Flare is a powerful new blockchain with the first consensus protocol for external data. Decentralized applications on Flare can therefore trustlessly acquire and use information from other blockchains and real-world data sources, solving the oracle problem and opening the door to a new era of utility.
This means secure decentralized bridging, full cross-chain composability with assets and information able to flow freely between all chains, and seamless decentralized integration of Web2 data in Web3 dapps.
Flare is a layer 1 EVM blockchain that has 2 core protocols, the State Connector and Flare Time Series Oracle (FTSO). These protocols allow developers to create an ecosystem of robust and decentralized interoperability applications.
