What is Flare (FLR)?

Flare is an EVM tier 1 blockchain with two key protocols: the State Connector and the Flare Time Series Oracle (FTSO). These protocols enable developers to build a comprehensive and decentralised interoperability ecosystem.

The Flare Time Sequence Oracle provides highly decentralised price and data feeds to Flare dapps, eliminating the need for centralised sources. Information from other blockchains and the internet may be used safely, scalable, and trustlessly with smart contracts on Flare thanks to the State Connector protocols.

Flare's fundamental protocols can make it easier to create interoperable dapps with a wide range of potential creative use cases by encouraging groups of independent providers to query, acquire, and process data without relying on solitary, centralised sources.

For native payments and network-level spam prevention, Flare's native FLR token is necessary. Each FLR token has a corresponding, assignable vote that can be used to participate in the FTSO. The technological goal of FLR is to charge for transactions in order to discourage unnecessary transactions, or network spamming. Transaction fees are used to do this. The Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), which is used by Flare Network, describes the computational complexity of a transaction in terms of units of gas.

Additionally, FLR can be wrapped into WFLR, an ERC-20 variation. WFLR tokens are used for a variety of purposes; they can be staked to take part in governance or delegated to FTSO data providers, for instance. These two uses are not exclusive of one another, and they do not exclude the use of the tokens in other EVM-compatible dapps and smart contracts on Flare.

10% of the current supply of Flare was minted in year 1, making it an inflationary network. To secure the decentralised distribution of pricing data to the network, these newly created FLR are distributed to Flare Time Series Oracle data providers and the token holders that delegate to them (70%) as well as validators (20%) and State Connector attestation providers (10%).

Songbird – the canary network for Flare

A working blockchain with a fixed token supply known as a "canary network" enables new features to be tested in real-world settings before being introduced to the main network. In comparison, a testnet often contains an infinite supply of tokens.

Songbird use cases include:

  • Before deploying Flare on the mainnet, test it in a live setting
  • Provide a live testing environment for dapp developers
  • Act as the lower house in a bicameral system of government


Hugo Philion, Sean Rowan, and Dr. Nairi Usher, who are currently the CEO, CTO, and chief scientist, respectively, established Flare. They met while pursuing their interests in distributed systems and their applications while studying machine learning at University College London.
