Once their planned trading engine upgrade is successfully completed and tested, FCL will be listed on Bitfinex in July 2021

Mapping our specific milestones and level of ambition

We at Fractal can’t believe, it has been more than 3 months since we started Fractal Protocol as our web3 rocketship to save the free web and revolutionize the ad market.

How it Works

Let us very briefly explain again how the lottery works.

#1 - Fractal generated a random string, called a secret, and produced a hash of it. We call this hash our commitment.
#2 - The commitment is published and available to everyone. You are able to find it on our Fractal Protocol landing page of the lottery.
#3 - In the lottery system, we combine your email address with the secret and hash the result. The hash is going to be a completely random combination of numbers and letters which will be your lottery ticket! The lottery tickets with the…

Economics Sneak Peak

In 2020, Robert Wilson and Paul Milgrom were awarded the 2020 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences. Over the last decades, they improved auction theory and invented multiple new auction formats. If designed correctly, auctions can contribute to a fair resource distribution. In this blog post, we give a short introduction to the fascinating world of auction theory, which we will pick up throughout the next articles to find new ways of looking at the value of data.

An auction allocates a set of resources to a group of people (formally called agents). For simplicity, in the following, we assume…

Global Interdisciplinary Community Power

The Fractal Protocol Boosting the Data Economy

The Fractal Protocol provides novel, decentralized infrastructure that preserves privacy and gives strong data-sharing incentives.
Fractal creates data commons with less friction, no middlemen and empowered users that — for the first time — are able to monetize their own data. Decentralization is important because opening and freeing up a market increases its economic utility and fairness. This decentralized data commons allows people to become active participants in the data economy, control how their data is used exactly — and consequently own their own fair share of the value they provide with it.

Introducing our Fractal Ambassadors

Executing on our vision is a big…


Fractal is an open source zero-margin protocol that defines a basic standard to exchange user information in a fair and open way.
