Scalable EVM-compatible blockchain Fantom demonstrates notable progress in late Q4, 2021. It looks like Ethereum (ETH) has one more dangerous "new-gen" competitor besides Terra (LUNA).

Fantom dApps ecosystem gains steam

In the last seven days, four top-tier smart contracts platforms witnessed double-digit upsurges in terms of total value locked (TVL), i.e., in the USD-denominated market capitalization of all cryptocurrency assets deposited by their clients.

Terra (LUNA), Fantom (FTM), Solana (SOL), Polygon (MATIC) are top performers in TVL rankings.

Terra Climbs Past $100 Amid Fresh Listing with 7.5 Million LUNA Tokens Burnt

With its $5.6 billion in total value locked, Fantom surpassed veteran smart contracts platform Tron (TRX).

Also, should it attract another $100 million from its dApps clients, it can surpass Polygon Network (formerly Matic Network, MATIC), well known for its low fees and fast execution of transactions.

FTM price jumps 70% in just five days

At the same time, to surpass its next competitors, Solana (SOL) and Avalanche (AVAX), Fantom needs to increase its TVL by more than 100%.

Fantom's DeFi ecosystem has one "unicorn" with more than $1 billion locked (Multichain, a dApp that works on top of all EVM-compatible blockchains), while two platforms, SpookySwap and Tomb Finance, are ready to join the "three commas club."

The price of FTM, a core native asset of Fantom Blockchain, reflects its explosive growth. Since Dec. 21, 2021, it has added almost 70%.

By press time, FTM is changing hands at the local high over $2.32 on major spot platforms.
