Inside Enjin: Bringing Blockchain to Mainstream Games and Apps

Enjin’s core values align with the belief that the virtual worlds of tomorrow will evolve into an interconnected digital reality. Their product ecosystem focuses on empowering developers to create blockchain-powered digital realities that are infused with real-world value. Enjin has various products that make it easy for gamers and app developers to mint blockchain assets, integrate them into their platforms, and monetize the valuable ecosystem they create with them. Enjin Coin (ENJ) powers the Enjin Ecosystem, which already features a suite of live products, including the Enjin Platform, Marketplace, Explorer, Wallet, and Beam -a QR blockchain asset distribution service currently being adopted by forward-thinking companies like Microsoft and Binance.

The Gold Standard for Digital Assets: Enjin Coin

Enjin Coin was developed in 2017 and now powers over 1 billion digital assets. To use Enjin Platform’s plug-and-play blockchain integration tools, game and app developers purchase Enjin Coin, an Ethereum-based cryptocurrency used to back the value of their blockchain assets. When blockchain assets are minted, Enjin Coin gets locked inside them, similar to how the gold standard was used in the past to back U.S. Dollars.

In addition to their utility in the digital world, assets minted with the Enjin Platform have real-life value because players can sell them on the Enjin Marketplace and receive Enjin Coin as payment. They can then spend that Enjin Coin on experiences and products that positively impact their real lives. These assets can also be integrated across multiple games, giving them more utility and sentimental value than any form of centralized asset can ever achieve.

Furthermore, developers can choose to create blockchain assets that are deflationary. This allows them to leverage Ethereum’s transparency and provide their users with trustless digital scarcity, which means the value of their assets increase as the game’s player base grows. In the same way that Bitcoin is a hedge against inflation in the real world, blockchain assets are a hedge against inflation in games and digital worlds.

The Blockchain Wallet — Impenetrable, feature-packed, and convenient

The Enjin Wallet is built for all users, whether you’re a trader, gamer, or developer. At its most basic level, the wallet allows the trading , storing, buying, and selling of blockchain assets (NFTS) and collectibles. However, it also has a unique feature, called Enjin Beam, that enables users to scan a QR and receive blockchain assets instantly. The Enjin wallet enables users to manage infinite wallets, meaning one can create, import, use, and track an unlimited number of blockchain wallets all in one streamlined easy-to-use app. Without leaving the safety of your blockchain wallet, the app allows seamless use of all compatible DApps.

Enjin prioritizes their customers’ privacy by eliminating ads and trackers, while also ensuring that private keys are your own. The wallet provides maximum security, confidentiality, and protection of assets with Two NSA-grade cryptographic layers of dual encryption, ARM instructions that ensure sensitive data is instantly deleted from your phone’s memory, and its own Enjin Keyboard that is built from scratch to protect you from any form of data sniffing or keyloggers.

Enjin Game Development Frontier

Enjin provides a platform for the building of decentralized gaming worlds without a single line of blockchain code. Through the Enjin Platform, developers can use mainstream-friendly blockchain integration tools to turn their mainstream games into blockchain games with advanced game design, valuable economies, and better monetization.

Not familiar with blockchain? Enjin provides detailed documentation so users can learn how to easily create, manage, and integrate blockchain assets into any piece of software. Enjin’s focus on gaming aligns with their belief that blockchain technology can lead to a fundamental change in the nature of virtual worlds, but the technology is being used to power blockchain use cases beyond games and entertainment.

Evolve Your Game

Creating Assets→ Enjin’s online interface, the Enjin Platform minting panel, enables users to create blockchain projects and assets in seconds. In traditional multiplayer games, assets like characters and weapons are only stored on game servers and have value just inside that one game. However, Enjin’s platform shifts this dynamic by allowing you to create in-game assets that have value both inside and outside of your game, connecting both reality and the virtual world. This opens up a new world of opportunities for you to explore and evolve your game’s mechanics, storytelling, monetization, and marketing.

Promoting Your Game→ Prior to the release of new user games, weapons, vehicles, and other gaming assets can be distributed in advance. Because the Enjin Platform enables you to create gaming assets that are independent from the actual game, creators can share them with other games built by you or other developers. This empowers users to utilize marketing strategies to grow their user base before and after launch.

Enjin’s Beam is a unique feature of the Enjin Wallet that allows brands to rapidly expand and engage their audience by sending digital rewards via QR codes. You can point the Enjin Wallet’s QR scanner at an Enjin Beam QR code and instantly initiate an Ethereum transaction that sends a valuable blockchain asset to your wallet. The QR code can then be posted anywhere, inside or outside of the app, on any visually accessible surface from social media networks, websites, and videos to flyers, presentations, and billboards. The gamified experience Enjin Beam provides makes it fun for users to scan the published QR code and receive their digital rewards.

Game Monetization→ In real life when you create a sword, you use steel, that steal becomes part of the sword. In virtual worlds powered by Enjin, digital swords are created with Enjin Coin, a cryptocurrency with real-life value, that means the Enjin Coin becomes part of those digital assets. Every game asset created using the Enjin Platform contains Enjin Coin. This adds tangible value to the assets and attracts more players to blockchain-driven gaming economies that offer real-world value that can change their lives.

Latest news, Partnerships and Announcement

Enjin was one of the first companies to partner with Samsung to integrate the Enjin Wallet with the Galaxy S10. Samsung is serious about the Blockchain and made the Enjin Wallet their wallet of choice. Enjin assisted with the development of Samsung’s own native blockchain wallet, which can store cryptocurrencies using a secure on-device private key management system.

Microsoft Western Europe builds Azure Heroes on Enjin
Bridging the gap between Ethereum and Minecraft
May 2020 December 2019

A collaborative, expanding pilot program between Microsoft Western Europe and Enjin was created to emphasize their mission to empower technical practitioners of all backgrounds, through a game that is aimed to inspire developers to learn, coach, and build on Azure and promote healthy, inclusive communities. Azure Heroes rewards developers with blockchain-based digital badges styled as badgers for various achievements, verifiable acts of impact, and meaningful contributions in the developer community. Badgers are awarded to nominated individuals who work to improve the Azure developer community and their own development skills in a variety of ways, from coaching and creating demos to organizing events, building sample code, and blogging about Azure​. Each can be verified on the Ethereum blockchain, with the potential to create new badger designs and categories across different seasons as Azure and its development community continue to grow and evolve.

Enjin released EnjinCraft, their latest addition to the Minecraft ecosystem. EnjinCraft is an open-source blockchain plugin that enables players to easily integrate blockchain assets into their servers with Minecraft Java Edition-without having to write any code. By simply dropping EnjinCraft into their server’s “plugins” folder, Minecraft players can begin integrating and distributing blockchain assets (tokens) through their server, reading players’ blockchain inventory, and providing players with access to unique in-game items and experiences based on the blockchain assets they own. EnjinCraft is the second Minecraft plugin released by Enjin. The team’s first plugin, DonationCraft, is one of the world’s most popular Minecraft plugins, having been downloaded 5.1 million times. With 126 million players monthly and over 200 million copies sold, Minecraft is the best-selling game of all time.
