Fantom is a fast, high-throughput open-source smart contract platform for digital assets and dApps.
Founded in 2018, Fantom is designed to overcome the limitations of previous-generation blockchain platforms. Fantom is permissionless, decentralized, and open-source while achieving fast finality (1-2 second transaction confirmation) and low fees ($0.00001). Furthermore, Fantom is EVM-compatible.
Fantom code is completely open source. Anyone can read it, check on the progress, comment on it, and contribute. Fantom integrates industry-leaders oracle providers Chainlink and Band Protocol for maximum flexibility to access price feeds.

address, return current token balances along with their spot prices. This endpoint supports a variety of token standards like ERC20, ERC721 and ERC1155. As a special case, network native tokens like ETH on Ethereum are also returned even though it’s not a token contract.
address, return all transactions along with their decoded log events. This endpoint does a deep-crawl of the blockchain to retrieve all kinds of transactions that references the
addressincluding indexed topics within the event logs.
The Fantom token
FTM is the native token of Fantom. This is similar to Ether in Ethereum. To interact with the Fantom network, FTM tokens are required to pay gas fees. The Covalent API response returns
gas_* fields in fiat units.
Covalent maintains an on-chain real-time mapping of token addresses between Ethereum mainnet and the Fantom-Opera chain. These addresses are used to reverse-lookup prices on Fantom and also to return the right token logo urls.
Some example of mapped tokens:
|Token||Ethereum mainnet||Fantom mainnet|
For the current token mapping list, see: https://netapi.anyswap.net/bridge/v2/info
For tokens that have a mapping back to Ethereum mainnet, the Covalent API is able to return the mapped prices.
The following provide infrastructure for this blockchain network:
