Enjin Coin is a platform that allows its users to build decentralized games based on the revolutionary blockchain technology. But one of the biggest problems faced by this technology right now is scalability. Scalability is one of the major metrics to decide the efficiency and performance of a blockchain network. In order to get to know how Enjin tackles this issue, BlockPublisher got in touch with the Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of the platform, Maxim Blagov.
Talking about how Enjin manages scalability, Maxim stated:
Since Enjin Coin’s inception, we have been committed to creating a highly scalable game development platform that can be used in mainstream games. In order to make this happen and scale Enjin Coin to millions of users, we are developing Efinity, a game-channel network for performing highly scalable gaming transactions. Our ERC-1155 token standard already enables developers to cut gas fees by up to 90% when minting new tokens. It also enables batch transactions that allow game developers to mint and send items to up to 100 different blockchain addresses at a time.
Further talking about Efinity, Maxim stated:
Efinity will be capable of supporting a virtually endless number of video games and performing nearly infinite volumes of transactions between millions of players and the game server —at high speeds and miniscule costs. These transactions remain trustless and verified on the Ethereum blockchain. Efinity will also have the ability to support more complex functionality, such as token transfers and approvals, melting, escrow of multiple tokens, token bundles, and more.
The blockchain technology can surely help revolutionize various industries and sectors besides just finance. Enjin presents forward an interesting use-case of this technology in the game development arena.
The currency of the platform, the Enjin Coin (ENJ), is currently ranked at 125 on CoinMarketCap at the time of writing. One of the interesting features of this platform is the easy development of dApp games even if one is not an experienced Solidity developer.
As suggested by some experts, moving forward in time, only those crypto projects are expected to survive that present forward viable use-cases and bring some actual real-life value. It will be interesting to see how things pan out for Enjin Coin from here on.
