Flowee is an open source project concerned about the way people use their money today. The company intends to enable everyone to switch from the traditional banking methods to P2P transactions.
The company has a series of products that it offers for free. They can be used and modified at will for the users. All the platforms are based on the Bitcoin Cash network, which is a very popular cryptocurrency (while not as popular as the original Bitcoin).
What Are The Flowee Products?
The main product of Flowee is the Hub, which connects the main products of Flowee with third party apps to the Bitcoin network. The Hub is written using C++ and it will allow people to make billions of payments a day. The complete Hub includes the Flowee Cashier, a lot of third party apps, the APIs of the company, the validation engine and the raw block data of the blockchain.
Basically, the hub is what connects the whole platform to the power that moves it: the blockchain. Also, it uses Bitcoin Cash, as the original creators of Flowee are not fans of the original Bitcoin as it was envisioned by Satoshi, its creator.
This means that anybody will be able to build decentralized apps on top of the Flowee Hub. The Flowee Cashier is the main product of the company right now, but the company offers tools and APIs so that the users will not have problems if they want to create their own apps because this is the fuel that will help Flowee to continue its existence with success.
The Hub offers a reliable software for creations with Bitcoin Cash that can be easily scalable and can take a massive volume increase, dev-ops and a community. Flowee Hub is not an app but a platform, so it is important to create a community that can contribute to the success of everybody.
Why Does Flowee Use Bitcoin Cash?
As stated before, the original creators of Flowee do not believe in Bitcoin as it is now. All things have to evolve and the company believes that it does not make sense to build something on top of the Bitcoin chain, as it has an antiquated technology which is considerably worse than Bitcoin Cash.
To create a platform in 2018 and still use the original Bitcoin would not be a good choice or at least that is the position of Flowee’s developers.
How To Create On Flowee?
To create your own projects using Flowee, you will have to use the Flowee API. You can download it on Github, as it is open source. You do not have any type of restrictions when using the platform and you can even keep your code a secret.
The Flowee position is that you should give back to the community if you are using something from this same community, but you do not have any legal obligation to do so. It can be considered something positive to do it, but do not feel compelled to.
How To Help Flowee?
If you like the project, you can donate on Github. The project is always accepting donations as it is not made for profit and its only goal is to make the Bitcoin community become more popular and better.
The release of the project will be “soon”, according to Flowee’s site. Feel free to join the development if you want to.
This is a very interesting project with some remarkable features, but it is surely too early to state that it will succeed, as Flowee is very dependent on the community. If a strong community is not formed around this platform, it will not have much future.
