TRON has teamed up with US-based digital remittance firm Metal Pay, enabling the latter’s users to gain access to its TRX token.

The alliance results in the integration of TRX into Metal Pay’s mobile app.

As a result, users of Metal Pay will be able to buy TRX with fiat currency, debit card, or by linking it to the bank account.

TRON Foundation CEO and founder Justin Sun said: “With Metal Pay, we have created the fastest TRX transaction infrastructure while maintaining world-class security.”

TRON users utilising the Metal Pay app can get a maximum of 5% cashback. The cashback will be delivered in Metal’s MTL cryptocurrency.

Metal Pay supports crypto-to-crypto conversions between more than 20 digital currencies.

It now supports TRX, offering its users exposure to other virtual currencies including BTC, ETH, and MTL.

Metal founder and CEO Marshall Hayner said: “TRON’s addition to Metal Pay provides their community with a bold new DeFi platform.

“Home to a variety of developers, dApps, and more, the products that Metal is building will accelerate the growth of the cryptocurrency ecosystem.

“I believe that TRON shows incredible promise for blockchain technology and decentralised systems, and I’m excited about the chance to work with them as we build the future.”
