The last couple weeks saw Enjin continuing to welcome more projects into their growing web of collaborations. Notable moments ranged from smart contracts coming to JumpNet, to Stormrite, and Xbox action RPG niftifying their in-game assets. ENJ holders looking for more real-world utility can head to Shopping.io for some ENJ-enabled deals.
Here’s a brief rundown on who’s hopped onto Enjin’s networks lately.
Enjin’s collaboration with Shopping.io presents possibly the most direct, human utility for ENJ to date. As of last Thursday, ENJ holders can send their tokens beyond the metaverse and into the more established, yet antiquated meatverse, to spend in stores like Amazon, Etsy, Walmart and Ebay.
Shopping.io is essentially the bridge from crypto to traditional Web2 platforms. According to their Medium post, “Shopping.io is the only international crypto on-boarding platform which allows its users to spend their cryptocurrencies on popular e-commerce websites.”
Until September 9, users who pay in ENJ will receive a 2% discount on any item they purchase.
Stormrite, an action RPG game on Xbox and PC launching in 2022 joined the ranks of games using Enjin’s networks to deploy NFTs in their game.
“These NFT items will be redeemable in-game across saves, and will change the appearance of your in-game equipment/companions in unique ways,” they said in their press release.
Stormrite is set in the medieval-fantasy world called Redreach, a land perpetually locked in a state of chaos where you begin as a squire, working up the ranks to eventually lead your armies to victory through a narrative that spins into a web of different endings.
Though they’ll be using Enjin to open up the market of their in-game wearables to the greater world of blockchain, Stormrite maintains that it won’t be the defining feature of the game.
“For players who don’t wish to purchase Stormrite NFTs, the gameplay experience will not be changed at all. Stormrite will be a 100% single-player experience with no pay-to-win features, and we will never deviate from this,” they said.
Blockster is a new social network created for the crypto-minded. It’s a taste of LinkedIn with a bigger emphasis on the greater crypto market. Users can follow projects and their teams, and keep up with marketplace happenings while discussing the tokens of the week.
They want to aggregate the perceived disparate arena of the crypto conversation, which spans from Twitter to Reddit to Coinmarketcap.
They haven’t launched yet, but have over 400,000 people on their waitlist. Those first 400,000 are eligible to receive an NFT, minted and distributed via Enjin’s JumpNet.
Alongside the NFT drop, “…Blockster is hosting an exclusive giveaway of five NFTs backed by 50 Enjin Coin (ENJ) each. All participants will be entered into a random drawing for the chance to win one of the limited-edition NFTs,” according to Enjin’s press release.
A bit of old news, but Bitstamp joined the ranks of exchanges a week and a half ago in supporting the trading of ENJ.
The self-proclaimed “original global crypto exchange” went public with the listing, allowing withdrawals and deposits on August 20, and allowing trading the 23rd.
Stay tuned for more Enjin updates coming next week.
