What is Fantom (FTM)? 

Fantom is a development platform for decentralized finance developers. Like Ethereum and other layer-one blockchains, the platform supports smart contracts. But there, the similarities end. While Ethereum uses a proof-of-work consensus model, Fantom prides itself in using a unique proof-of-stake consensus model called Lachesis to validate transactions. 

Unlike the conventional block system public blockchains, Fantom uses a direct acyclic graph (DAG) system, which is a network of computer nodes relaying transaction info to each other. The owners claim the DAG system would help process more transactions faster and shorten finality, which has held to a great extent. 

Benefits of FTM

1. Fast transactions: The Fantom network processes up to 4500 transactions concurrently, but that’s not where the gist is at. The team behind Fantom has a finality time (time required till transactions get confirmed) of 1-2 seconds. By comparison, Bitcoin uses up to an hour, Ethereum up to 10 minutes. 

2. EVM compatibility- dapps built on the Ethereum network can run smoothly on the FTM, making it 

3. Staking: while the Lachesis network requires up to 1Million tokens to validate, the good news is that you can deposit your FTM in a validators pool and lock it up for some time to earn rewards.

Should you buy FTM?

Fantom is positioning itself to become one of the leading platforms for decentralized finance, and it’s not hard to see how its native utility token will fare in bull markets. FTM is available on popular crypto exchanges like Binance, Trust Wallet, and YouHodler.
