# FONDOS Launches Innovative Blockchain Ecosystem for Web3 Community
The Fondos Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of FONDOS ecosystem designed for the Web3 community. Built on principles of security, transparency and decentralization, FONDOS provides tools and services for communities and developers to connect, collaborate, and build valuable real-world solutions.
At the core of FONDOS is the FOS Chain, an EVM-compatible layer 1 blockchain focused on flexible and efficient deployment of decentralized applications. Alongside it is the FOS Wallet for multi-asset management and FOS Friends, a next-generation social platform for community engagement powered by SocialFi trends. FONDOS also offers the FOS NFT HODL collection, containing 12 unique zodiac-themed NFTs with incentives and rewards for long-term holders. By owning FOS HODL NFTs, users can access exclusive features like minting token, priority DApp access, governance voting rights, and more. "FONDOS was created to meet the evolving needs of builders and users in the Web3 space through an integrated suite of products, we aim to provide the infrastructure and incentives to drive blockchain adoption and real-world utility" said Founder Nathan Brook.
The FOS utility token will serve as the native currency across FONDOS products for a seamless user experience. FOS will be earned through participation, platform contributions, network governance and minting rewards.
Following a strategic 12-month development roadmap, FONDOS is thrilled to begin publicly rolling out its ecosystem in Q1 2024. The launch will introduce FOS Chain testnet, token listing, NFT sales, partnerships, and integrations with major DeFi protocols.
FONDOS invites all forward-thinking developers, creators and crypto enthusiasts to join its mission of building a more open, empowered and purpose-driven Web3 community.
