Highlights

  • Instagram’s support for NFTs seems to have come as a boost for the wider crypto world
  • The social media platform, used by billions worldwide, will support NFTs minted on multiple blockchains
  • Flow is one such blockchain, and its token FLOW, seems to be gaining heavily in the aftermath

Are cryptocurrencies under stress at the moment? The internet is flooded with such headlines as ‘Is crypto dead?’, and ‘When will crypto rise?’. But one can arguably say this is a matter of perspective.

Consider these developments. BlackRock, the American investment management firm with trillions of dollars in assets under management (AUM), has announced a partnership with listed exchange Coinbase to bring institutional investors closer to cryptoassets. New non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are being unveiled virtually every day, including heavyweight names like Madonna and Bill Murray.

And now, Meta’s Instagram, one of the most popular social media applications globally, has announced NFT integration support in 100 countries. The news has lifted one cryptocurrency, FLOW, heavily over the past few hours of trading. Let us explore the Flow ecosystem.

Flow blockchain

Although many identify Flow as a crypto token, the project is primarily a blockchain. The network claims that it helps assemble smart contracts like “Lego blocks”. The blockchain highlights its so-called ‘multi-node architecture’, which it says differentiates the network from traditional blockchains.

In a multi-node arrangement, validator nodes participate in stages during any transaction. This, Flow claims infuses a kind of ‘division of labour’ system in decentralised ledger tech.
