👻What Is Fantom?👻

Fantom was founded in early 2018 by Ahn Byung Ik. that Fantom is more frequently associated with Andre Cronje, the famous South Africa DeFi developer who created the protocol In the beginning, Fantom’s focus was to create a cryptocurrency that would be suitable for smart cities. To that end, Fantom touted it’s theoretical speed of 300 thousand transactions per second Today, Fantom has turned its focus to DeFi and enterprise solutions relating to supply chain tracking healthcare, tokenized assets, and of course, CBDCs

👨‍🏫How Does Fantom Work?👨‍🏫

Instead of a blockchain, Fantom uses something called a directed acyclic graph or DAG for short This is a type of distributed ledger technology that allows any computer connected to the network to process transactions in parallel This set up makes it possible for Fantom to process ‘thousands of transactions per second.’ This is a far cry from the 300k TPS the team initially promised

⛓Fantom Staking⛓

Validator nodes on Fantom must put down a minimum stake of 1 million FTM. Delegators only need to put down 1 FTM and delegation is easily done through Fantom’s web wallet Fantom staking rewards for validators and delegators depend on how long they lock up their FTM for. This can be anywhere from a day to 1 year

💱Fantom DeFi💱

Fantom technically has two DeFi ecosystems. The first is Fantom Finance, and it is designed to be a one stop shop for everything DeFi It features synthetic assets that can be bought and sold using fUSD, a synthetic stablecoin that can be minted using FTM or staked FTM Obviously, Fantom Finance has it’s limits, which is why Fantom has a second DeFi ecosystem consisting of some of the most popular Ethereum DeFi protocols such as Sushiswap and Curve Finance

Even though FTM’s price looks pretty dismal at the moment, its one of the few cryptocurrencies on the market that’s fully functional. It also checks all the boxes in terms of tokenomics With a market cap of just 600 million at the time of shooting, taking FTM back to it’s all time high of 90 ish cents would not be very difficult
