Been through multiple cycles. I want to share some thoughts on a project that I believe has the components of a massive winner: Fantom
Do you foresee Ethereum rising to a 100B Market Cap again? (a 4x) Do you envision DeFi and smart contract projects leading the next bullrun?
What about a project that challenges Ethereum at its most core functionality and offering: to be a fast, affordable, scalable platform of trust? A project that could technically replace Ethereum by utilizing the same address system and allowing any Solidity dapp to be ported in less than five minutes.
Because, while Ethereum uses Layer 2 solutions to address bottlenecks, Fantom uses their aBFT *Layer 1* consensus (Lachesis) with ***sub-second finality***. Lachesis works UNDER Fantom's Opera, Xar, and other blockchain mainnets, *meaning it can be further improved and upgraded over time, SEPARATE from all the complex coding at the blockchain level*. And Fantom blockchains have been running on Lachesis since last year and work incredibly well.
(Read their many academically-partnered research papers: https://fantom.foundation/fantom-research-papers/))
Try it yourself at http://supercharge.fantom.rocks
Send 50 confirmed transactions with one click.
Watch how fast it goes. Then realize those transactions are your:
- Solidity dapp's important functions being executed,
- your digital currency payments,
- or the trusted, real-time state of an autonomous car network carrying you through a congested city.
Could a project that has this combination of compatibility, capability, and possibility get to a 1 billion market cap or more? (Just 1% of Ethereum's likely 100B) I don't know, but if so, *that's a 66x from today's price*.
Fantom ALSO has a suite of DeFi tools going live soon. (fanton.finance)
There's much more at fantom.foundation
There are other great projects, but nothing has me more excited than Fantom right now
