Fantom is a decentralized, open-source, smart contract platform that aims to provide fast, secure, and scalable infrastructure for decentralized applications (dApps).

The platform is designed as a next-generation blockchain platform to address several limitations of existing blockchains. Lachesis, a revolutionary aBFT consensus protocol, has made Fantom faster and cheaper than previous technologies while retaining security.

Fantom's key differentiating factor from other smart contract platforms is its focus on improving the performance of the underlying distributed ledger. This means there is no segmentation between different networks, thereby not trading security for performance.
