Flow is a decentralized, open-source blockchain designed specifically for building and scaling decentralized applications (dApps) and digital assets such as non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Flow aims to address the limitations and scalability challenges faced by other blockchain platforms by utilizing a unique architecture that separates the consensus layer from the computation layer. This separation allows for increased scalability, improved performance, and enhanced developer experience.
Flow was created by Dapper Labs, the same company behind popular projects like CryptoKitties and NBA Top Shot. It has gained significant attention and adoption within the NFT space due to its ability to handle high transaction volumes and support complex applications. The Flow blockchain has been utilized for a variety of applications, including gaming, collectibles, art, and more.
