Enjin Coin (ENJ) is a gaming industry focused blockchain platform that is attempting to enhance economies that are popular in many video games. Founded in 2018 by Maxim Blagov, the Enjin project is concentrating on making blockchain integration into video games as accessible as possible and is marketing itself as an all in one blockchain game development platform.
The Enjin platform allows for both fungible and non-fungible tokens to be issued - the former for collectibles and the latter for in-game currencies that can be used for the trading of in-game items, among other things. Such elements are common in multiple video games, most notably Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games (MMORPGs).
The team has developed an SDK for developers to quickly integrate blockchain tech with a game, but there are several other areas that are seeing development including eSports integration and dapp games.
Upgrades slated for arrival soon include Efinity, a sidechain network for highly scalable token transactions. Development in 2019 is focused on the Enjin wallet, EnjinX (an Ethereum blockchain explorer) and several major improvements to the Enjin Platform.
Most notably, however, Enjin garnered a lot of attention earlier this year as Samsung announced that it would be one of the few tokens with in-built support on its flagship Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphone, which is crypto-friendly. Strategic partners include Unity, NRG and PCGamer, all three prominent names in the gaming industry.
