Where to buy Mainnet FTM:
You can purchase Mainnet FTM (in the form of frc-20) from the way listed above, these mainnet FTM can be able to transfer directly through the FTM chain and interact with dApps operating on the chain. There are also other ways to purchase FTM. However, they might not be in the form of Mainnet (probably erc-20 on Ethereum chain). You would need to bridge them to the mainnet. (See "Bridges" section)
