xMETRIC tokens** are a beta version of MetricsDAO’s future $METRIC token. It is just for testing purposes, and cannot be transferred and does not provide its holder with any rights whatsoever (other than bragging rights about early participation in protocol testing). Think of it as monopoly money that allows us to test parts of our protocol design – with your help.
Your participation in our bounty program will help us test the key actions that community members are meant to take in order to deliver on demand analytics in near real time. As you complete certain actions you’ll earn xMETRIC, which will not only record your early contributions on-chain, but also unlock other gated actions you can take.
At the moment only some bounties as well as Peer Reviewing are gated to participants who hold at least 2,000 xMETRIC.
