We are excited to announce the successful close of the Flow public sale, which raised $18M across both the community sale and auction from nearly 13,000 participants.
The Flow community demonstrated their absolute commitment to the project. We could not be more proud to support an incredible team dedicated to their vision of making the world a more open place, and using blockchain to empower both creators and consumers. We were also incredibly impressed with the Flow team and their ability to engage with the community - Flow has set a distribution record and new standard for token issuers going forward. Congratulations to the Flow community!
