The creators of Cryptokitties repeat: the official launch of Flow is already breaking all records.Bitcoin
While decentralized finance was on everyone’s lips, another phenomenon is rising from its ashes and stealing the limelight. After hitting the headlines a few years ago thanks to the rise of its flagship project CryptoKitties. Dapper Labs is doing it again by offering a brand new blockchain that promises to revolutionize the NFT (Non Fungible Tokens) sector.
This is a promotional article written in collaboration with Dapper Labs.
The contours of a large-scale project
If you believe in the very essence of NFTs , then little hesitation remains. It is surely the future king of the sector who launches before your eyes. According to The News Spy, the sale of tokens is already breaking all records:
“More than 7,500 people participated in the Flow community sale, and all this in less than a week. It is on track to become the biggest token sale in Coinlist history. ”
Unlike Bitcoin and its 21 million units. NFTs are unique and indivisible tokens. They can come in the form of collectibles, digital works of art, tickets for a specific event, but also equipment to improve the aesthetics or performance of a video game character.
In order to be able to meet the scalability needs , the company Dapper Labs decided to step up a gear and introduce the Flow blockchain . Indeed, after having experienced the limitations of Ethereum for several years thanks to its Blockbuster Cryptokitties. It is a reinforced team of 23 researchers and engineers who took turns with a simple goal: mass adoption.
If the future of video games were to rhyme with NFT, blockchain congestion would be problem number 1. Even though version 2.0 of Ethereum and the future use of sharding is in the pipeline , the Flow team considers it too complex. and advocates a multi-node blockchain architecture .
An already impressive list of partners
Beyond the technical aspect, the list of partnerships remains impressive. 4 NBA players are already supporting the project, and promising the heyday of the future “NBA top shots” game . A concept around MMA will also see the light of day, thanks to a partnership signed with the UFC . Apart from the sportsman, an official collaboration has been disclosed with Warner Group Music , Animoca Brands and Dr Seuss.
On the side of crypto investors, it is none other than the giants Coinbase , Andreessen Horowitz, Distributed Global and Samsung NEXT who invested in flow during a first phase of financing.
The last missing link in this ambitious project? A community worthy of the name. And this is why it will be possible for all future supporters of the concept to participate in the development of this new blockchain by investing through a community sale open until tomorrow.
