It has been a great year for Enjin so far. Enjin is currently up more than 700% in the past 30 days and that is most likely because of the Samsung rumors. Now Enjin announces a new wallet update as well as a huge giveaway to their network of 20 million gamers.
Today, Enjin announced a major update to the Enjin Wallet, which is currently rolling out to Google Play and the App Store. The update includes a “reveal code” feature that enables retailers, game studios, and other businesses to send ERC-1155 Ethereum-based blockchain assets containing hidden messages via the Enjin Beam QR system. When unveiled, these reveal codes can deliver benefits such as discounts, gift cards, event tickets, and product keys. Upon receiving an asset with an attached reveal code, users can choose to keep the code hidden for later use, or to reveal it—enabling them (and only them) to view and use the attached message.
This technology can be used by any customer-facing business to boost customer acquisition and engage their existing audience by placing QR codes with promotional assets onto any visually accessible advertising medium.
A working example has been made by Enjin, providing its users with the opportunity to scan a QR code which, if you were lucky, contained reveal codes with discounts and gift certificates for major brands such as Google Play, iTunes, PlayStation, and Xbox, as well as for games powered by the Enjin Platform.
The new Enjin Wallet update also enables real-time device notifications for all incoming ERC-20 cryptocurrencies and ERC-1155 blockchain assets—a function available for both owned and watched wallets. The update also includes improvements to Enjin’s in-wallet token swap, which enables users to convert nearly 200 cryptocurrencies via native integration of Kyber Network, Changelly, and Bancor Network, as well as an updated transaction page that links directly to the transaction information on Enjin’s Ethereum blockchain explorer, EnjinX.
Along with the new wallet update, Enjin also announced ongoing blockchain asset giveaways for their Enjin Network users. Using the newly added Enjin Wallet features, Enjin will distribute hundreds of thousands of valuable ERC-1155 blockchain assets, such as Multiverse items that can be used in over 35 interconnected games, apps, and websites. You can also melt these next-generation Ethereum-based assets into Enjin Coin. You can use the Enjin Coins to pay for Enjin Network subscriptions or to mint new ERC-1155 tokens.
Enjin Coin is primarily used for creating blockchain assets. While it can be used as a method of payment, ENJ’s core purpose and function are as a token that can be used by developers, business people, and entrepreneurs to mint crypto assets. These assets can be used for a multi-purpose: by games as characters, weapons or vehicles; by retail as collectibles, memberships, or vouchers; and by any business that can benefit from rewarding their customers or employees — to name just a few and furthermore the gaming assets can be used cross-games in the ‘Multiverse’. There are currently 45 games and platforms using the unreleased version of the Enjin Platform, which has been used to create over 41 million Ethereum-based ERC-1155 assets containing 9,700,005 ENJ.
Set to launch to the Unity Asset Store on March 14, Enjin’s Blockchain SDK will provide a straightforward process for developers wanting to create and integrate Ethereum-based ERC-1155 assets into over 25 mass market platforms, such as Android, iOS, Xbox, PlayStation, and Oculus Rift.
Enjin will be showcasing their blockchain game development platform, including the Blockchain SDK for Unity, at GDC 2019 alongside six game developers that are currently building with the Enjin Platform. Interested developers can stop by booth S563 from March 20-22 to learn more about Enjin’s tools and try out the Blockchain SDK.
