Merge bridges the gap to crypto and provide a platform that will allow non-crypto developers to build apps or projects that interact with the blockchain. 
Such a platform helps forming a common ecosystem with an underlaying business logic protocol that we call The Membrane.
This common ecosystem will be based on the core concept of Merge, which is incorporating other coins and their ideas by means of a coin swap.
