Flow is a blockchain designed as the foundation for games, apps, and the digital assets that power them. It is based on a multi-role architecture and designed to scale without sharding, allowing for improvements in speed and throughput while preserving a developer-friendly, ACID-compliant environment. Flow aims to allow developers to build thriving crypto- and crypto-enabled businesses. Applications on Flow can keep consumers in control of their own data; create new kinds of digital assets tradable on open markets accessible from anywhere in the world; and build open economies owned by the users that help make them valuable.

Storing Flow and other digital assets requires a wallet, but don’t worry: Bitvavo’s hosted wallet allows you to store Flow without any technical knowledge. Here is a brief overview of the existing wallet options to store your Flow:
Hosted wallets are wallets where the private keys to your Flow are managed by a third party such as Bitvavo. Access to your account is protected by a password and other advanced security features. Once you are logged in, you can easily and conveniently manage your Flow online. Bitvavo offers standard hosted wallets for all digital assets that are offered on the platform.
A software wallet is a program installed on your computer or other device in order to use and manage your Flow. Using a software wallet gives you full control over your private keys, so you are not dependent on third parties. The risk is that you alone are in charge of the security of your Flow, and if malicious parties have access to your device, your private keys (and therefore your Flow) can be stolen.
A hardware wallet is a physical device on which you can store your Flow offline. It is one of the safest ways to store your Flow, because the private keys are stored on a separate and offline device. Access to this device is often protected by a password. In many ways, a hardware wallet can be compared to a safe in which your Flow is stored.
You can use Bitvavo's hosted wallet to easily store, send and receive Flow. Once you have purchased Flow on Bitvavo, you can choose to send your Flow from your Bitvavo wallet to your own software or hardware wallet.
