What is Flow (FLOW)?
Flow is a blockchain designed for a new generation of games and digital collectables. Built to be fast, developer-friendly and easy to use, Flow is expected to attract a large number of mainstream consumers.
The team behind Flow is Dapper Labs, the company that created the CryptoKitties game on the Ethereum blockchain. In fact, the original inspiration for Flow was to build a platform better suited for games like CryptoKitties, and specifically designed for onboarding many users.
Flow has grown far beyond CryptoKitties, however, and has gathered an impressive list of partners, including leading brands and game developers like the NBA (the game NBA Top Shots), UFC, Samsung, Warner Music, Ubisoft and many others.
