About Fantom

Fantom is a decentralized platform that provides instant transaction speed and scalable dApp development. The Fantom Foundation was founded in 2018 by Michael Kong, Dr. Ahn Byung Ik, and Dr. James Ahn. Fantom uses the Lachesis consensus protocol and operates on a Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) ledger. The Fantom Opera Network is powered by the native FTM token.

Fantom Network

The key difference between Fantom and other blockchains is that it uses DAG technology instead of blockchain technology. With DAG, each new transaction confirms two previous transactions, which allows for much faster transaction speeds than traditional blockchains.

Fantom also has its own programming language, called FantomFlow. FantomFlow is designed to be easy to use for developers of all levels of experience. This programming language is compatible with Ethereum's native programming language Solidity, which means applications are portable across both chains.

The Fantom Opera Network is still in development, but the foundation has already partnered with businesses and organizations such as the United Nations, Microsoft, and PwC. The team is working on various use cases for the network, including supply chain management, payments, and identity management.
