Exploring Fantom: FantomHub
Orion Protocol, the most advanced liquidity aggregator combining CEXs, DEXs, and swap pools, recently integrated Fantom, providing users with a fast and low-cost chain to trade crypto assets from their own wallet. With Binance, OKX, KuCoin, AscendEX, QuickSwap and SpookySwap all aggregated into Orion Terminal and more to come, users trade with aggregated liquidity of the largest exchanges in the industry in one place. No account needed and always global access.
The Fantom community has grown and matured with the project since inception, creating many loyal groups and hundreds of dApps along with it. With Orion Protocol now a part of this enthusiastic FTM community in its own way, we’d like to introduce you to the popular projects, community groups and individuals sharing this great Fantom knowledge as we work with them in growing the education of Orion and Fantom. The information contributes to the continuous knowledge-building throughout the crypto space.
First up is FantomHub.
Can you tell us when you started following Fantom, what are your contributions to the Fantom community, and what initially attracted you to the project?
With the goal of developing a media site for the community of Layer 1 ecosystems, FantomHub was born right after Avaxholic (for the Avalanche community) and Astronaut (for the Solana community). We participate with the mindset of ecosystem builders providing information, in-depth analysis, and insights on all projects that want to develop in the ecosystem. Fantom has such an active community in supporting Fantom's core technologies and projects, which draws us to be a part of that dynamic community.
What are your favorite parts of Fantom, and what will they bring to Orion Terminal, the world’s most advanced decentralized liquidity aggregator?
As mentioned above, Fantom has a highly active community in development, and I believe that the growth of Orion Terminal on the ecosystem will be learned and used by many users when adequately guided.
Can you please name at least three of your favorite projects in the Fantom ecosystem and briefly summarize what they do?
Many projects have been developed to contribute to the development of the Fantom Ecosystem, such as Spooky, Curve Finance, and Spirit Swap, which are the largest DEX platforms providing decentralized liquidity on the Fantom Opera Chain.
On Orion Terminal, users always connect with their own wallet to trade aggregated liquidity from CEXs and DEXs. This includes decentralized access to Binance, KuCoin, OKX, AscendEX, QuickSwap and SpookySwap, with more to come including Crypto.com, Uniswap, PancakeSwap, and Sushi, amongst others. Can you explain why trading crypto assets from your own wallet is so critically important?
In our opinion, allowing users to connect to Orion Terminal with their own wallet gives users the right to own their assets without being held by 3rd parties. "Not your key, not your coin" is crucial for crypto users.
What are the top 5 FTM-based tokens you’d like to see listed on Orion Terminal, and why?
Spookyswap, Hector Finance, Geist Finance, Beefy Finance, and Spirit Swap should be the best choices because they are the mainstay projects in the Fantom ecosystem.
In what way will Orion aggregating all of Fantom’s CEX and DEX liquidity in one place be beneficial to the Fantom community?
This is an excellent solution for users of the Fantom ecosystem. Orion allows users to access a single source that aggregates DeFi platforms on the Fantom ecosystem. In addition, Orion also serves as a convenient bridge for Fantom users to the Ethereum and BSC ecosystems all in one place.
Do you have community initiatives that you’re currently working on, and is there anything you’d like to see from Orion and Fantom?
Currently, FantomHub is a source of quality information about projects developed in the Fantom ecosystem. We are also looking forward to the combination of Orion in the Fantom network to bring the best experience about DeFi for Fantom users.
We’d like to thank FantomHub for taking the time to share with us their Fantom community and news project which helps to educate everyone in the Fantom ecosystem. Orion welcomes all users to trading on Orion Terminal for the best price.
