Users can buy, trade, and hold NFTs on the Solana-based marketplace in blockchain games. The Sandbox, Nyan Heroes, Caveworld, and Genopets, to mention a few, were among the first blockchain games announced by the company on Thursday to be partners.
In his announcement, Kan described the 111,000-member Fractal community as one of the fastest-growing crypto communities. He added that since NFTs are the future of gaming as they allow for the creation of long-lasting digital assets, the team at Fractal has partnered with some of the most inventive gaming firms on the Solana blockchain.

According to the post, Fractals will have advantages on the Fractal marketplace and society as their full potential is yet to be found.
