Fantom announced on September 1 that its network is now supported on Coinbase Wallet, which means users can access and interact with the decentralised applications (DApps) available on the Fantom mainnet. The price of Fantom token (FTM) surged by over 35 percent amid the announcement.

Fantom’s Transaction Count Up 2400% Since May 

Given the high performance and scalability of the Fantom network, it has attracted lots of decentralised projects, including Sushiswap, Curve and C.R.E.A.M (aka Cream Finance). The transaction count and value of digital assets locked on the network have also increased by 2,400 percent to over US$750 million since May.

  • Download Coinbase Wallet extension on desktop and scan the QR code using the mobile app.
  • Deposit FTM or supported coins to the extension. 
  • Connect the extension to Fantom fWallet or supported DApps to explore the opportunities.
