Fantom General Update | November 22 2021

November is slowly coming to an end and we are finishing off strong with the news of the last 14 days.

Expanding the 370m FTM rewards program to support more protocols

Since the launch of our incentive program, TVL has increased by an impressive +600%. The Fantom Foundation now adjusted the reward tiers and minimum TVL requirements to incentivize even more teams to build on Opera.

  • Tier 1: 500,000 FTM reward
  • Tier 2: 900,000 FTM reward
  • Tier 3: 2,500,000 FTM reward
  • Tier 4: 6,000,000 FTM reward

The minimum TVL requirement for each tier is 20 x (FTM reward * FTM price in $).

By considering the FTM price in our calculation, we are rewarding protocols for real TVL growth, not TVL growth/reduction based on FTM price changes. As a result, we have a fairer incentive distribution.
