Flow is a social-focused blockchain (gaming & social media) that is created by Dapper Labs, the team behind CryptoKitties. Due to the scaling problems CryptoKitties had on Ethereum, Flow developers have set out to build a highly scalable and user-friendly platform with an eye on consumer markets. Flow reached mainstream success in 2021 through the launch of NFT platform NBA Topshot's which allows fans to trade digital collectibles. Accordingly, Flow has attracted investment from major firms such as Warner Music, Andreessen Horowitz, and Digital Currency Group. The FLOW token is used for payments, gas fees and governance. It operates as a proof-of-stake token to reward validators with additional tokens for confirming transactions and securing the network.
Flow (FLOW) is the 98th largest cryptocurrency in the world by market cap, valued at $1,171,317,869. The current price of Flow is $16.66, which is -2.809%
lower than yesterday. Prices have ranged between $18.02 and $16.71 over the past 24 hours. All prices are listed in US dollars and accurate as of October 16, 2021 03:10 UTC.

What to consider when buying Flow
Below are the aspects you should consider before investing in FLOW:
Competition: Flow is yet another unique blockchain competing in an increasingly saturated market. Built to solve the scaling challenge associated with Ethereum, Flow joins a vast number of proof-of-stake networks all attempting to solve the same thing, competing with more established projects like Cardano, Algorand and Polkadot. Fortunately the development team Dapper Labs are off to a strong start with substantial success in both CryptoKitties, NBA Top Shot and impressive VC backing.
Consumer-focused: Flow is a consumer-focused platform striving for mainstream use. To achieve this it tried to make fiat on-ramping (getting dollars onto the blockchain) as frictionless as possible by handling all Flow transactions through a Dapper account. Dapper lets users pay with credit or debit cards as well as leading cryptocurrencies, meaning users don't need to learn how to use a blockchain wallet or first buy cryptocurrency on an exchange to make purchases.
Tokenomics: FLOW is designed to be the chain's native asset central to most, if not all applications. In addition to general payments, it's used to pay gas fees, works as a bridge asset between tokens on the network, and is required to mint new tokens or dapps on the network. The Flow blockchain is designed to let buyers pay in any currency they want (including fiat) and for sellers to receive in any currency they want. As such, there is the potential for FLOW as a unit of payment to be undermined by fiat payments, especially given that it is targeting a mainstream audience.
Disclaimer: Cryptocurrencies, including Flow, are speculative, complex and involve significant risks – they are highly volatile and sensitive to secondary activity. Performance is unpredictable and past performance of FLOW is no guarantee of future performance. Consider your own circumstances, and obtain your own advice, before relying on this information. You should also verify the nature of any product or service (including its legal status and relevant regulatory requirements) and consult the relevant Regulators' websites before making any decision. Finder, or the author, may have holdings in the Flow or any other cryptocurrency discussed.
