of your data.
Fractal builds real identities and privacy for empowering real people. So you can secure, exchange and create value from your data.
Making online identity verification (KYC) simple for businesses and individuals: together making web3 safer.
The Fractal team has every intention of keeping up the momentum in 2022. We are funneling everything we’ve got towards putting data ownership and control back where it belongs: into the hands of the user (you), the data originators, and contributors. This means full focus on Fractal ID & DID.
We announced new partnerships: Ocean Protocol (identity and data staking) and Outlier Ventures (frictionless ID for the metaverse).
We partnered with Integritee (a Kusama parachain winner) to build a solution for deriving data insights without any data sharing.
We launched our testnet and mainnet, and started our ongoing data provisioning incentives through the Fractal Wallet.
We published a field guide to the fractal protocol, revealing our revised strategy and experience to the world in an act of radical transparency.
We launched our first FCL staking programme and the first version of the Fractal Wallet; bringing self-sovereign identity to the masses by allowing users to store and securely share their data and making identity a building block for dapps.
We received a Web3 Foundation grant for our contributions to the Polkadot ecosystem.
We partnered with eyeo, the makers of AdBlock Plus and Crumbs, to build new privacy-preserving standards for the online ad market.
We partnered with SINE foundation to build an SMPC solution for privacy-preserving data sharing and third-party cookie replacement.
We publicly announced the fractal protocol, a big goal to save the ‘free web’ by building the missing identity layer.
We launched the FCL token with a community sale, launched Uniswap liquidity pools, and got listed on KuCoin, BitFinex and BKEX.
The crypto winter plus COVID was a scary combo to overcome, but it made us stronger. We found new markets to sell to, improved our identity products, doubled down on SSI and DIDs, and finally decide to move deeper into the blockchain space.
We published the first protocol whitepaper and technical primer. Titans of the blockchain and data industry; Bruce Pon (Ocean Protocol), Ingo Rube (KILT), Aurel Stenzel (Adjust, SINE) and others joined as advisors.
Fractal ID launched as the first fully compliant global identity verification system. Focussing on user experience, we offered users around-the-clock support, the ability to reuse their identity data, and automatic liveness detection as an alternative to video calls.
We democratized identification by launching the first permissionless, free, self-service solution for ID verification.
