Fantom Price Analysis: Decoding Why FTM price rallied over 30% in the past 2 days

Key Takeaways:

Fantom, created as an alternative to Ethereum, is an open-source, decentralized, smart-contract platform for dApps and digital assets. The main focus of the chain lies around 3 main components, scalability, security & decentralisation. It offers tools to simplify the integration of existing dApps & staking reward systems. 

The platform uses an independent consensus mechanism called Lachesis which provides securities for other layers including opera, Fantom’s EVM-compatible smart contract chain. 

FTM is the native PoS currency which backs the entire platform and is used as a payment mode, to pay network fees, staking and governance. In short, FTM is the backbone of the transactions allowing fee collection and staking activities.

Fantom’s Network growth sees a spike

The Network growth of the blockchain refers to the change in total addresses. The indicator tracks variation relative to the prior week’s total addresses. Further, it is optimised to reflect bullish or bearish sentiment for each individual asset’s behaviour. With a jump in the levels, the total addresses are also assumed to have raised, attracting more traffic to the platform.

Fantom’s network growth has been lackluster through most parts of the year – but the month of November recorded a significant jump in this particular metric. In fact, it is the second biggest jump in the network growth in all of 2022. This indicates that the project could be gaining attention and traction and something good is brewing behind the scenes.

Fantom’s Daily Active Address also sees a major jump

The daily active address is the number of addresses who are directly transacting on the chain. This indicates good traction on the blockchain network, and ties in well with the metric analysed before too. We can also see that the hike in FTM price also coincides with the spike in daily active address. Meanwhile, it is possible we may see some increased volatility, however, overall this is a good indication too.


The Fantom price has been largely incremental ever since the price flipped from its lows. Moreover, a rise in the network growth and the daily active address suggests the revival of the bullish trend very soon. Until then, the price of FTM is expected to rise and consolidate above $0.3 to $0.4. As the bulls reclaim their hegemony, a significant upswing beyond $0.5 is entirely possible.

Prices as on 30 November, 2022.
