3. Fantom ($FTM) — $8 Million Market Cap


Fantom Project Breakdown


Tackling a tale and issue as old as time in blockchain — scalability — South Korea-based Fantom is the world’s first Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) based smart contract platform.


First, you’re probably wondering what


a DAG is? In the wild


world of blockchain, DAGs are the “new kid on the block,” combining concepts of various blockchains such as Proof-of- Work (PoW) and Proof-of-Stake (PoS), and the longest chain rule.

scalability on a decentralized network.


Specifically, Fantom is aiming to become the first platform to disrupt today’s existing blockchain infrastructure for payments and supply chain manag ement , and it boasts the following features:


• Theoretic I n f i n ite Scalability: As more nodes join and participate in Fantom’s network, its p ro c e ss i n g power and c a p a b i l i t i e s increase.


Do however note that Fantom’s DAG does not implement PoW, and instead achieves consensus via a gossip based protocol.


You can think of DAGs as a collection of nodes which ultimately represent a specific “thing,” and are connected by directed edges rather than by a “loop” or cycles.”


Simply put, DAGs are one- way streets


that can never be


returned to, ultimately allowing for higher


throughput and


• Instantaneous Payments: Unlike the blockchains of Cardano and EOS, transactions on Fantom are executed asynchronously and with instantaneous confirmation.


• Near Zero Cost Transaction Fees: For transfers from one wallet to another, transaction fees are less than USD $.01.


Furthermore, Fantom has developed their own consensus algorithm, known as the “Lachesis Protocol,” which
