  • Fantom blockchain is a Layer-1 project with smart contract functionalities

  • The native token FTM broke past key resistance at $0.34

  • FTM could rise to hit $0.43 next as bullish momentum develop

Fantom FTM/USD recent recoveries underline the trust in scalable Layer-1 solutions. Leading blockchains like Bitcoin and Ethereum have been criticized for costly and slow transactions. Layer-1 alternatives were popular last year due to their scalability and low gas fees. Fantom has been widely touted as a Layer-1 smart contract platform ready to rival for top spots.

Ranked at position 53 by market cap, Fantom is already punching below its knees. That was after a decline following cracks in its own ecosystem followed by a bear market. However, Fantom is renewing itself. Gains in the past one week are around 9%. The gains will likely accelerate in the coming week as Fantom broke past key resistance at $0.34. The token currently trades at $0.37 in bullish momentum and will likely reach $0.43 next.
