Recently, Year (YFI) founder Andre Cronje (AC) has repeatedly posted content related to the Fantom public chain in his Twitter. At least 5 of the Twitter content released on August 30 are related to Fantom. He publicly expressed his support for its ecological development. In addition, on Fantom’s official website, AC also appeared in the team member introduction as Fantom’s “Chief DeFi Architect”.
With the blessing of AC Halo, the Fantom ecological token FTM has increased by as much as 100% in the past week, and reached a maximum of US$0.965 on the evening of September 1st, and has now fallen back to around US$0.86.
The rise of FTM is not only due to the celebrity effect of AC, but more importantly, the ecological incentive plan recently announced by the Fantom Foundation. On August 30, the Fantom Foundation stated that it would invest 370 million FTMs to encourage ecological development, and funds worth nearly US$260 million will be used to reward ecological applications with a locked-up volume (TVL) of more than US$200 million.
Subsequently, AC tweeted that it would airdrop FTM to users who have used Anyswap, Polygon, Avalanche, Ren Protocol and other cross-chain bridges to pay for cross-chain fees.
Why is Fantom being favored by the “King of DeFi” AC? What are its advantages?
Fantom (FTM) is a high-performance public chain based on DAG (Directed Acyclic Graph Distributed Database) technology that supports smart contracts. It aims to solve the problems of scalability and processing time of existing blockchain technology. The biggest difference between it and other public chains is the change in the storage of transaction data brought about by DAG technology. The simple understanding is that Fantom supports multiple nodes. The more nodes join, the faster the speed and the greater the scalability.
In Fantom, each transaction information can become a unit, and the unit can be arbitrarily connected to each other for verification. There is no need to merge the transactions and package them into blocks like the general blockchain to complete the transaction, thus increasing the amount of transaction concurrency , Realizing instant transaction.
In addition, since Fantom is compatible with the Ethereum EVM virtual machine, Ethereum’s DeFi application can be translated to the public chain with one click, and enjoy the low rate and high-speed transactions of the public chain.
At present, Fantom Project data shows that the total lock-up amount (TVL) of the chain has risen to 695 million US dollars, of which 430 million US dollars are derived from native applications. In fact, as early as April this year, a team on Fantom was building DeFi applications in the ecosystem, such as SpiritSwap, ZooCoin, and so on. How are they developing today? What new applications have been born on the chain? This issue of DeFi Honeycomb will sort out the mainstream DeFi in Fantom ecology.
