Crypto Research Firm Delphi Digital: Ethereum Rival Fantom ($FTM) ‘Eyes Breakout’

On Friday (January 14), crypto research startup Delphi Digital looked at how $FTM has performed against $ETH and $USDT over the past six months.

The research firm pointed out that:

  • $FTM’s price action suggests that it is on the verge of a breakout.
  • Although “TVLs across crypto have stagnated”, Fantom’s TVL is up 20% over the previous week.

On January 12, Fantom Foundation celebrated an important milestone:

Here is a little introduction by the Fantom team to this exciting crypto project:

Fantom is a high-performance, scalable, and secure smart-contract platform. It is designed to overcome the limitations of previous generation blockchain platforms. Fantom is permissionless, decentralized, and open-source. Lachesis, its revolutionary aBFT consensus mechanism, allows Fantom to be much faster and cheaper than older technologies, yet extremely secure.

Back in November 2021, crypto analyst and influencer “Guy,” who hosts the popular YouTube channel “Coin Bureau”, released a YouTube video in which he called Fantom’s medium sized market capitalization attractive for new investors and said the project’s fundamentals are “significantly stronger” than other cryptoassets on the market. 

As reported by The Daily Hodl, Guy stated:

FTM’s tokenomics are also seriously robust. All FTM coins allocated to Fantom’s early investors, founders and advisers finished vesting last November.

Guy went on to explain the network’s minting process, saying that all new $FTM coins coming to the market are being generated as staking rewards. The host said the continued minting would introduce a “small amount of sell pressure” that would be easily offset by demand coming from the platform’s userbase and investors. 

Coin Bureau’s host also noted that the Fantom Foundation offers a massive developer fund, with funds being vested to devs monthly over the course of one year. 

According to Guy, more than half of Fantom’s circulating supply is being staked:

And I’m sure most of it is being staked for more than the bare minimum. This reduction in available supply further increases FTM’s ability to fly.

According to data by CryptoCompare, currently (as of 17:23 UTC on January 15) $FTM is trading around $2.891, down 1.77% in the past 24-hour period.
