Fractal is a public marketplace for gaming non-fungible tokens. Game companies can offer and sell NFT drops for long-lasting in-game assets directly to users. Players can search for new NFT games, buy NFTs, and resale NFTs. Fractal was formed by industry veterans Justin Kan, Robin Chan, David Wurtz, and Mike Angell.

These games have a combined NFT value of billions of dollars in their games. Fractal players will be able to purchase gaming NFTs for partner games straight from studio drops or from other players on the resale market.

NFTs are the newest digital asset trend, consisting of digital records of ownership of virtual things recorded on a public blockchain. Many new gaming businesses generate revenue by pre-selling NFTs with in-game value to players in order to support the development of their games. Fractal is the first digital marketplace dedicated to gaming non-financial tokens (NFTs). Fractal was formed by gaming and e-commerce industry veterans and serial entrepreneurs, including Justin Kan, who was formerly a co-founder of Twitch.

“Players will now be able to own their in-game assets and carry them with them wherever they go,” said Fractal co-founder Justin Kan. “NFTs are the future of gaming since they allow for the creation of long-lasting digital assets. To push that vision forward, we’ve teamed with some of the most inventive gaming firms on the Solana blockchain.”

“Within 10 days of announcing Fractal, we’ve had over 100,000 community members join our Discord server, making Fractal one of the fastest-growing communities in crypto,” Mr Kan added. “Players are enthralled by blockchain games, and we’re enthralled by all the new experiences that they will enable.”

Fractal went live on the Solana blockchain today, and players were able to trade in-game assets right away by linking a crypto wallet like Phantom. The first 100,000 members will shortly receive their own unique Fractal NFT as a prize for joining the community early. These NFTs will grant the NFT holder future rewards inside the Fractal community, as well as in third-party games.

“Fractal is a gaming marketplace created by players for gamers. We believe it will help introduce NFTs and the possibilities given by our open gaming Metaverse to new audiences, therefore we’re excited to see users will soon be able to swap and sell their virtual LANDS NFTs and game assets on Fractal”, the Sandbox’s Co-Founder and COO, Sebastien Borget, stated.

Albert Chen, Genopets’ Co-Founder and CEO remarked, “We’re incredibly happy to be collaborating with Fractal.” “We believe their gaming-focused NFT marketplace will provide novel capabilities that will help us spread the play-to-learn experience to gamers all across the world,” says the company.

Fractal also mentioned that it might ultimately provide support for other blockchains, with Ethereum being the most likely candidate given that The Sandboxmetaverse project is built on it. Users can presently connect to Solana-friendly wallets like Phantom and buy and sell any of the NFTs from Solana-based gaming projects.
