Hiroshi Fujiwara, the creator of the Metaverse, has now potentially revealed his entry into the world of NFTs.

Hiroshi took to Instagram to publish a teaser image of an anticipated NFT launch between his fragment design business and skate legend Mark Gonzales. "It's the first time I've ever seen it," says Gonzales, whose family has a long history in the construction industry. The graphic appears to be drawn by Gonzales, who playful redesigns the iconic fragment lightning bolt logo with a pair of Gonzales' angel figures. The teaser notes, "NON FRAGMENT TOKEN" before describing the project as "coming soon."

The tease first appeared last January 27th which is also Hiroshi Fujiwara’s birthday. Hiroshi has long been a fan of crypto and blockchain technology, previously backing Nomura Research Institute’s Cryptoasset Research division in 2017 before later joining the council of the Blockchain Collaborative Consortium.

He's also made it no secret that he wants to eventually explore the use of blockchain in the fashion industry. The co-founder of fragment design is even known to have said he wants to "create a bridge between ‘fashion’ and ‘cryptocurrency,” with this teaser potentially showing him making his first step towards that goal.

When asked for comment on the matter, a representative for fragment design stated that they had nothing to announce at the moment and would be in touch in case there was anything more to add in the future.

While this is all speculation, it's yet another example of how influential figures in the fashion world are paying attention to blockchain technology and its potential use for NFTs. And how NFT's are continuing to gain life-blood in an industry where collaborations are becoming increasingly common.
