What is the Fantom ecosystem?
The Fantom network is an open-source, scalable, EVM-compatible, and secure smart-contract platform. The Fantom ecosystem is made up of Fantom tokens, NFTs, DEXs, DeFi dApps, and many other Web3 apps.
Fantom is permissionless, and anyone can run a node. On Fantom’s Opera chain, a virtually unlimited number of validator nodes can participate in securing the network, as long as they stake a minimum of 500,000 FTM.
If you’re looking for blockchain data, the most popular block explorer for Fantom is FTMscan.

How do I connect to Fantom dApps and Web3 apps?
First of all, what are dApps and Web3 apps? They’re like any other app, except they’re built using blockchain technology like smart contracts. Instead of signing in with a username and password, you connect with a crypto wallet.
All dApps are Web3 apps, but not all Web3 apps are decentralized, so ‘Web3 app’ is the umbrella term used for any app you connect to with a crypto wallet. If you’d like to learn more, visit: What are dApps and Web3 apps?
