Forward’s no-code dApp builder, featuring a front-end with a drag-and-drop interface that allows any user to deploy customized applications without technical knowledge, has completed a chain integration with MetisDAO, an EVM-compatible Layer-2 solution, designed to provide the infrastructure required to migrate all business models from Web2 to Web3.

The Forward-Metis chain integration will allow anyone to deploy customizable dApps on Metis’ affordable L2 network to leverage its decentralization, scalability, and security solutions on the Ethereum mainnet, regardless of their technical experience.

This integration will also allow developers to create and upload functional smart contract templates to Forward Factory and earn rewards from deployment fees on Metis.

Mitch Rankin, Forward Co-Founder, said:

“We can now do so much on the blockchain because Visionary projects like Metis provide a viable solution to the blockchain trilemma. With the trilemma resolved, projects like Forward can now focus on other problems, such as removing the technicality barrier. Together, we provide a non-technical path to access the opportunities available through truly secure, scalable, and decentralized networks.”

“This integration marks a significant milestone for both platforms, as it enables users to build and deploy full-stack dApps on any EVM and Rust-based chain of their choice, thus opening up more possibilities for creators to build and launch their projects, ultimately leading to greater innovation and adoption of decentralized technologies,” said Metis L2 Lead Tom Ngo.
