Getting started on Fantom Opera

Network Details

The first thing you need to do is add the network to your Metamask: Network Name: Fantom Opera New RPC Url: ChainID: 250 Symbol: FTM Block Explorer URL:
Detailed instructions in the link below
Once you have the proper network you will need native FTM in your wallet to transact. Treat FTM the way you would treat ETH on Ethereum. This is what pays the (almost non-existent) gas fees.
Only Opera network FTM will work. ERC-20 must be converted.
There is a FTM faucet available through the FantomTip bot in the official Fantom Discord: How to interact with the FantomTip faucet:
  1. 1.
    Send a direct message to @FantomTip. !help will give you a list of commands
  2. 2.
    Type !faucet
  3. 3.
    Type !withdraw [your address]

Bridging Assets

There are a few bridges available, depending on where your funds are starting from:
  • allows bridging of BNB from Binance Smart Chain and FTM from Ethereum, as well as a few other coins.
  • Anyswap.exhcange/bridge is another choice, but will only bridge BNB
  • It's best to ask questions in the official fantom discord for help and to check on bridge status/liquidity/etc.

You're up and running!

Now you can swap assets, provide liquidity, and farm $ELK at (just make sure you're connected to Fantom Opera network when visiting the site).
