Video: How Enjin went from Minecraft servers to a blockchain game platform
Highlights from Blockchain Gamer Connects San Francisco 2018
Having spent the past 10 years creating a successful company enabling people to set up Minecraft servers, it might seem Enjin’s transformation into a blockchain is a sharp transition.
But according to CTO Witek Radomski, speaking at Blockchain Gamer Connects San Francisco 2018, its existing business provides the perfect starting point for its ambitions.
For one thing, those existing subscribers can already start paying using the Enjin Coin token (ENJ).
They can also start playing around with Enjin’s blockchain item platform, which enables people to create custom tokens for their services, all of which are linked back to ENJ.
Deals with the likes of Unity, Unreal, Lumberyard and Godot mean that over time all developers will gain easy access to the platform, while under the surface, Enjin is also working on Efinity, which is its own blockchain infrastructure.
It uses Plasma and state channels to provide the scalability that the Ethereum mainnet currently struggles with.
