Flare Networks is aiming to create a token that will connect the power and functionality of smart contracts on Ethereum and the speed and scalability of the XRP Ledger (XRPL). Spark (SPARK) was developed as a utility token for the Flare network.
Flare has a strong motivation behind its utility fork derived from XRP to create SPARK, emphasizing that 75% of the value hosted on public blockchains can’t be used with smart contracts in a trustless manner, as the value is locked by cryptocurrency creators and whale investors. Moreover, network safety is derived from native tokens through common use of Proof of Stake variants where scalability and scaling operations with smart contracts create an issue.
All XRP holders who deposit their XRP holdings into Tokens.net and hold their XRP balances through the snapshot, will benefit from the upcoming Spark token utility fork airdrop.
What is Spark?
Spark (FLR) is a native token to the Flare network, running on the Avalanche consensus protocol and combining the power of smart contracts on Ethereum and the speed of the XRP Ledger. The network operates on the protocol adapted for the Ethereum Virtual Machine and Federated Byzantine Agreement. Instead of organizing an ITO, Flare Networks will perform a utility fork to bring value to the original chain. The Spark token will be used on the network as a native token for governance voting as the foundation will be taking technical direction from the Spark owners to develop Flare and execute upgrades and changes to the network.
