What Is FLOW Blockchain And Why Is The Price Up 100% In The Last 24 Hours?

FLOW has seen an incredible price rally, as can anyone who looked at its charts. After growing by more than 100 percent in one year, the digital asset is now on crypto investor’s radar. The reason for this rally is less well-known. This article will examine FLOW and explain why the price has increased so much over the past 24 hours.

Meta News Is The Catalyst

Meta (previously known as Facebook), was moving ahead with NFT plans. The platform was rolling out an NFT function for Instagram, its sister platform. It did so in 100 different countries. Although the platform has been deep in the NFT world and the metaverse, the news did not surprise the market. The long-awaited news was accompanied by a new player who had not previously been mentioned in the plan.

Meta was required to disclose the name of the blockchain it will be using because NFTs run on blockchains. It went against everyone’s predictions that the social media giant would use one of the leading NFT networks to implement this feature. The FLOW Blockchain was announced as its official partner in hosting NFTs on the blockchain.
