Fantom (CCC:FTM-USD) is in the crypto spotlight today, as engagement on Stocktwits around the cryptocurrency is steadily rising. The FTM crypto first became tradable in 2018 and has since risen by over 15,000%. At the time of writing, FTM crypto is the 29th largest crypto based on its market capitalization of $6.7 billion. Furthermore, the crypto is roughly $350 million away from passing Stellar, the 28th largest crypto, (CCC:XLM-USD).
Fantom operates as decentralized and open-source layer-1 blockchain that is powered by the Lachesis consensus mechanism. Lachesis uses a proof-of-stake structure that enables transactions to be quick, secure and scalable.

Crypto users are reportedly tired of slow transaction times and high transaction fees.
Furthermore, smart contracts are also accessible on the Fantom blockchain. A smart contract is a program stored on a blockchain that runs when predetermined requirements are completed.
