Why Flow Blockchain?
Flow is a new blockchain built for the next generation of apps, games, and the digital assets that power them.
The NFT collectibles market increased dramatically in late 2020 and early 2021, and Flow has been one of the biggest beneficiaries of that surge. Not only has Dapper Labs’ creation NBA Top Shot been one of the most successful crypto dApps ever, but Flow reported a significant uptick in developer requests during early 2021. NBA Top Shot has been a successful proof-of-concept for Dapper’s custom-built blockchain, and we see Flow as the perfect infrastructure for SportsIcon to build on.
The user-friendly Flow blockchain is built for extensive scaling. It provides fast, low-cost transactions, ideal for dApps like NFT marketplaces and crypto games. Flow’s unique architecture enhances scalability and efficiency, allowing it to deliver the performance needed to support applications without sharding or compromising its decentralization.
Flow empowers developers to build thriving crypto and crypto-enabled businesses. Applications built on this blockchain can keep consumers in control of their data; create new kinds of digital assets tradable on open markets accessible from anywhere in the world; and build open economies owned by the users that help make them valuable.
Flow is built for collectible and interactive crypto experiences that grow quickly in prominence and could find much larger audiences in the years to come. NBA Top Shot has already demonstrated the potential for a blockchain-driven collectibles experience to find success and gain significant mainstream attention — and that’s just one experience built on top of Flow.
Because of the amazing development and dApp environment that comes with Flow, it was clear for us that it should be the home of the SportsIcon ecosystem.
