Enjin, the leading Ethereum-based developer, announced its partnership with Unity Technologies, enabling the addition of Enjin’s Blockchain SDK [Software Development Kit] testnet version to the front page of the latter’s Asset Store. While there are 45 games, apps, and websites using its unreleased version, the official launch is scheduled for March 14, 2019.
The partnership is aimed at benefiting developers and gamers by allowing them to create, integrate and manage Ethereum-based ERC-1155 assets with ease. Enjin’s smart contracts can be used to deploy and manage ERC-1155 tokens with Blockchain SDK’s user interface. ERC-1155, created by Enjin CTO Witek Radomski, enables faster transactions, lowers the gas fees and reduces the effort required to mass-produce tokens as developers can create unlimited fungible and non-fungible assets with just a single smart contract.
Offering instant interoperability, ERC-1155 provides a persistent, interconnected cross-platform experience as developers can easily integrate any ERC-1155 asset stored on the public Ethereum blockchain. More than 30 Enjin-powered games and platforms are currently using this technology to share select blockchain assets.
Along with the Enjin wallet, this update is said to complete the ecosystem of support required for the widespread adoption of these Ethereum assets.
Additionally, Enjin also announced full support for ERC-1155 on EnjinX, an Ethereum explorer aimed at providing easy access to data, and speeding up the mainstream adoption of blockchain technology. This update will make it easy for users to search, browse and verify ERC-1155 assets and transactions.
Unity is used by 4.5 million developers to create games and the launch of Blockchain SDK on Unity will mean easy integration of ERC-1155 blockchain assets into games for Android, iOS, Xbox, PlayStation, Microsoft, and 25 other mass market platforms.
The blockchain game development platform is scheduled for a demo at GDC, the world’s largest gaming industry event. Six game developers currently building with the Enjin platform will be available at booth S563, located near Intel, Sony, and Microsoft, from March 20-22 to provide an insight on Enjin’s tools. Interested developers can also try out Enjin’s Blockchain SDK on Unity and experience the ‘Multiverse’, a network of connected blockchain games with their own economy, powered by Enjin.
Enjin is also hosting the Official GDC Blockchain Mixer and the Blockchain Game Alliance (BGA), which will include members from Ubisoft, Enjin, and Consensys at the Moscone Center, West Level 2 Overlook 2022, on March 21 at 6:30 pm. GDC attendees are invited to the Mixer for a happy hour and networking with blockchain industry leaders, game developers, and BGA members.
