I want to share with you a smart cryptocurrency for gaming called Enjin Coin (ENJ). Enjin coin is a customizable cryptocurrency and virtual item platform for gaming. Enjin coin features a decentralized platform used to create, manage, distribute, and trade virtual items. This presents new opportunities for both players and developers in how virtual items are managed. You may be wondering what a virtual item is or why anyone may want a virtual item. Virtual items are a prominent source of income for game developers including but not limited to: Counter Strike Global Offensive, Fortnite, and many others. A virtual item may include:
- cosmetic skin to change the look of an in-game character, i.e., Fortnite, a recently released free-to-play game offers cosmetic skins that can be purchased with money.
- weapon skin that changes the look of a weapon, i.e, CS: GO has an entire market place full of weapon skins.
As you can see, some of these weapon skins reach up to $1900. While CS: GO does not use Enjin’s platform, this shows the potential value Enjin coin offers. There are currently 1,460,000 members ready to use Enjin coin. A list including Minecraft can be viewed here. This is exciting and revolutionary to the gaming world in how we create, manage, distribute, and trade virtual items.
