What is Fantom?
Fantom is one of the fastest and most scalable networks, that is designed to facilitate the execution of smart contracts and decentralized applications. The Fantom network is built using a Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) protocol, allowing for faster processing of transactions than traditional blockchain networks. It provides fast transaction processing times, with block confirmations taking just one second. This processing time enables Fantom to handle a high volume of transactions and makes it an attractive platform for high-throughput dApps.
The network is highly secure, with nodes on the network utilizing a consensus mechanism called the Lachesis Protocol, which is designed to prevent double-spending and ensure network integrity. Additionally, the network's staking mechanism allows token holders to participate in securing the network by staking their tokens and earning rewards (yields) in return.
