This year promises to be a transformative one as we continue to push the boundaries of what is possible in blockchain and decentralized finance. This leads us to introduce the updated Roadmap of projects that the core developer, Metallicus, has committed to continue developing in the Proton Blockchain Ecosystem in order to maintain our commitment to staying on the cutting edge of new technology.
After the successful passing of the Proton Development Proposal, the first priority is to deliver the Proton Governance Dashboard, which will enable the community to more easily help to shape the future of the Proton Blockchain.
The roadmap includes additional projects, such as the Proton / Ethereum NFT Bridge, a Proof of Reserves & Liabilities Dashboard, Proton Payment Streaming, a PSR upgrade (inc. WebAuth notifications), an ISO20022 Compliance Demo, Proton Invoicing, and last but not least, a new home for every Metallicus dApp on Proton Blockchain.
