Beyond Blockchain

The Future of Decentralized Ecosystem


Our Values

FANTOM is the world's first DAG based smart contract platform that solves the issue of scalability and confirmation time of the existing blockchain technology.
FANTOM TPS Performance

300k TPS

Other Blockchain Platforms

Instant Payment

Unlike those of EOS and Cardano, transactions on the FANTOM platform are executed asynchronously with instant confirmation.

less $0.01

Near Zero Cost

Transaction fee is less than 0.01 USD from one wallet to another.

Infinite Scalability

As more nodes participate in the network, its processing capability increases.


The FANTOM platform is open-sourced for transparency and trust.


Improved version of a DAG model for speed and infinite scalability.

The OPERA Chain

Instead of blocks, the OPERA Chain processes a list of events asynchronously with no rights to modify previous confirmed transactions.


The Lachesis Protocol

Transactions are confirmed with a DAG to maintain consensus within the decentralized FANTOM network.


Story Data

Every transaction and smart contract function may store a piece of data for tracking and supply-chain management.
