Metis is the first Layer2 running a decentralized sequencer!
This achieves full decentralization in Layer 2 networks, eliminate single points of failure, and properly align incentives across all network participants.
Decentralized Sequencer Governance
After successful completion of the Community Testing on the testnet, we are ready to move to the next step and enable Decentralized Sequencers on the mainnet.

Read more about the governance procedures related to the Decentralized Sequencers.

For the Network
Decentralization icon
By participating in the consensus process, Sequencers play an essential role in maintaining the network’s decentralization, transparency, and stability.
Security icon
With multiple nodes or entities participating in sequencing, it becomes more challenging for malicious actors to control or compromise the order of transactions.
For the Sequencer
Rewars icon
Sequencer nodes have the opportunity to earn METIS tokens as rewards for their role in block production and transaction processing within the network.
Community icon
Active participation can increase recognition within the community, creating possibilities for future collaborations, and potential partnerships.
