Metallic blockchain is a layer 0 blockchain that allows all chains to deploy and reach consensus using the Snow protocol. It allows chains to operate on a highly efficient proof-of-stake (PoS) model. Necessary information about their tokens can be found on the MEXC digital asset introduction page.


What are The Four Subchains in Metal Blockchain?

EVM (C Chain)

The C-chain manages the Ethereum virtual machine. It also deploys Solidity contracts that are interoperable with currencies in a trustless environment.

Exchange (X Chain)

Exchange handles cross-chain exchanges and sub-chain transfers.

Stake (P Chain)

The P-chain allows bettors to validate the Metal network. It also delegates authentication to other validators to earn staking rewards.

Proton (A Chain)

Proton processes payments more efficiently. This includes DeFi, dApps, DAOs, banks, and Fintech.
