Our mission.
They say the world revolves around money. But what does money revolve around? We say it revolves around people, that our desires and experiences determine its value.

Money is not the means to an end. It’s the means to a beginning. We believe in a better world, where money works for us and we don’t work for money. Where we work for beliefs, causes, and people. That’s what we do at Metal.

Let’s change the way the world views money. It’s time for a better world. It’s time for Metal.
