What is Fantom?

Copy link to section

Fantom is a decentralised payment platform that provides fast and low-cost transactions. The Fantom network was created as an alternative to Ethereum and uses a unique consensus mechanism called Lachesis, which allows it to process thousands of transactions per second.

Its native cryptocurrency, FTM, is used to pay for transactions and participate in its governance. The Fantom ecosystem includes many decentralised applications (dApps), a decentralised exchange (DEX), and a lending platform.

How does Fantom work?

Copy link to section

Fantom works similarly to many other blockchain projects, where transactions are grouped into ‘blocks’ before being linked via chains, forming a blockchain.

It uses a unique consensus mechanism called Lachesis and is compatible with a few other blockchains, including Ethereum and Binance Chain. FTM uses a proof of stake model, which means other users on the network verify all transactions and are rewarded with tokens for their work.

How is the Fantom network secured?

Copy link to section

It is secured by other users on the network. Fantom uses a proof of stake mechanism, which means users on the network verify and secure all transactions. This is known as staking, which involves users staking their FTM tokens to participate in the network’s security process. For their work in ensuring network security, stakers are rewarded with coins.

What is Fantom used for?

Copy link to section

The Fantom platform is used for decentralised applications (dApps) and its fast processing means it is also used for decentralised finance (DeFi) applications and payments.

Developers can create and build their own smart contract applications using the Solidity programming language, which is most commonly used on the Ethereum ecosystem. This means the Fantom network has multiple uses, including trading, lending, borrowing, payments, and governance.

Why does FTM have value?

Copy link to section

It has value for several reasons; its unique consensus mechanism Lachesis is much faster and has more robust security than other proof of stake based platforms. Its speed and security could drive the number of developers using the network, which in turn would likely increase FTM’s value.

FTM can also be used as a store of value, much like larger cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. Short-term investors or traders can also speculate on its price fluctuations as it is a volatile token.

Who created Fantom?
