But Andre Cronje – founder of Anhern.Finance, a platform that offers automatic financial product returns in etherea, and member of the Fantom Foundation, says that the Fantom program is designed to avoid those pitfalls. “[It is] much better to encourage builders who can attract liquidity, which only to encourage the same teams and over again to liquidity,” Cronjé said in an interview with coindsk.
“We believe the builders are best to judge where the funds should be attributed, if they have to be provided to build the protocol, or if they should be used for liquidity mining,” says Fantom in his ad, and adds :

“Instead of playing favorites and a majority of our resources to become a handful of protocols, we open this opening to every development team that will be deployed in Fantom.”

The paid funds can be used for efforts of expanding mining or liquidity protocol, such as rent, at the discretion of the project.
Cronage is of the opinion that the method of commissioning innovation will promote instead of attracting only those who have a short-term benefit.
“In this way, we can actually see new products, not just the same copy / pasta products in each chain,” says Defi Developer. “We have rushed innovation with existing liquidity programs because smaller teams do not want to try to compete. Now they can”.
