Frequently asked questions
What is Ferrum Network?
Ferrum is ushering in the era of blockchain interoperability 2.0. Powered by a multichain messaging engine known as Quantum Portal, Ferrum Network’s mainnet will bring value, data, and functional interoperability to every chain in the industry.
Utilize Ferrum Network to build and deploy solutions on one network and instantly enable multichain functionality without the burden or technical debt that comes with managing a multichain infrastructure.
What is MultiSwap?
MultiSwap allows users to securely bridge any asset on network 1 for any asset on network 2 at transaction speed. MultiChain Liquidity Pool Bridge enables users to swap any asset on network 1 for the same native token on network 2.
What is Quantum Portal?
Quantum Portal is part of the Ferrum Runtime Node. When you deploy the Ferrum Network node you can configure it to mine or validate Quantum Portal transactions of Ferrum Network transactions as a validator on the network.
Quantum Portal includes the following core components:
- Quantum Portal Node
- Quantum Portal Smart Contracts
- Quantum Portal MultiChain Explorer
What is MultiChain vs CrossChain?
In the world of cryptocurrency and blockchain, MultiChain and CrossChain refer to two different approaches to interoperability, or the ability of different blockchain networks to communicate with each other.
MultiChain is a platform that allows users to create and manage their own private blockchain networks, which can then be connected to other MultiChain networks to form a larger, interconnected system. This approach allows users to maintain control over their own networks while still benefiting from the advantages of interoperability.
CrossChain, on the other hand, refers to the ability of different blockchain networks to directly communicate and transact with each other without the need for a centralized intermediary. This approach allows for greater decentralization and autonomy, but it also comes with certain challenges, such as the need for technical coordination and agreement among different network stakeholders.
Overall, both MultiChain and CrossChain approaches have their own strengths and limitations, and the appropriate approach to interoperability will depend on the specific needs and goals of a given project or application.

What is Ferrum Advisory Services (FAS)?
To gain access to Ferrum Network Presales, you need to have your cFRM staked in Crucible to qualify for either the Ferrum Lottery tier or a guaranteed allocation to the early rounds of top early-stage projects that have joined the Ferrum Network Ecosystem. *The guaranteed tier requires a minimum of 30,000 cFRM or more staked on Crucible.
What are Value Constrained Roll-Ups?
Value-Constrained PoS Rollups are invented by Naiem Yeganeh, the founder of Ferrum Network. Much like Optimistic and ZK Rollups, value-constrained PoS Rollups use the security of the underlying chains. The value constraints are enforced by the L1 chain. (e.g. Ethereum)
What is FRM Token Utility?
FRM is the native cryptocurrency of the Ferrum Network and is required for users to interact with the network.
It is also used as the fee token for MultiSwap and is deflationary in nature by way of Crucible.
Note: By holding FRM, community members can gain access to presales through Ferrum Advisory Services.
