🔬 Article: Why Flowverse loves Flow
Today we breakdown why we (the Flowverse team) love the Flow Blockchain 🌊
Reason 1: Blockchain for the Billions
NFTs are crypto’s consumer moment and by focusing on NFTs & consumer apps, we believe that Flow is the trojan horse that will bring blockchain tech to the billions of mainstream users.
Reason 2: Great UX/UI
Most apps built on Flow e.g. NBA Top Shot, Flovatar, Fancraze, The Football Club, Versus, Flowty, etc. are innovative, consumer friendly and have a big focus on great user experience by abstracting away the complexities of the blockchain.
Most Flow NFTs can also be purchased via credit card enabling non-native web3 users to have a safe, low friction path from fiat to crypto.
Moreover with low transaction fees, the throughput necessary to scale to tons of active users, no sharding and human readable transactions, we believe this makes Flow the best blockchain to onboard non-native web3 users.
Reason 3: Biggest brands & IP
The most iconic brands in the world with huge IP are building on Flow and agree with the vision of Dapper Labs.
These include: NBA, NFL, ICC, UFC, Warner Music, Billboard, Barbie, Balmain, Mixi group, LaLiga, AFL, Instagram and more.
Partnerships with big brands can help onboard hundreds of millions of their users onto the Flow blockchain.
Reason 4: Eco-friendly
With sustainability being such an important topic in this day and age, it is imperative to consider the environmental impacts of a blockchain.
Minting an NFT on Flow uses less energy than an Instagram post or a Google search

Reason 5: Vibrant communities
Flow is also home to the most tight knit crypto communities that we’ve ever seen.
Some examples of great communities include: Genies, NBA Top Shot, Emerald City DAO, Flovatar, Hoodlums, BALLERZ, Roomz ,Hustle & Show, Wolfpack, etc.
Reason 6: Ecosystem Support & Capital
Dapper Labs has raised HUGE amounts of capital and Flow has launched one of the biggest crypto ecosystem funds ($725M) to date with support from industry-leading firms that have backed several of the most successful Web3 companies.
Reason 7: Team
Last but not least, the Dapper Labs & Flow Blockchain team is world class.
Roham, Mik Naayem, Dieter Shirley (created the NFT standard on Ethereum, coined the term ‘NFT’) & team have a long-term vision and are up there amongst the most significant contributors to bringing crypto to the mainstream through the release of CryptoKitties, NBA Top Shot, Flow etc.
