Fractal, which was made by Twitch co-founder Justin Kan for non-fungible tokens (NFT) related to games, is expanding into the Polygon network to make it easier to use. Possibly good metaverse news for Polygon in this case.
The platform launched on the Solana blockchain in December 2021. Andreessen Horowitz, Solana Labs, Animoca, Coinbase Ventures, and others will lead a $35 million seed funding round. It now hosts dozens of Web3 games, non-fee-to-play games, and tournaments on its website and gives developers a set of tools to help them get started.
The company said that expanding into Polygon would allow it to focus on getting new users and provide the blockchain tools and financial infrastructure needed to help game developers make successful games. It will now include a launchpad, marketplace, tournaments, developer SDK, game launcher, and Fractal sign-in as part of its F Studio product bundle.
Also, Polygon Labs, the company that made the scaling system for Ethereum, will make an undisclosed “strategic investment” in Fractal to help it grow and improve its services. Thirty of Polygon’s favorite games will work with Fractal on a tournament and activation campaign leading up to the Game Developers Conference in March.
“Inspired by Justin’s learnings from founding Twitch, Fractal’s mission has been to relentlessly support Web3 game developers with everything they need to build the future of gaming,” said Robin Chan, one of the co-founders of Fractal. “From user acquisition to blockchain tooling to financial infrastructure, we put the framework in place so they can focus on successful game development.”
With the addition of new projects and big companies to its ecosystem, Polygon has won another victory. Polygon’s recent partnerships with Nike, Reddit, and Starbucks have all been successful, and last month, Y00ts, one of Solana’s top non-fungible token (NFT) projects, used the blockchain to get a $3 million grant.
