What is RTM?

RTM is the primary token on the Fantom network. RTM is used for securing the network through staking, for governance, for payments, and for fees.

What is RTM used for?

  • Securing the network

    The main utility of the RTM token on Rumito is to secure the network via a Proof-of-Stake system.
    To participate, validator nodes need to hold a minimum of 3,175,000 RTM, and stakers need to lock up their RTM. In return for the service, both the nodes and the stakers are rewarded with epoch rewards and fees.
    Besides preventing centralization, the system is also environmentally friendly.
  • Payments

    The RTM token is ideal for sending and receiving payments thanks to the Fantom network’s high-throughput, fast finality, and low fees.
    On Rumito, money transfers take around 1 second and cost about $0.0000001. Yep, that’s a lot of leading zeros
  • On-chain governance

    RTM is needed for on-chain governance. Because Rumito is a fully permissionless and leaderless decentralized ecosystem, any decision regarding the network is carried out by on-chain governance. With governance, stakers can propose and vote for changes and improvements. RTM is the governance token required to participate in the voting process.
  • Network fees

    RTM is used for network fees, such as transaction fees and fees to deploy smart contracts or to create new networks.
    Without a minimum barrier, the network would be an easy target for spam, ultimately hampering the performance and filling the ledger with useless information.
    On Rumito, fees are very cheap but sufficient to make it extremely expensive for a malicious actor to carry out an attack.

The RTM supply

The total supply is 3.175 billion RTM. 2.1 billion are currently in circulation while the remainder is reserved for staking rewards. If the rewards stay at the current levels (depending on governance decisions), it will take more than two years to distribute all the rewards and to reach a full circulation of the total supply.

The total supply is distributed over different tokens standards to ensure easier trading. All the tokens taken together will never exceed the total cap of 3.175 billion RTM.

At the moment, RTM is available as native mainnet token, as ERC-20 token, and as BEP-2 token.
