Enjin’s Blockchain Game Development Platform Launches on Ethereum
Enjin has just made the announcement of an Ethereum game development platform’s launch, platform that will enable developers from all over the world to incorporate crypto assets into apps and games without having the knowledge on how to write blockchain code.
For more than two years, we've been building an integrated ecosystem to help blur the line between the imaginary and real.

The news was released on Tuesday and it says that game engineers will be able to benefit from what decentralized inventory has to offer, from integrating both gaming and non-gaming assets based on blockchain and from managing economic mechanics when it comes to the game play. Here’s what Maxim Blagov, Enjin’s CEO, said in a press release about the platform:
“Our platform is designed to integrate seamlessly into new and existing games alike, providing a competitive edge to studios of all sizes and across all genres.”
The ERC-1155 Token Standard Supported
The Enjin Platform is comprised of many services and tools based on supporting Ethereum’s ERC-1155 token standard web interface that developers may use in order to integrate non-fungible (NFTs) and fungible tokens in a smart contract. NFTs are used for crypto collectibles and most known for having some rare aspects. They use the Enjin coin (ENJ) to back the in-game assets’ value.
Over 2,500 Projects Already Created
According to Enjin, over 2,500 projects that use ERC-1155 have been created on the Enjin Platform’s testnet version. The standard technology is the same with the one used by the Microsoft’s blockchain-based Azure Heroes contributor program for rewards.
Enjin has more planned and it has confirmed the public release in Q2 2020 of the Godot blockchain software development kit (SDK), its well-known open source game engine. Here’s what Witek Radomski, Enjin’s CTO had to say about what managing blockchain assets at his company means:
“For the last 12 years, minting, deploying and managing blockchain assets has been a challenging process that required specialized knowledge, but this all changes today.”
