  • Fractal has been airdropping NFTs to members since it launched a few days ago
  • Fractal is built on the Solana blockchain

More and more people are joining the current craze in the NFT space hoping to get a piece of the action and to rake in some cash. Among them is the co-founder of the American interactive live streaming service Twitch Justin Kan, who recently launched Fractal -- a marketplace dedicated to selling gaming-related Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) for blockchain gaming companies.

Fractal was launched on Dec. 30 with a slew of major blockchain games such as "The Sandbox," "Aurory," "Syn City," "Genopets," "Mini Royale," "Caveworld," "Nyan Heroes," "Portals," "Solchicks," "Photo Finish," "Panzerdogs" and a lot more. Collectively, these games merchandise billions in NFT value.

The new gaming NFT platform is now live and trades have already taken place with NFTs currently selling from anywhere between 0.07 SOL to 14.00 SOL, or around $20,000. Fractal is built on the Solana blockchain, which many industry watchers believe, could be the major rival of Ethereum.

TheNFT platform's Discord group already has over 111,000 members even if it was only launched a few days ago. At present, it looks like the biggest sale on Fractal was for a "Baby Scoot" NFT that was sold for 4 SOL or roughly $680.

During the announcement, Kan called the Fractal community one of the "fastest-growing" in crypto. "Durable digital assets through NFTs are the future of gaming. We’ve partnered with some of the most innovative gaming companies on the Solana blockchain to bring that future-forward," the founder said in the press release.

Fractal also announced in a blog post that it will airdrop 100,000 Fractal NFTs to members over the next few weeks beginning from its launch date. It said, "As a token of our appreciation for the Fractal community, we are airdropping 100k special Fractal NFTs over the next few weeks starting from today (please make sure you are ‘Grape Verified’ on our Discord server)."

While it is not yet officially confirmed, the new NFT gaming platform hinted at the possibility that it would soon expand support to other blockchains. Mostly, the next in line could be Ethereum as "The Sandbox" project is built on the network.

Fractal also hinted that it would eventually expand support to other blockchains, with Ethereum likely to be the next in line considering that The Sandbox metaverse project is built on the network.
