All of these types of projects are eligible to apply, and all of them can enjoy the low cost, high efficiency, high scalability, high functionality, and ease of use of blockchain, while making their business sustainable for the future. The program is open to all sorts of blockchain projects, though Metis has seen the highest levels of adoption among DeFi companies.

The Metis Ecosystem Development Program includes three tracks to target different kinds of partners: existing blockchain projects, existing non-blockchain projects, and blockchain startups.
