Flow for DeFi

Powering DeFi Apps & Services

Scalable, Secure, Economic, User-Friendly

Why Build on Flow


Flow’s multi-role architecture is designed to scale with fast transaction finality. Flow can architecturally support up to 1 million TPS and petabytes of user data.

Safety & Security

The built-in security at Flow protocol level. The built-in ownership and resource-oriented model of Cadence make smart contracts safe and secure.

Easy User Onboarding

Flow’s Walletless Onboarding + Hybrid Custody solution simplifies user onboarding.

Complex On-Chain Logic Support

Flow is architecturally designed to scale with on-chain logic complexity and economical to execute complex transactions, such as arbitrage between DEXes, liquidation of a debt position, etc.


Cadence interface support allows high-level logic to work with a mixture of objects. Scripts & transactions can separate out integration glue from on-chain components; contracts can invoke one another.

Flow Ecosystem

The fast growing Flow ecosystem provides a large user base (20M+ user accounts) & a dedicated community of developers that can inspire and support each other.

Case Studies

"Flow’s scalability and low costs are another important reason, having >350M+ transactions processed already, Flow’s multi-role node architecture makes it scalable as demand grows. The execution cost is also negligible - a fraction of 1 cent - even cheaper than Solana, making it super economical to execute complex transactions in quick finality, such as arbitrage between DEXes, liquidation of a debt position, and so on."

"The builtin ownership and resource model make writing Cadence contracts safe and secure, eliminating potential smart contract issues such as the notorious reentrancy bug as much as possible."
