Amid the ongoing technological revolution, the Fantom blockchain has embarked on a groundbreaking initiative to foster increased demand for block space, which augments the value proposition of FTM tokens.
Unveiling the ‘dApp Gas Monetization Program’
On Sunday, developers of the Fantom blockchain announced via a tweet that projects leveraging its network, particularly those contributing significantly to high gas fee usage, would receive incentives as a testament to the network’s appreciation of their contributions. This bold move seeks to stimulate a surge in the demand for block space.
The reward scheme has been aptly named the “dApp Gas Monetization Program”. This initiative was given the green light following a community governance vote earlier this year, cementing its acceptance among the stakeholders.
Eligible applications stand a chance to reap significant rewards from this innovative move, with a 15% reward of the gas fees they generate. That allows the developers to enjoy an additional income stream, thereby incentivizing the creation of more value on the network.
The main objective of this proposal was to curtail Fantom’s existing burn rate, thus channeling a larger share of network fees directly to applications developed on Fantom. With the proposal successfully passing through the governance vote, the implementation process is set to reduce the burn rate from 20% to 5%. That would, in turn, redirect the 15% reduction toward gas monetization.
Strengthening the Fantom Network Infrastructure
The gas monetization program is poised to offer rewards to popular applications and retain top-notch developers, bolstering Fantom’s network infrastructure. Doing so will ensure a steady and dependable foundation for continued growth.
In the realm of blockchain, ‘Gas’ symbolizes the fee remitted by blockchain users in the native token of that particular blockchain. In Fantom’s case, the native token is the Fantom (FTM).
Despite the transaction fees on Fantom being minuscule, amounting to mere fractions of a cent per transaction, the cumulative sum over time morphs into a sizeable amount. Users of Fantom-based projects bear this cost.
Early Successes of the Gas Monetization Program:
Data suggests that several projects have begun reaping the benefits of the monetization program, demonstrating its impact just hours following its implementation on Sunday.
As the Fantom blockchain continues to evolve, this innovative monetization program represents a significant stride towards incentivizing gas usage, enhancing network sustainability, and ultimately, solidifying the value proposition of FTM tokens.
This strategy has the potential to fundamentally reshape the landscape of blockchain applications, fostering both development and usage while establishing Fantom as a driving force within the industry.
