Meter is a layer 1, permissionless, low-volatility currency without collateral, oracle, or regulatory risk. It is fully decentralized that is anyone can create Meter through Proof-of-work mining, but no one can manipulate it. Thus it avoids counterparty and regulatory risk.
No collateral is needed, collateral is not necessary to create Meter, making it immune to smart contract, collateral volatility, and oracle risk. Meter is fast and scalable, Meter processes thousands of transactions per second so transactions are confirmed almost instantly.
How it Works?
Meter uses an innovative economic and consensus design that separates currency creation (Proof of Work) with record keeping (Proof of Stake). Its value is supported by the price of 10 kWh of electricity, which is more stable in purchasing power than any fiat money in the world.
