Have you ever thought how crazy it is that our user name also functions as our passsword in the traditional world of finance? Literally, our debit and credit card numbers are both the user name and the password combined into one string to our bank account.

With Proton, you take the power back and XPR is the unit of currency that drives the smart contract and oracle system underlying everything. This is a world in which you stop working for money and money starts working for you.
I'm beyond excited to announce that Proton Wallet Alpha is now available for download! This TestFlight version allows you to take our wallet for a spin and experience what we’ve been building just for you. Based on open-source SDK libraries, this non-custodial wallet allows easy staking, voting privileges, and so much more.
