What Is Flow?
Flow is a fast, decentralized, and developer-friendly blockchain, designed as the foundation for a new generation of games, apps, and the digital assets that power them. The only layer-one blockchain originally created by a team that has consistently delivered great consumer blockchain experiences: CryptoKitties, Dapper Wallet, NBA Top Shot.
This is a fast, decentralized, and developer-friendly blockchain, designed as the foundation for a new generation of games, apps, and the digital assets that power them. It is based on a unique, multi-role architecture, and designed to scale without sharding, allowing for massive improvements in speed and throughput while preserving a developer-friendly, ACID-compliant environment.
Flow empowers developers to build thriving crypto- and crypto-enabled businesses. Applications on can keep consumers in control of their own data; create new kinds of digital assets tradable on open markets accessible from anywhere in the world; and build open economies owned by the users that help make them valuable.

How Flow works
Unique among crypto networks, Flow achieves dramatic improvements in speed and throughput by separating the jobs of a cryptocurrency miner or validator into four different roles, each with their own characteristics.
This means anyone with a reliable internet connection should be able to participate as a validator for, at a variety of computational and financial tiers. Validators join Flow in one of four roles:
- – Collector Nodes increase efficiency
- – Execution Nodes enable speed and scale
- – Verifier Nodes guarantee correctness
- – Consensus Nodes ensuredecentralization
The FLOW token is the native currency for the Flow network and the keystone for a new, inclusive, and borderless digital economy. If Flow is the digital infrastructure, The token is the fuel that powers the network. This is the currency required for the network and all the applications on top of it to function.
This is designed as a payment method as well as a long-term reserve asset for the entire economy. The token is used by validators, developers, and users to participate in the network and earn rewards. It is also used for fees and to participate in future protocol governance.
Smart contracts and user accounts on can always interact with each other in one atomic, consistent, isolated, and durable (ACID) transaction. In other words: all applications on can run in the same shared execution state.
This ensures apps benefit from great user experience and full composability, letting developers easily build on each other’s work. Sharding and layer 2 solutions break composability and reduce network effects for dapps and smart contracts by removing ACID guarantees from the execution environment.
What can build on Flow?
Flow is designed for high-throughput, low-latency consumer applications, games, and digital assets. Protocol-level usability and onboarding features make it easy to bring new users while a new decentralized architecture ensures security at scale.
The Flow Ecosystem
Flow is a blockchain designed from the ground up for mainstream adoption and is the only blockchain that builds usability improvements into the protocol layer. Top developers and some of the world’s largest brands are already building on Flow, enabling completely new experiences with top-tier content.
It has a rich ecosystem comprised of top entertainment brands, development studios, and venture-backed startups. Flow ecosystem partners include global IP brands like Warner Music, Ubisoft, NBA and UFC; leading game developers, including Animoca Brands, Sumo Digital and nWay; leaders in crypto, such as Circle and Binance; as well as several noteworthy projects among the next generation of high-growth startups, including Opensea.
Battle-tested in production and ready to help you build the kinds of applications that people want to use.
Built-In Logging Support
A simple feature that will pay dividends in software quality and development speed.
A new easy-to-learn programming language designed for dapps and digital assets.
Upgradable Smart Contracts
Securely and transparently patch bugs and upgrade pre-specified parts of a smart contract.
Fast and Deterministic Finality
The is built to be fast and responsive – achieving global finality within seconds.
What makes unique?
Learning from and improving upon existing solutions provides:
- Multi-role architecture: Flow’s design is one of a kind, allowing the network to scale to serve billions of users without sharding or reducing decentralization of consensus.
- Resource-oriented programming: smart contracts on are written in Cadence, an easy and safe programming language for crypto assets and apps.
- Developer ergonomics: from upgradeable smart contracts to the The Emulator, this network is designed for those who want to build valuable products for the community.
- Consumer onboarding: The was designed for mainstream consumers, with payment onramps enabling a safe and low-friction path from fiat currencies to crypto.
Home to the world’s most vibrant communities
Flow was designed from the ground up as a foundation for internet-scale protocols and applications that also require exceptional user experience. Conceived by the team behind CryptoKitties, It was developed and stress-tested with top global partners and is now open for anyone to contribute to and benefit from.
The standardizes usability improvements for crypto-savvy traders and basketball superfans alike, letting you focus on what matters.
The will launch with payment onramps and ecosystems optimized for consumer applications.
Fundamental requirement to protect mainstream users against malicious apps and build trust in the system.
Smart User Accounts
Flow accounts make it easy for dapps or wallets to pay transaction fees and recover lost keys for users.
Incentives for Early Adopters
A significant allocation of tokens will be reserved for early user- and developer growth.
