What Is Fractal (FCL)?
Fractal (FCL) is an open source zero-margin protocol built on Polkadot. Designed to replace the ad cookie and give users maximum control over their data, Fractal forms the standard for the fair and open exchange of user information. The project is part of a rapidly growing ecosystem, collaborating with KILT Protocol, Polkadex, Polymath and other partnerships that provide a decentralized authentication system.
Fractal's mission is to shape market dynamics and infrastructure to ensure a fair distribution of value in the advertising market. Thus, the company's mission is to create publicly available data to ensure equitable competition within the current market structure. Fractal balances incentives on the Internet, helping to maintain a free and open concept of work. Fractal Protocol generates a balance where the privacy interests of users are taken into account, content creators are rewarded, and the rights of advertisers are protected. As a result, user data is stored where it belongs, and Fractal helps to collect, verify, process and share information confidentially.
FCL, the utility token of Fractal, functions as the native currency of the protocol, fueling the built-in incentive mechanism. The token was launched on the Polkastarter platform on February 25, 2021.
Who Are the Founders of Fractal?
Fractal ID was co-founded by Julian Leitloff (CEO) and Júlio Santos (CPO) in 2017, the same year they acquired their first client - Ocean Protocol. Sovrin and XAIN joined the list of clients in 2018, and KILT Protocol entered the list in 2019.
Julian Leitloff is the co-founder and managing director of Fractal. He received his master's degree in Corporate Management & Economics from Zeppelin University in 2014. Leitloff successfully founded his own company Spontaneous Order GmbH and made his first million at age 22. Due to his achievements, he was named as one of Forbes 30 under 30 in 2016. Leitloff first got into blockchain in 2015, when he met Bruce Pon (future head of Ocean Protocol) at Tech Open Air.
Júlio Santos is a technical manager, software engineer, entrepreneur and most importantly - the co-founder of Fractal, where he leads the Product and Engineering team. At the company, he’s building an identity layer on the Internet using the Fractal Protocol. Santos has been involved in the world of blockchain since 2015. Over the years of his career, he has founded projects like Life on Mars (an elite software consulting firm), Gruvi (the company that creates advanced productivity marketing tools for Twitter, Disney, Sony, HBO), and Attmatr / Madmarkedet (a farm-to-table marketplace).

How Is the Fractal Network Secured?
Fractal (FCL) opted for the Polkadot blockchain, which provides both the infrastructure for connectivity and the appropriate tools to deploy the protocol.
Polkadot has a serious approach to security, that's why the developers created Substrate - an SDK for Polkadot-compatible blockchain building. Shared security is Polkadot's value proposition, and economic security is established through Relay Chain validators. More specifically, validators are staked on the Relay Chain and confirm transactions from different parachains, resulting in the safe and independent interaction of chains according to the same rules.
Polkadot offers an environment where networks can control their own transaction fees and scaling is not only possible, but affordable. In addition, Polkadot focuses on development expertise by investing in an ecosystem of security tools like Substrate and Cumulus.
