The State of Enjin 2022

Enjin Coin (ENJ) is an ERC-1155 token that streamlines the process of minting non-fungible tokens (NFTs) in its ecosystem. Enjin provides gamers with an open ecosystem, which drastically differs from the traditional “*Closed Garden*” ecosystem that is used by game developers. It allows one to use items that are indigenous to a specific game to be used and transferred to other games. ENJ coin can also be used to buy other items on Enjin’s ecosystem.

An overview of Enjin and its ecosystem updates for 2022.


What is Enjin?

Enjin is an NFT disbursement platform that harbors its own giant market space that is heavily focused on the gaming industry. Enjin Coin (ENJ) is an Ethereum token that streamlines the process of minting non-fungible tokens (NFTs) in its ecosystem.


Enjin provides gamers with an open ecosystem, which drastically differs from the traditional “Closed Garden” ecosystem that is used by game developers. It allows one to use items that are indigenous to a specific game to be used and transferred to other games. This, in turn, provides game developers with the ability to create games using these items as well as a means for gamers to store and discover assets.


A unique aspect of Enjin for game developers is notably the advent of the ERC-1155 standard.

This innovative addition to NFT smart contracts allows for a closer simulation of the expected in-game item rarity.


The Significance of ERC-1155

In 2018, the CTO of Enjin, Witek Radomski, developed the ERC-1155 token. The ERC-1155 token was a major improvement in comparison to the ERC-20 and ERC-721 token standards as it

incorporates the benefits of both fungible and non-fungible tokens.


It is important to note that this gives game developers an easier time implementing crypto assets into their games, especially when considering the market valuation of items and the melting process.


Every NFT minted using Enjin’s system contains a certain amount of the ENJ coin, the item can also be ‘melted’, which reverses the minting process of an NFT and converts it back into ENJ coin; ENJ coin can also be used to buy other items on Enjin’s ecosystem.


What Partnerships does Enjin have?

Enjin has a number of corporate partnerships that have allowed their community and development to gain traction.

Global Tourism Leveraging Enjin’s Product Stack

The increased usage and incorporation of digital technology in both Millennials and Gen Z fosters a higher demand for digital experiences in the real world. Due to these demographics, New Frontier has incorporated NFTs into global tourism using Enjin’s blockchain product stack and BEAM QR codes.


This provides tourists with an enhanced experience that also provides various prizes, activities, and programs such as games, treasure hunts, rewards and loyalty programs, storytelling, event access, etc.


New Frontier’s implementation of NFTs within tourism is a growing process, with the team already working with tourism bodies in the UK, Mexico, New Zealand, and Spain; in addition to earlier collaborations with Visit Arran, The Great Tapestry of Scotland, Gencat Cataluña, ‍Quintana Roo Regional Government, and the ‍Victoria & Albert Museum.


New Frontier anticipates partnerships and educational campaigns in Q2, Q3, and Q4 of 2022 as well as the foreseeable future.


Ecosystem Report - May 2022

Notable milestones emphasized in Efinity’s ecosystem report include the following:

  • Achieving the first Polkadot NFT parachain with over 7 million DOT tokens being contributed by users in support.
  • Efinity Mainnet launched allowing gamer developers to benefit from server-side wallets in order to facilitate ease of use for their fans.
  • A partnership announcement with another prominent Polkadot project: Acala. This partnership will allow Efinity’s EFI token to be easily transferrable within the Polkadot ecosystem.


In closing, Efinity and the Enjin token have a bright future in the GameFi sector. They’ve established strong partnerships and are developing towards unique, powerful products that have already gained significant user adoption.
