Franklin Fitch (@Fitchinverse) is the Director of Growth/Marketing for Parallel—one of the highest touted digital trading card games (TCGs) in crypto. Franklin gives a 101 breakdown of Parallel’s sci-fi backstory, lore, community, roadmap, and so much more.
Parallel is redefining TCGs from the ground up and rewriting traditional “NFT Project” playbooks one page at a time. With over 30,000 active holders, 35,000 discord members, and 73,000 Twitter followers, Franklin and the Parallel community believe this is just the beginning.
Legacy trading card games such as Magic the Gathering, Pokémon, and Hearthstone have largely ignored crypto. However, Franklin gives credit where credit is due as he recognizes that these games built the foundation for Parallel—and even inspired the Parallel we know and love today.
Franklin has been in and around the crypto space for years, and you can hear the experience in his voice. Parallel’s vision for the future is equally as inspiring as the team helping to build it into reality.
