We also recently launched our own Flow NFT marketplace.

Since our launch in June 2021, we've grown from zero to over 40,000 newsletter subscribers and 40,000 Twitter followers, becoming the go-to source for news and analysis about the Flow blockchain.

At Flowverse, our mission is to help people discover, buy, and sell the best Flow projects, and we're doing this by building a community-first platform that puts users at the center of everything we do.

Our Socks collection features many Flow OGs and project founders, while our Mystery Pass collection is a premium membership experience that offers access to exclusive content, NFT airdrops, and collaborations we do as part of Flowverse.

What is Flow Blockchain?

Flow is a fast, decentralized, and developer-friendly blockchain.

It was created by Dapper Labs, the team behind CryptoKitties, to solve problems they had scaling CryptoKitties on the Ethereum network.

Flow differs from other blockchains (like Ethereum, Solana, Bitcoin, Cardano, DOGE & more) because it was explicitly designed to support games and consumer applications on day one, with the throughput necessary to scale to millions of active users.

Many high profile IPs have built applications on top of Flow across sport and entertainment including the NBA, UFC, La Liga and NFL, as well as Warner and Universal music group.

$FLOW is the native currency (cryptocurrency) for the Flow network, the exclusive token for staking, governance, payment of transaction fees, and the principal reserve asset on the network.

What's an NFT?

NFT stands for Non-fungible token. To understand what this means, let's break it down into the two words:

1 - Non-fungible: A non-fungible asset is unique and non-interchangeable i.e. a beautiful house, a rare piece of art like the Mona Lisa or a very rare Pokemon card. This contrasts to a fungible asset like cash whereby a $10 note is interchangeable and non-unique in the sense that a $10 note is always worth $10 regardless of who owns it or the condition it is in.

2 - Token: A token is a form of virtual currency that exists on a blockchain

Combining the two means that NFTs are like a 1 of 1 cryptocurrency, or cryptocurrency representing an art piece instead of currency.

An NFT can represent any type of digital asset. For example, artwork, an mp3 file, a video clip, or virtual land. Crucially, the NFT isn’t actually the piece of artwork itself; it’s a unique, on-chain token (piece of code on a blockchain) that represents the ownership of the digital asset.

Aren't NFTs bad for the environment?

Flow NFTs (NFTs built on top of Flow Blockchain) have been found by Deloitte Canada to require less energy to create than an Instagram post.

In fact, 12.5 FLOW NFTs can be minted for each Google search. This is due to Flow's Proof of Stake consensus mechanism and unique multi-node architecture.
