RenVM’s latest update includes support for the Fantom blockchain, bringing popular crypto assets BTC, BCH, DGB, DOGE, FIL, Zcash, and LUNA to Fantom’s ultra-fast and low-cost DeFi ecosystem.
Fantom users enjoy significantly reduced transaction wait times and greatly reduced transaction fees. But unfortunately, users who have native assets on the other major blockchains don’t have that ability – until now. As Fantom’s RenVM integration comes into play, users on other networks can deposit their assets directly into Fantom using RenBridge and enjoy Fantom’s faster and lower-cost ecosystem of transactions. Users will also be able to directly deposit and withdraw their crypto assets on the Fantom blockchain without going through multiple exchanges. With the RenBridge integration, DeFi enthusiasts can now add and trade almost all of their assets across multiple blockchains to Fantom and perform the necessary operations without having to rely on a centralized exchange.
The integration will support BTC, ZEC, BCH, and DOGE from the start. Others will be released shortly as the integration develops and expands. This will give users even more ways to use Fantom to build their cryptocurrency portfolio and make it work for them. Most importantly, they will see their portfolio become faster, more agile, and more adaptable to changing situations and market conditions.
This also marks a new stage of development for Fantom as a whole. As new partnerships and integrations flourish, Fantom will become increasingly prominent in the world of cryptocurrencies. As Fantom cultivates more collaborations and gains compatibility with more asset types, its usefulness, agility, and overall value will only increase for portfolio holders.
