Some of the most well-liked applications in cryptocurrency, NFTs, and gaming run on the robust blockchain called Flow. In 2019, Dapper Labs introduced Flow, which is now swiftly emerging as the preferred blockchain for companies looking to expand their user bases.
What is the Flow blockchain?
One of the top blockchains for the newest apps, NFTs, and games is Flow. Transactions are quick and inexpensive since it is built to grow without using sharding techniques.
Most significantly, Flow wants to make other blockchains less complicated. Consider making a CryptoKitty purchase. That process may require dozens of blockchain transactions in the background. On Flow, however, a single atomic transaction within a single block does the identical action.
How does Flow work?
Every blockchain has its validation technique to execute transactions and secure the network.
For instance, the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) algorithm used by the Ethereum blockchain enables a decentralized and safe network. However, it has struggled to scale and handle such massive numbers of transactions while keeping costs low. As a result, layer 2 solutions have become more popular, able to process many orders off-chain at higher speeds and cheaper transaction costs than the mainnet.
Contrarily, Flow divides the task of processing transactions into four distinct nodes, each with a distinct job and duty. The native node subdivisions of Flow provide it a significant edge in terms of blockchain scalability over other networks that rely on off-chain ways to scale the network.
With a strong emphasis on developer friendliness and making it simple for non-crypto users to participate, Flow is designed for widespread adoption. The Flow network, for instance, makes it simple for users to find misplaced keys. Additionally, Flow strives to streamline the numerous procedures needed to begin their preferred tasks. Dapper Labs uses Flow for all of their portfolio projects as a result.
How to purchase FLOW
Flow’s native FLOW coin was originally made available to the public through CoinList in October 2020, but it was not available in the United States or Canada. Tokens purchased through the sale were locked up for at least a year afterward, making it impossible to use them until they are released.
As a result, there is some FLOW on the market, and some exchanges, including Kraken and Huobi, allow users to transact FLOW. On the other hand, FLOW rewards provided to validators can be transferred and sold. However, significant exchanges like Binance and Coinbase presently do not support FLOW.
The future of Flow
In late 2020 and early 2021, the market for Flow NFT collectibles exploded, and Flow has become one of the largest winners as a result. One of the most popular crypto dapps is Dapper Labs’ own NBA Top Shot, and Flow reported a large increase in developer requests in the first few weeks of 2021. Briefly put, NBA Top Shot served as a fruitful proof of concept for Dapper’s specially created blockchain, and now other designers want to use that system. Commercial interest follows developer enthusiasm, and in June 2021 the Ethereum-based NFT marketplace Rarible announced that it would expand its service to Flow using the funds from its $14.2 million Series A investment round. Dapper is also developing its separate platforms for collectibles.
Additionally, Flow is developing its infrastructure. The first U.S. dollar-backed stablecoin on Flow, FUSD, was introduced by Dapper Labs in June 2021. The stablecoin is backed one-to-one by dollars deposited with financial infrastructure provider Prime Trust.
That’s a part of Dapper Labs’ larger goals for Flow, which include using it for more complex game experiences outside of NFTs: It is the “blockchain for open worlds,” according to Dapper. On the one hand, the term “open” suggests decentralization, but it might only be a matter of time before it also serves as the setting for big crypto games.
