Six Reasons To Join The Flare Finance Beta Test
Digital currency has undergone numerous cycles since it was first invented in 2009. Transformations that have ensured that the digital currency world continues to evolve and be safe and secure for all shareholders, investors, and consumers alike.
Today, you might be familiar with passing Bitcoins from one wallet to another and transacting on a specific blockchain network. This limits interoperability of other coin projects and prevents full scaling. Flare Finance has much larger ambitions and plans on broadening utility across the entire crypto space by developing systems that unlock the value of all the blockchains.
This enhancement of the networks allows for every coin to become interoperable so it can leverage the decentralized finance model. It’s a major feat but it’s a total gamechanger if pulled off.
To effectively achieve their objective, Flare Network has introduced six different products and tokens to help with the automation and support the growth of the network. The firm has recently launched its beta test to the public so you can participate and try out all the latest Flare offerings.
Let’s discuss these features in detail.
What is the Flare Network?
Flare is a newly built blockchain based network that operates on the Flare Consensus Protocol. Recgonized as the first Turing Complete Federated Byzantine Agreement protocol, the Flare network uses the same style consensus and Ripple and Stellar but with the the latest addition, Turing-complete enables the network to run full smart contracts.
One major reason the Flare Network operates with a Federated Byzantine Agreement means it doesn’t rely on money or economic incentive to keep the network secure and account for consensus. While unlikely and mathematically improbable, Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other crypto projects are vulnerable to such attacks because of the competing uses and misaligned agendas of the native token.
Tokens in the Flare Network
Spark is Flare’s native token, used as collateral for trustless issuance of all assets that are are adopted into the network. This allows for merging of the Spark token with other assets to combine the use of smart contracts and can be seamlessly integrated into other networks like Ethereum.
YieldFlare has an approximate supply of 110 million tokens on its Network. The token can be earned in following ways;
- By offering a DAO of 40 million
- By staking YFIN on FlareX.
- By providing liquidity on FlareX to any pair with YFLR.
After earning YFLR tokens in your wallet, you can use them in the following ways;
- You can use them to generate vote proposals such as fee schedules, mining rates, and reserve pools.
The reserve pool is a payment platform that allows online business and e-commerce firms to accept payments in a stable coin currency, making it easy for them to process their international suppliers’ payments. Additionally, this method of payment enable them to keep their money free from inflation. More information on this available reserve.org
- Can be used to vote on new listings and white listings on FlareX.

- You use YFLR to earn YFIN on FlareFarm.
It has a total approximate supply of 11,000 tokens on its Network.
It can be earned through
- By providing liquidity on FlareX to any pair with YFIN
- By farming on FlareFarm with either FLR, YFLR, FXRP, or FUSD.
Like YFLR, it can also be used to vote proposals like fee schedules, mining rates, and the reserve pool.
YMIN has a total supply of 75 million tokens on its Network.
It can be earned in two main ways. By mining FLR on FlareMine and providing liquidity on FlareX to any pair with YMIN. It is mainly used as a mining rate multiplier to earn more on YFLR when staking YFIN.
Flare Finance Products
The platforms make it easy for investors and other Flare Network users to immediately access available stable coin currency by wrapping another asset and adding it to the network. You can wrap Litecoin or USD and enter into as an F-asset (Future asset) to be traded.
It is asset-backed with Decentralized On-Demand Liquidy (DODL) to enable traders to get loans against borrowers’ collateral. To qualify for the loans, traders have to pool their assets together. After you wrap your funds, you can stake your coins and provide liquidity to gain yield.
It is the most important product since it allows users on the Network to swap currencies. Secondly, it provides liquidity to liquidity pools for traders with Decentralized On-Demand Liquidity to enable them to earn passively.
It is a decentralized product that allows users to mutually share risks without engaging an insurance firm.
The revolutionary product allows for fair token distribution on the Flare Network. The yielding model will enable traders to stake one token to mine a pool of assets available on the Network. The tokens, NFTs, or rewards are usually distributed via smart contracts over a given period.
It is a decentralized mining network that integrates all other users of bitcoin. For instance, it allows Bitcoin owners or Ethereum mining rigs to mine FLR.
Flare Public Beta Launch
One of the first decentralized finance projects for the utility fork of the XRP ledger (Flare Finance) announced via their Twitter account that the Beta program’s public launch on 25th February 2021.

New Partners Join Finance Flare
As Flare finance continues with the preparation of the main launch slated for either the first quarter or second quarter of 2021, they are fortunate to have other partners such as Towo Labs on board. The Flare Network development team welcome the partnership with open arms because Towo Labs promised to help accelerate the launch process by assisting them in running the XRPL node from the nuclear bunker in Sweden.
