Enjin is Creating a Real-Life Ready Player One, and It’s Powered by Blockchain

Enjin has launched blockchain asset support for EnjinX, the world’s
fastest Ethereum explorer, providing a universal library of
next-generation ERC-1155 blockchain assets and supporting the creation
of a decentralized, interconnected gaming experience like the 2018 box
office hit Ready Player One.

SINGAPORE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%24ENJ&src=ctag" target="_blank"gt;$ENJlt;/agt; lt;a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/blockchain?src=hash" target="_blank"gt;#blockchainlt;/agt;–Enjin has announced
the launch of blockchain asset support
to EnjinX,
the world’s fastest Ethereum explorer. The highly-anticipated update
includes full ERC-1155 integration, enabling gamers to search, browse,
and verify next-generation Ethereum blockchain
assets
via EnjinX’s clean, intuitive interface. In the announcement,
Enjin also revealed additional information about their Blockchain Gaming
Multiverse, which will be comparable to a real-life, decentralized Ready
Player One
.


Since EnjinX’s launch in December, the highly flexible blockchain
explorer has quickly grown in popularity. To date, five leading token
exchange platforms—Changelly,
COSS,
Kyber
Network
, GDAC,
and Kriptomat—have
collaborated with Enjin to create branded explorers using EnjinX’s
technology, providing their users with a seamless transaction
verification experience. Changelly,
GDAC,
and Kriptomat
have also used the Enjin
Platform
to create ERC-1155 blockchain assets, which users can now
browse via a custom platform-branded EnjinX interface.

Created
by Enjin CTO Witek Radomski
and developed alongside a thriving
community of leading Github developers
, ERC-1155 has been heralded
as the next-generation Ethereum token standard. Because of its
standardized data structures, any developer that integrates one ERC-1155
asset can integrate other similar Ethereum blockchain assets into their
games, apps, and websites with very little extra effort. This creates an
ecosystem perfect for inter-platform operability of assets, which Enjin
calls a “Multiverse.”

Unlike Ready Player One, Enjin’s Blockchain Gaming Multiverse is
a decentralized network of games and is not owned or controlled by one
party. Thus, the battle between corporate greed and freedom of the
masses seen in the film’s OASIS won’t be possible in the
real-life version.

“A multiverse is created when multiple games and platforms choose to
integrate and support shared in-game items, thus connecting separate
gaming universes through inter-game operability of blockchain assets,”
Enjin stated in the
announcement
. “This provides players an experience in which they can
move through multiple worlds while taking their inventory with them.”

Now that EnjinX users can freely browse blockchain assets, Enjin has
revealed further information regarding the Multiverse
asset
s they’ve created, which are currently being integrated into
more than 35 interconnected games, apps, and websites.

Enjin will also be creating an inter-game treasure hunt, much like the
quest featured in Ready Player One. In this “Multiverse Quest,”
players will move across multiple gaming worlds, gathering items to
unlock collections and ultimately lead them to the grand prize, “the
Monolith
.” Backed by 1,155,777 Enjin Coin (ENJ), the Monolith was
the first ERC-1155 token ever minted.

Just last month, Enjin also launched their Blockchain
SDK for Unity
and the Enjin
Platform
to Ethereum’s Testnet, enabling developers to create and
manage blockchain games without writing any blockchain-related code.
Currently, more than 2,000 games, apps, and websites are using the Enjin
Platform to create and integrate ERC-1155 blockchain assets. Developers
interested in creating or joining a Multiverse can sign
up here
to start using this powerful suite of blockchain game
development tools.

About Enjin

In 2009, Enjin launched the Enjin Network, a gaming community platform
which now boasts over 20 million users. In 2017 following a successful
ICO that raised $18.9 million, Enjin began building a suite of
blockchain products that enable anyone to easily create, manage, trade,
store, explore, distribute, and integrate blockchain assets. Comprised
of the Enjin Platform, Explorer, Wallet, Beam, and other tools &
services, Enjin’s tools enables game developers and studios to utilize
tokenized digital assets as part of their acquisition, retention,
engagement, and monetization strategies. The Enjin ecosystem is fueled
by Enjin Coin (ENJ), an Ethereum-based cryptocurrency used to directly
back the value of Enjin-powered blockchain assets. For more information,
