Enjin launches new digital asset marketplace

1st October 2019 1 By Jordan Heal

Blockchain gaming company Enjin has launched its long-awaited digital asset marketplace to facilitate the trading of in-game, blockchain-based items.

The marketplace is a peer-to-peer (P2P) platform where users can purchase or sell various blockchain assets and gaming loot.

The newly launched hub has also been natively integrated with Enjin’s own blockchain wallet.

The marketplace supports the popular ERC-1155 token standard which was adopted by Ethereum earlier this year.

Trading assets has been made seamless through the addition of QR codes for each item, which can be scanned for purchase.

To sell an item, all users need to do is select it and determine its selling price before listing it at the click of a button.

Enjin’s new marketplace already boasts several blockchain assets that have been created through the Enjin platform, which enables developers to create and integrate ERC-1155-based tokens into their projects with ease.

“Trading blockchain assets has never been easier or more secure,” says Maxim Blagov, Enjin CEO.

“As the first native cross-platform trading experience to be integrated directly into a blockchain wallet, the Enjin marketplace provides users with a seamless, simplistic trading process via the most secure wallet available.”

One of the items currently listed is the ‘Flashbang’, a charity item created by non-profit organisation Stack Up.

The charity supports military service members with the help of video games and is currently partnered with PlayStation and Oculus.

To celebrate the launch, Enjin will also be hosting an ERC-1155 giveaway. Participants will have the chance to win thousands of prizes backed by a grand total of 30,000 Enjin Coin.
