Fantom will use 10% of the burn fee to support various projects within its ecosystem.

The Fantom (FTM) community has passed an on-chain governance proposal aimed at supporting the continued evolution of the Layer-1 platform’s ecosystem.

Ecosystem Support Vault governance proposal voting has concluded.

The Ecosystem Support Vault allows Fantom to support new projects and ideas on the Fantom Opera network via funds set aside from a percentage of the 30% transaction fees burn rate.

Through the proposal, 10%, or a third of the 30% burn fees will go to a vault controlled by Fantom validators and stakers. 

The community will oversee the application of the funds on key ecosystem projects, doing so via on-chain governance mechanisms to ensure a decentralised approach is maintained.

Fantom is a high performance blockchain fully compatible with Ethereum and has seen over 200 decentralised applications (dApps) deployed.

These include apps across decentralised exchanges (DEXs), Lending and Borrowing, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) platforms, GameFi, wallets and Cross-chain Bridges. Top DeFi protocols on Fantom include Aave and Alpaca Finance.

Notably, the adoption of the governance vote means Fantom’s burn rate is effectively 20%.
