Fantom is a high-performance public chain (compatible with Ethernet virtual machine) based on DAG technology and supporting smart contracts, which is dedicated to solving the problems of poor scalability and inefficiency of existing blockchains.

3.Token role

FTM token has several roles in Fantom’s ecology, which are indispensable for a well-working and healthy network.

  • Ensure the security of the network: Fantom uses a PoS system that requires the authenticator to hold FTM. 2.
  • Paying for the network: To compensate verifiers for their services and prevent transaction fraud, each action on the Fantom network consumes a small fee, which is paid in FTM.
  • Voting for in-chain governance: Fantom eco-related decisions are decided through transparent in-chain voting.
  • Other uses: FTM will be used as collateral in the future Fantom DeFi suite.
