A new marketplace for gaming NFTs – Fractal has been launched by Twitch’s co-founder Justin Kan. He aims to make Fractal the ideal marketplace for selling game NFTs. These non-fungible tokens use blockchain to authenticate unique digital items.
Kan said players can own their in-game assets. They will be able to take them wherever they go. He believes durable digital assets through NFTs are the future of gaming. Twitch has partnered with some innovative gaming companies on the Solana blockchain to take that future forward.
The company has recorded over 100,000 community members joining their Discord server within 10-days of the announcement of Fractal. This makes the newly launched marketplace one of the fastest-growing communities in the crypto world. Kan highlighted that the players are excited about blockchain games. As such, Twitch is excited about all the new experiences that will be grasped. Kan believes Fractal can attract new audiences to discover and explore NFTs. He is energized by the possibilities offered by the open gaming metaverse.
Sebastein Borget, Co-Founder and COO of The Sandbox expressed excitement about users being able to exchange and sell their virtual LANDS NFTs and game assets on Fractal. Genopets Co-Founder and CEO, Albert Chen is also happy to work with Fractal. He says the gaming-focused NFT marketplace will bring innovative functions. It will help them expand the play-to-earn experience to gamers across the world.
Fractal has launched with some leading partner blockchain games with the likes of The Sandbox, Genopets, Nyan Heroes, Auroy, Caveworld, Mini Royale and Syn City, etc.
Kan hopes that blockchain and Web 3 can provide freedom to game companies and gamers. They don’t have to be dependent on platform owners that take a 30% cut for marketplaces and distribution. Fractal has filled this gap and liberated the market.
