The protocol is dead, long live the protocol!
Today we are announcing that the Fractal Protocol will be discontinued, giving way to a new protocol: the Identity Operating System (idOS). Iterations — and sometimes even pivots — are necessary to learn and evolve. We took the learning we gathered since Júlio and I envisioned the protocol in the fall of 2020 and came to the conclusion that a pivot is necessary. — Back to where it all started - The idOS is what we should have started in 2021. It is core to what Fractal ID set out to do since we founded the company in 2017 — to bring a user-owned identity layer to web3. It is a separation between Fractal ID, the company that now has over 1M users and is one of the most-used onboarding providers in crypto today, and the open-source protocol that is cross-chain, compliant, self-sovereign, and decentralized. — Why did we start Fractal Protocol and why are we pivoting now? - We wanted to make a push for the user-owned internet. User data is valuable, which is why the biggest internet monopolies offer great services for free so they can harvest and monetize people’s information. Power is concentrated with a few companies, users’ data gets siloed and the diversity of the internet suffers as a result. With the Fractal Protocol, we wanted too much too early. The internet wasn’t accelerated by brick-and-mortar stores, neither will corporations and web2 behemoths be the catalyst for web3 adoption. ...

Identity Portability: A Flywheel for Blockchain Ecosystem Adoption
1. Introduction - The evolution of the internet from a public information system (web1) to an interactive social web (web2) has given rise to innovative applications, use cases, and economies of scale. Yet, a trade-off exists in the form of standardized identity provider models that are centralized and fragmented. Digital identities in this scenario lack user control, transparency, and interconnectivity. With the advent of web3, we are presented with a whole new way of managing digital identities. Transcending the barriers of traditional systems, web3’s robust identity layer is guided by the principles of privacy, trust, anonymity & user-centricity. At the heart of this transition lies the concept of identity portability — a feature of decentralized identity management that holds the key to a seamless and hassle-free user experience across dApps and blockchain ecosystems — thereby facilitating wider adoption. In this latest blogpost, we investigate the concept of identity portability, its implications for blockchain ecosystems, and how it helps unlock the full potential of the web3 economy. We also explore what makes Fractal ID the go-to identity infrastructure builder for supporting this effort. Let’s explore! — 2. The Evolution of Identity in Blockchain Ecosystems - Before we jump into what makes an identity portable and examine its relevance, we must first understand why decentralized identity is ...

|Historical Bitcoin Fractal Pattern Hints At Crash Below $20,000
A detailed analysis by well-regarded crypto analyst Rekt Capital has spotlighted a recurring bearish fractal in the historical price data of Bitcoin, raising prospects of a potential crash below the $20,000 mark. Notoriously seen in 2019 and 2022, this pattern seems to be reemerging in the current 2023 market.
For those unfamiliar, the fractal indicator identifies potential turning points on a price chart by highlighting repetitive price patterns. In simple terms, a bearish fractal suggests a potential decline in price. Such a pattern materializes when there's a peak price with two consecutively lower high bars/candles on its flanks. An up arrow typically marks a bearish fractal, indicating the potential for price descent.
Here's Why Bitcoin Price Could Drop Below $20,000
The essence of this bearish pattern begins with a double top. Contrary to expectations, this double top doesn't validate with a dip below a significant support level. Instead, the price typically sees a relief rally, forming a lower high, only to crash below the previously mentioned support.
This support then morphs into a new resistance level, driving the price further down. This sequence was observed in both 2019 and 2022, and the current market scenario in 2023 mirrors the initial stages of this pattern. Rekt Capital suggests that the market is potentially in the middle of this bearish fractal, with uncertainty around where the relief rally might conclude.
From the beginning of April to the end of August...
|Could A Litecoin Fractal Foretell A New Bull Trend In Crypto?
The cryptocurrency market continues to feel the darkness of crypto winter, but it could be Litecoin bringing the blossom of a new bull trend, according to a an eerily similar fractal found in LTCUSD daily price charts.
The fractal pattern developed following the most recent pullback, and appears to have a similar structure to a major bull market breakout. Could this be the light at the end of the tunnel for cryptocurrencies?
Hawkish Fed Dims Litecoin Rally, But A Fractal Gives Hope
After a stellar month leading the market with 40% returns for November, Litecoin has given back nearly half of that thus far in December.
LTC had been on a tear, outperforming top coins like Bitcoin and Ethereum, and clawed its way closer toward making it back into the top ten cryptocurrencies ranked by market cap.
But the greater market pullback stemming from a hawkish Fed meeting this month, caused a failure to liftoff in Litecoin.
However, the discovery of a price action fractal in LTCUSD could suggest this recent pullback wasn’t necessarily a failure, but a refueling of sorts — before taking off in an even stronger rally.
Comparing Price Action Then Vs Now: Will Bulls Get A Break? The fractal begins on Black Thursday in March 2020 — a black swan event few saw coming. Litecoin rebounded and the fractal formed.
Unlike Bitcoin, which made a lower low during the FTX, LTCUSD hasn’t, and instead has followed the same pattern from 2020 al...
|How the $35M Fractal Just Raised Could Rock the NFT Space (Op-Ed)
The announcement came on April 1, but it was no joke. Neither was the amount raised, $35 million USD, a tidy sum. Justin Kan dropped a hint of what was ahead for Fractal last month, tweeting, “Yeah, I built Twitch, it has millions of users & gaming NFTs are way bigger.”
Ten days before launching the NFT marketplace on Dec 30 last year, Fractal announced the launch, and by the time it went live, the Fractal Discord had accumulated some 107,000 followers, according to Kan in an interview with GamesBeat.
Paradigm and Multicoin Lead $35M Seed Round
Along with Menlo Park, California-based Andreeson Horowitz, Solana Ventures, Coinbase, Animoca Brands, Play Ventures, Position Ventures, Zynga founder Mark Pincus, Crossover, Shrug Capital, TerraForm CEO Do Kwon, Tim Ferriss, and the founders of Ramp along with many others joined the round.
Kan, however, took to Twitter to remind stakeholders in the Fractal and NFT community, as well as any start-up entrepreneurs looking on that, “it’s not the size of your seed round it’s what you do with it.” With the crypto market in bloom with echoes of NASDAQ in the late 1990s, it’s an important admonition for both crypto-investors and startups.
Here’s what Kan says Fractal has in the works with the fresh infusion of private capital raised three months from launching:
“Crypto never sleeps. We’re building stuff super fast, very product-driven, it feels like we’re defining how value&rs...
