A recap of the last 2 weeks in the Fantom universe!

Milestone reached: 1,000,000 fUSD minted & Fantom Finance video released

To celebrate the milestone of $1,000,000 minted fUSD, we dropped a sleek little video summary of what Fantom Finance offers.

Thank you to the community again for reaching the milestone so quickly!


Metamask integration for the Fantom wallet

FTM holders can now access the wallet using Metamask.

Developers can integrate Metamask into their Fantom dApps, which makes porting Ethereum dApps even easier.
