Enjin Project and Unity Technologies Partner to Open Blockchain SDK on Ethereum Testnet
The Enjin platform has gone ahead to collaborate with Unity Technologies; this is the company that created the Unity game engine. The partnership was developed so as to help in the launch of a test net version of SDK, which was a former blockchain for the Unity platform. They are planning to demo it during the upcoming GDC, Game Developers Conference, that is being held in San Francisco on the 18th of March this year.
🗓️ It's official: The Blockchain SDK is coming to the Unity @AssetStore on March 14!
In just 9 days, 4.5 million @unity3d developers will be able to easily create & integrate ERC-1155 #Ethereum blockchain assets into games for over 25 mass market platforms.#unitydev #unity3d pic.twitter.com/28JZaWf6z5

The Enjin team is very excited about the move as they believe the partnership they have gotten into with Unity will be able to enable it to add the Enjin blockchain SDK straight to the front page of the company Asset store. As a result, this will make the development of the blockchain game tools to a large group of Unity developers who are spread across the globe.
Therefore, moving forward both Enjin and Unity will go ahead and start launching a very aggressive co-marketing campaign to ensure they gain maximum traction within the Unity community, a community that has been based on millions of leading developers.
The Move Is Very Exciting For All
The Blockchain SDK has been considered to be a labor of love, one that has been developed by Enjins best team of developers, who have been able to work tirelessly for the likes of Activision, BioWare, EA, and Interactive. The Enjin company goes ahead to state that they went ahead to partner with the Unity platform and were able to build a blockchain SDK that can benefit the gamers and developers in the market.
It is able to help the game studios to be able to quickly meet there high KPIs needed for monetization, virality, retention, and valuation, thus being able to advance the true item ownership rapidly and also being able to fuel users with new game experiences.
The ERC-1155 Is Coming To The EnjinX This Month
With the use of the Blockchain SDK, it will easily enable the app and game developers to be able to create and also integrate the ERC-1155, which has been considered to be the next generation within the blockchain assets, this will be incorporated easily into the games and from here they will be able to manage their distribution with ease.
The ERC-1155 data structures are standardized, therefore the next generation blockchain assets will be able to offer instant interoperability. What this means is that the developers will be able to integrate any of the ERC-1155 assets that are stored on the public Ethereum blockchain without having to undergo any extra effort.
At the moment there are more than 45 games, websites, and apps that have been able to adopt the ERC-1155, and many of these have opted to share some of the assets; thus, this has enabled the different users to efficiently utilize the virtual item across the different platforms and games.
It is expected that later on this month there will be full support of the ERC-1155 tokens, they are coming to the world’s fastest explorer within the Ethereum blockchain, the EnjinX.
With this in place, it will be able to allow the different users to quickly browse, search and even verify the ERC-1155 transaction and asset with ease.
It Has Been Considered To Be The Future Of Gaming
When looking at the context of gaming, the blockchain assets have been viewed to be the same as the gaming items. The only thing that is different is their history, their identity, ownership together with all the other critical information that pertains to the value stored on the transparent and immutable blockchain.
Therefore, as a game developer, when a player logs in your game and goes ahead to sync their blockchain address, you will be able to see there on chain inventory. And from this, you can go ahead and provide the player with a corresponding in-game item.
