Fantom is a smart-contract platform that is high-performing, scalable, EVM-compatible, and secure.
Fantom Opera, the mainnet deployment, is based on Fantom's consensus method, Lachesis. Fantom is a fault-tolerant Layer 1 blockchain system that is leaderless, asynchronous, and byzantine.
Fantom is able to provide rapid transaction speeds, cheap transaction costs, and deterministic finality thanks to Lachesis. While staying permissionless, decentralized, and open-source, this is accomplished.
Fantom addresses the root of the problem: our Lachesis high-speed consensus method enables digital assets to function at unprecedented speeds, delivering significant advantages over conventional systems.
Unlike other alternatives, Fantom does not prioritize scale above security and decentralization.
Fantom's benefits go beyond sheer efficiency; its modular design enables comprehensive customization of blockchains for digital assets, with varied properties adapted to their use-case.
Fantom also provides superior security by securing the network with a leaderless Proof-of-Stake protocol.
Lachesis, Fantom's aBFT consensus, may scale to many nodes throughout the world in a permissionless, open environment, allowing for a high degree of decentralization. It has no notion of "Masternodes" and does not employ Delegated Proof of Stake.
