Among other features, its system is protected via Byzantine consensus. Any blockchain project may utilize the Flare protocol to develop decentralized apps and smart contracts for various purposes.
Moreover, Flare allows the creation of two-way bridges between networks such as Ethereum and XRP Ledger.
To be short, Flare is:
- the world’s first comprehensive Turing-based FBA network;
- scalable and independent network;
- low transaction costs;
- interoperability with the Ethereum virtual machine.
Features of Spark (FLR) token
Spark (FLR) is the native coin of the Flare Network cryptocurrency ecosystem, and it is required for smart contracts for XRP to operate on a subnetwork. Smart contracts, for example, exist in the Ethereum blockchain environment, but they operate within the blockchain itself.
