What are ApeCoin and Fantom?

ApeCoin (APE) is an ERC-20 token built on the Ethereum blockchain that enables participation in the community-driven direction of the ApeCoin DAO. Token holders will be able to access exclusive opportunities as part of the DAO. APE is also designed to facilitate new blockchain games and metaverse experiences in the Bored Ape Yacht Club ecosystem.

APE powers popular projects like Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC), Mutant Ape Club (MAC) and the Other side metaverse. If you would like to dive deeper into the Bored Ape Yacht Club and it’s ecosystem, see our in-depth guide.

Fantom (FTM) is a smart contract platform that uses a directed acyclic graph (DAG) rather than a blockchain to support a network aimed at maximizing speed and scalability.

Fantom seeks to reduce fees and increase transaction speed by using its DAG alongside a novel Proof of Stake consensus mechanism, Lachesis. The team behind Fantom developed this model to increase access to decentralized finance (DeFi).

The FTM coin is Fantom’s native utility token. It is used to secure the network, process and validate transactions, and power the DeFi suite that developers have built using the ecosystem.

If you would like to dive deeper into Fantom, see our in-depth guide.
