Overview

Flow was created by NBA Top Shot Developer, Dapper Labs  who also created CryptoKitties. It is a proof of stake blockchain built to support NFT collectibles and crypto games. It is designed to be fast, secure and developer friendly and is deemed to be a foundation for entire ecosystems of dApps targeting the next generation of crypto games. The Flow blockchain was conceived after Ethereum faced huge scalability issues during the CryptoKitties hype and the Flow team felt that shards and sidechains were not compatible for apps that strive for performance.

Pros
  • Flow has a multi-role architecture which allows incredible ability to scale to billions of users without the need for sharding or loss of true decentralisation.
  • Cadence, its programming language is developer friendly and safer for the users
  • Developer ergonomics – the developers of the code can update the code and later make it immutable, differing from the majority of smart contracts which once executed cannot be changed.
  • Flow was designed for mainstream consumers with payment onramps, making a safe and easy path from fiat into crypto.
  • Flow is backed by very credible investors such as Andreessen Horowitz, Warner Music Group, Union Square Ventures and Digital Currency Group

 

Cons
  • Cadence, the programming language for Flow, uses an interpreted programming language which although more flexible than compiled programs, such as Ethereum’s, Solidity, it has a serious drawback due to a lower execution speeds.
