Fantom is a fast, scalable and secure blockchain ecosystem powered by an innovative consensus algorithm called Lachesis.
Fantom’s smart contract functionality allows any dApp to run on its permissionless base layer, such as DeFi applications. EVM support makes it easy to port dApps over from Ethereum and a faster Virtual Machine is currently in the works.
Lachesis is Fantom’s consensus mechanism.
It is an aBFT consensus algorithm that is:
FTM powers Fantom.
Its main use case is securing the network via staking. The more FTM is staked, the more assets can be secured on the Fantom blockchain. FTM can also be used as collateral for Fantom DeFi applications, for instance to mind fUSD.
FTM also gives governance rights to token holders to decide on the future of the network.
The total supply is 3,175,000,000 FTM.
The current circulating supply is 2,379,963,131 FTM
Yes, FTM is available as an ERC20, BEP2 and native Opera mainnet token.
However, only the mainnet token can be used for staking. The total supply is fixed at 3,175,000,000 FTM across all token types.
You can stake as little as 1 FTM.
The delegated fee is set to 15% for all validators, however we give back to our delegators through a degressive fee program – the more you stake, the less fees you pay – and through an automatic lottery that runs every epoch, approximately every 4 hours. With these incentives, your net fee is less than 15%.
As a cautionary note, delegators can have their tokens slashed if the validator misbehaves. Make sure to stake with a node you trust. A transparent, engaged team is a good sign to look for.
We are a staking service provider with a focus on community engagement. We build software, tools, and other cool stuff. We offer a degressive fee program and a free lottery to our stakers.
The more you stake, the less you pay in fees.
The following structure applies:
We draw one lucky winner every epoch (~4 hours).
So far, we distributed 5% of the node’s commission fee to our stakers.
We will continue building tools to bring value to Fantom, including the long-awaited referral program through which you can earn FTM rewards for referring other stakers.
