Enjin Coin & Unity Tech Collaborate for Gaming Asset Integration
Enjin Coin has announced a partnership with the world’s most widely used real-time gaming development platform Unity Tech for the integration of immutable virtual gaming assets.
Enjin is a company that offers 2 core products – Enjin Network and Enjin Virtual Goods Platform with the network serving over 19 million users and over 250,000 communities across the world. The Enjin Coin is a native token of the Virtual goods platform that enables the creation and distribution of immutable and true gaming assets. It has enabled the creation of virtual assets for the popular game Minecraft. The company had done its ICO in October 2017 has raised around 23 million dollars as per ICO Drops.
The partnership allows the Unity developers to access the Enjin SDKs enabling them to create these democratized in game assets. The Unity Platform has been a driver for the creation of many popular games such as Pokemon Go, Temple Run and Kerbal Space Program (Elon Musk is a big fan !) across major platforms such as PS4, SteamVR & Xbox One.
The partnership provides the benefits of creating an in-game economy with minimal fraud and reduced transaction costs while creating a true virtual in-game asset. This becomes a facilitator for increased revenues for game developers providing them another reason to opt for using the Unity-Enjin SDKs for game development.
Another driver for game developers would be the integration of Efinity, a game channel network developed by Enjin that claims to provide Unity developers the ability to fuel scalable and high volume gaming transactions between gamers at high speeds and no costs.
The Enjin team is currently demoing the SDK at Game Developers Conference (GDC), San Francisco which is the world’s most prestigious and largest professional game industry event held between the 19th to 23rd of March, 2018.
This development highlights the maturity of the blockchain technology for integration into a major industry such as gaming. As evidenced by Cryptokitties, we see that the creation and distribution of a true and immutable digital asset would continue to be a major driver for adoption of blockchain technology across industries through the efforts of players such as Enjin.
