereum. Metis was founded by Kevin Liu, Elena Sinelnikova, and Yuan Su, and launched in 2021.

How does Metis work?

Metis batches users' transactions and submits them to Ethereum, paying a share of the transaction fees to Ethereum validators (expense).

Who governs Metis?

METIS tokenholders own and govern the protocol. They currently run the only sequencer and take a cut of the total transaction fees paid by users (revenue). Metis' investors include Master Ventures, Digital Finance Group, Momentum 6, etc.
