Fantom (FTM)

Fantom is a fast, high-throughput open-source smart contract platform for digital assets and dApps. Quite a mouthful, we know. To put it plainly, it’s a thriving and growing ecosystem with thousands of active daily users. It provides Ethereum-compatible decentralized finance (DeFi) services to developers using its own bespoke consensus algorithm.

In their own words, Fantom’s aBFT consensus protocol delivers unparalleled transaction speeds (supposedly under two seconds), security, and reliability with low fees. The problems with transaction speed associated with smart contracts are what they aim to solve foremost.
