Metronome aims to optimize for self-governance, reliability, and portability. Founded by a number of veterans in the space (e.g. Jeff Garzik, Matthew Roszak), Metronome is founded on three key design principles:
- Self-governance with no undue influence from founders after initial launch and public access — contract governance starts at launch.
- Reliability and predictability where issuance and supply are immutable
- Portability to enable maximum decentralization, even across different blockchains. The first ‘chainhop’ took place in summer 2019, between Ethereum and Ethereum Classic
