Enjin Coin (ENJ) is up seven percent on the day after a positive week of trading. Touting new partnerships and making solid headlines, this blockchain gaming platform and associated cryptocurrency are looking to regain lost ground after the huge drop felt by the entire market over the past months. While Bitcoin (BTC) slows down after testing $10k in the last week, Enjin Coin (ENJ) is revving up, to the delight of gamers of hodlers worldwide.

Enjin, the gaming platform known for their innovative platform allowing developers to mint their own crypto using Enjin Coin (ENJ) as a parent currency, has been back in the headlines recently with news of a partnership with Unity Technologies. Unity is, of course, the world’s most popular real-time development platform. The news has sent Enjin Coin (ENJ) soaring recently, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. The consistent spike in price since the announcement continues to give the team some well-deserved attention as Bitcoin (BTC) and a number of rival blockchain-gaming companies fall back.

The coin now sits near $.16, well below the market peak nearing $.50 last January. Still, the recent developments are spurring new investment in this up-and-coming crypto-company, giving hope to a potential future where the coin can again challenge its previous all-time highs. There are over 750 Million coins circulating now, and with the recent price increase, Enjin Coin (ENJ) ranks in the top 150 cryptocurrencies on the market.

Enjin is by far the largest of the available social gaming-website platforms available. With nineteen million gamers attracted to their site, and hosting over 250,000 gaming communities, it is no wonder that partnerships keep lining up for this soon-to-be giant in the crypto-universe. Their customize-able cryptocurrency is now trading on nine exchanges, reaching worldwide markets through the likes of Binance, Okex, HitBTC and more.

The team made a recent appearance at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, known as E3. The premier trade event for the video game industry, E3 continues to grow with users and an excited audience dedicated to gaming. With the industry’s top professionals gathering to give presentations to over 68,000 attendees, Enjin (ENJ) was able to capitalize on their Unity partnership, connecting with executives and gamers alike at the expo.

A favorite in the blockchain gaming industry, Enjin and it’s associated cryptocurrency, Enjin Coin (ENJ), are likely just getting started as the team seeks to hold and add to gains for the remainder of the year. With a solid performance over the past month, likely due to the announcement of the new partnership with Unity, it would seem this ‘little Enjin that could’ may just grow into the powerful locomotive we all know it can be.

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
