(Spin Digit Editorial):- Miami, Florida Feb 16, 2022 ( – METL is introducing the first decentralized fiat gateway infrastructure of its kind bridging Web 2 to Web3 in collaboration with Prime Trust. METL’s roots date back to 2018 when the first MVP was built, using a POA side chain to demonstrate to the US banks, how quickly you can settle an ACH transaction with a token on the blockchain.

The METL Token USDR (USD Receipt) will be the first decentralized native token on Avalanche due to its EVM compatibility, cost-effective transactions, and innovative consensus algorithm.

We recognised the growing need in the ACH industry for more advanced technology to settle transactions and move into the digital world more efficiently. We have developed a solution that marries the ACH world to Web3, where an ERC20 token is configured to be used as a utility and with a short life span before it enters the DEFI world.

Our solution is backed by Prime Trust, an all-in-one financial infrastructure provider powering the world’s leading crypto and fintech innovators. With the METL solution users are the issuers of tokens, sending ACH to Cross River Bank through Prime Trust’s API integration. Based on METL proprietary API, METL then mints a stable token receipt on the Avalanche blockchain and sends it to any web3 wallet such as Metamask.

METL has received 10 Money Transmitter exemptions and can start operating immediately in the following states: Arkansas, California, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Utah, Wisconsin with more in the pipeline.

“METL is doing something truly unique with its patented Infrastructure for FIAT gateway in the US,  creating the first Bank to Web3 decentralized access,” said Daniel Berman, Director, Institutional Sales, Prime Trust. “As the leading backend infrastructure provider for FinTech, Prime Trust empowers innovators such as METL via a comprehensive API-driven ecosystem.”

To access our platform, users need a USDR (USD Receipt) token which is stable and pegged 1:1 by deposits in our bank account to be fully collateralized. The METL team is currently building a node operator network to decentralize the management of the USDR (USD Receipt) token to incentivise the node operators.

METL will start opening a whitelist for the beta in March 2022. You can join our waitlist here.
