What’s the Ecosystem Support Vault?
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.
A proposal was made that 10% of the 30% burn fees, or one-third, will be donated to a vault run by Fantom validators.
The community will supervise the use of funds for key ecosystem projects. This will be done via on-chain governance mechanisms that ensure a decentralised approach.
Fantom, a high-performance blockchain that is fully compatible with Ethereum, has already seen more than 200 decentralised apps (dApps), deployed.
These apps can be found on decentralised exchanges (DEXs), Lending and Borrowing platforms, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), GameFi wallets, and Cross-chain bridges. Aave Finance and Alpaca Finance are the top DeFi protocols available on Fantom.
Notably, the adoption of the governance vote means Fantom’s burn rate is effectively 20%.
