Transparent conductive film (TCF) has found wide applications. Indium tin oxide (ITO) is currently the most widely used transparent electrode. However, major problem of ITO is the lacking of flexibility, which totally limits its applications. Here, we report a highly flexible transparent electrode consisting of freestanding ITO nanofiber network fabricated by blow spinning, the advantage of which is its high-efficiency, low cost and safety. When the bending radius decreased to 0.5 mm, the resistance of the transparent electrodes only increased by 18.4%. Furthermore, the resistance was almost unchanged after thousands of bending cycles at 3.5 mm bending radius
