According to their whitepaper, Fantom is the world’s first DAG (Directed Acyclic Graph) based smart contract platform that supports dApp development. Fantom solves the scalability issues of existing public distributed ledger technologies (DLTs). The platform distinguishes itself from the traditional block-ledger based storage infrastructure (which is commonly known as the blockchain) by employing an improved version of existing DAG-based protocols.
