Despite the leading position among blockchains for building decentralised applications (dApps), Ethereum is often blamed for high gas fees and insufficient throughput.  

MetisDAO (METIS) is an Ethereum Layer 2 rollup platform. It aims to address Ethereum's transaction speeds, cost, scalability and affordable storage.

It’s native token, METIS, has been highly volatile since the start of the year. The METIS crypto price reached its all-time high of $323 on 16 January 2022. The retracement sent it to $102.75 on 31 January, according to CoinMarketCap. Although the token has regained some of its losses, it is still trading more than 50% below its peak (as of 15 February).

Can the METIS token price rebound and test new highs in 2022? Let’s take a look at the project’s fundamentals and development to get a clearer view of a metisDAO price prediction.

MetisDAO (METIS) price prediction

What is MetisDAO?

Metis is a Layer 2 scaling protocol for Ethereum applications that allows faster and cheaper transactions. It also facilitates the creation of a scalable and multipurpose framework for apps and businesses transitioning from Web 2.0 to Web 3.0

Layer 2 refers to protocols that aid in application scalability by processing transactions outside the Ethereum Mainnet (layer 1) while preserving the mainnet's security and decentralisation.

Metis aims to make developing decentralised applications (dApps) and decentralised autonomous companies (DACs) on its platform easy and straightforward, especially for blockchain novices.

The platform has various use cases: supporting users to build their own NFT minting and trading business, yield farming, launchpad, decentralised exchange (DEX), investment business or their own token. Metis is well-suited for powering the sharing economy through dApps that offer affordable and speedy micropayments.

“At Metis, we believe the future lies in the decentralised, autonomous management of day-to-day operations in a decentralised organisation called a Decentralised Autonomous Company (DAC): a system entity that supports an organisation’s day-to-day operations, including those of large scale enterprises,” said Metis in its whitepaper.

Elena Sinelnikova, co-founder and CEO of Metis, explained her vision of a DAC in a tweet:

Metis is focused on the ecosystem's overall speed and security. It employs sequencers and L2 Rangers. These rangers work as paid auditors to ensure that transactions and withdrawals on and from its Layer 2 solution are swift and secure.

METIS is the network's native utility token. It performs three critical services inside Metis' L2 platform: transaction fees, staking and rewards.

MetisDAO news and price drivers

The project has undergone a number of significant milestones and developments lately, which may drive the METIS coin value.

Strategic Partnership with Tristan metaverse

Metis Labs, a member of the Genesi DAC venture capital investor network, announced a strategic alliance with Tristan Metaverse in January 2022. 

Tristan Metaverse is a social media-enabled, open metaverse centred on planetary systems that offers a unique gaming experience to Web 3.0 users.

According to the official statement, this relationship will benefit the Metis ecosystem's advancement, community design and engagement through the Metis open protocol for DApp deployment and development.

“Metis is an answer to what Layer 2 is lacking. It is shaping up to be an ecosystem capable of filling the colossal void in the Layer 2 marketplace that we want to take part in. Tristan’s focus is to make crypto gaming mainstream. The aim is to lower the barrier of entry to the GameFi revolution and build an ecosystem where players and creators get rewarded and ultimately, have fun,” said Tristan CEO Frank L. 

Partnership with PAID Network

Metis partnered with PAID Network in June 2021 to develop the Apollo-X IDO platform and the Ignition launchpad swapping protocol on Metis' Layer 2 infrastructure, resulting in decreased gas prices, higher transaction speeds, and expandable functionality.

Additionally, PAID joined the Metis ecosystem development programme and offered investment, money, technical expertise and launchpad assistance for companies operating in the Metis Layer 2 ecosystem.

Kyle Chasse, CEO of PAID Network, said: “Metis’ Layer 2 solution, called the Metis Rollup, makes building and running dApps much cheaper and much more efficient, while providing far greater scalability and a higher level of functionality than Ethereum alone can offer. Metis’ Layer 2 solution will allow us to scale Apollo-X and Ignition even further and provide a more cost-effective and efficient user experience for both communities.”

Strategic Partnership with PARSIQ

Metis established a strategic partnership with PARSIQ in June 2021 to develop DeFi functionalities and infrastructure partners ahead of its Beta testnet launch.

PARSIQ is a blockchain monitoring and workflow automation platform that acts as a multi-tiered connection point between blockchains and off-chain applications.

Metis' ecosystem benefited from PARSIQ's data stream processing solution, enabling projects built on Metis Layer 2 to benefit from real-time data verification, enhanced market activity analytic, and extra security features required for DeFi projects.

PARSIQ-supported applications benefited from the huge throughput, capabilities, expandability, and simplicity of use improvements provided by the Metis Layer 2 rollup over Ethereum Layer 1.

Collaboration with OpenDeFi

In June 2021, Metis secured a partnership with OpenDeFi just before its testnet's debut. OpenDeFi tokenises physical assets and then provides decentralised financial services on top of them. OpenDeFi's mission is to establish and support DeFi-related initiatives, to empower DeFi marketplaces across a broad variety of digital asset classes.

This collaboration helped OpenDeFi in its aim of supporting a broader range of digital asset types. Metis and OpenDeFi seek to link institutional money with the DeFi world.

Is metisDAO a good investment?

MetisDAO has emerged as a Layer 2 Ethereum scaling solution, enabling the development of a highly scalable protocol for next-generation decentralised applications (dApps).

How high can the metis coin go?

According to the METIS/USD forecast from Price Prediction (as of 15 February 2022), it could go as high as $5,530.29 in 2031. Note that algorithm-based price targets can prove to be wrong.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
