What is Flow? Flow is a fast, decentralized, and easy-to-use blockchain designed as the foundation for a new generation of games, apps, and digital assets that power them. Flow is the only tier one blockchain originally created by a team that has consistently delivered great blockchain experiences to consumers: CryptoKitties, Dapper Wallet, NBA Top Shot. FLOW Token The FLOW token ("FLOW") is the native currency of the Flow network and the cornerstone of a new, inclusive and borderless digital economy. If Flow is the digital infrastructure, the FLOW token is the fuel that powers the network.
FLOW is the currency necessary for the operation of the network and all the applications on it. FLOW is designed as a payment method and long-term backup resource for the entire flow economy. The token is used by validators, developers, and users to participate in the FLOW network and earn rewards. It is also used for committees and to participate in the future governance of the protocol. The Flow ecosystem is a blockchain designed from the ground up for traditional adoption and is the only blockchain that builds usability enhancements at the protocol layer.
The best developers and some of the biggest brands in the world are already building on Flow, enabling entirely new experiences with world-class content. Flow has a rich ecosystem comprised of top entertainment brands, development studios, and venture-backed startups. Flow ecosystem partners include global IP brands such as Warner Music, Ubisoft, NBA and UFC; major game developers including Animoca Brands, Sumo Digital and nWay; cryptocurrency leaders such as Circle and Binance; as well as numerous projects highlighted among the next generation of high-growth startups, including Opensea.
