Enjin (ENJ) Launches the ‘Mintshop’ for Crafting Custom Blockchain ItemsNovember 01, 2018 07:49
Enjin (ENJ), a blockchain project building a decentralized ecosystem for gaming, has launched its “Mintshop,” a new blockchain item creation service that allows users to rapidly create custom assets via a simple online store.
According to the announcement, users can now submit requests for ERC-1155 tokens, and one of the project’s “Enjineers” will craft your blockchain assets for them. These tokens enable items to be stored on a single contract with the minimum possible amount of data needed to distinguish that item from others within the contract.
“Creating blockchain assets normally requires writing and deploying smart contracts to the blockchain. However, as an out-of-the-box solution, Mintshop allows users to create both fungible (identical) and non-fungible (unique) token items powered by a robust suite of smart contracts—all by simply submitting a name, description, image and placing an order. Mintshop customers can mint up to 10,000 custom-branded ERC-1155 tokens for as little as $0.03 per token within minutes,” said the Enjin team in the release.
These tokens can be anything from in-game assets and collectibles, to rewards or discounts on purchases. Each item is fully backed by Enjin Coin (ENJ) and the project is using all Mintshop profits to buy back ENJ for adoption purposes.
This news comes just weeks after Enjin released an update for its wallet that allows for the direct melting of ERC-1155 tokens to ENJ. This means that the tokens created via Mintshop can easily be converted back to ENJ to further facilitate digital value creation.
The launch of the Mintshop is a big step forward for Enjin’s game development platform, as developers can now more easily create non-fungible items to enhance their games.
