how to add fantom to metamask bitcoin quirks

Another network that continues to grow in popularity due to extremely low gas fees (compared to Ethereum) is none other than the Fantom Opera Network. Fantom (FTM) has grown into an ecosystem that supports many popular cryptocurrencies such as HEC, TOMB, SPIRT, and more.

In order to trade and stake altcoins on Fantom, you must first add it to your Metamask Wallet. Once that is done, you will be able to use DEXs (DeFi Exchange Networks) such as SpiritSwap and SpookySwap. From there, you can trade your FTM for altcoins and add liquidity for staking pools.
