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.

Cryptocurrencies – a term which has become incredibly prominent in the mainstream media during recent years due to the proliferation of Bitcoin millionaires. As a result, the new form of currency has earned an almost infamous status. However, as with any major step forward, there is still much confusion regarding the use of cryptocurrencies, what different types of innovative electronic cash exist and what they might mean for the future.

We’re putting all of this to rest as we explain what each of the leading cryptocurrencies can do.

Bitcoin

The most popular form of cryptocurrency, Bitcoin was first thought up in 2008 by the elusive and still unknown creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, who published the whitepaper online.

It took almost a decade for the cryptocurrency to reach its peak, but in December 2017 a single Bitcoin roughly exchanged for the price of $17,000, meaning anyone who held a substantial amount of the electronic cash became significantly wealthy.

In its early years, the cryptocurrency was strictly used as an alternative for cash transactions, and predominantly for trading goods and services. However as it has increased in popularity, its range of uses has also widened, now deployed for a variety of purposes including acting as collateral for investments at merchant banks, a direct debit for subscriptions services and most notably for sports betting.

New DoJ Ruling May Cripple Gambling dApps

A new decision made by the US Justice Department has expanded restrictions regarding online gambling in the US affecting gambling dApps. While the Federal Wire Act of 1961 prohibited online gambling regarding sports since 2011, the new decision expanded on this, and it now includes all forms of internet gambling. Unfortunately for many, this now also includes cryptocurrencies.

The new decision came due to considerable difficulties when it comes to guaranteeing that only interstate betting will take place and that payments will not be routed via different states.

The new announcement was explained in a 23-page-long opinion issued by the Department of Justice’s legal team, which pointed out that the 2011 decision misinterpreted the law. According to that decision, transferring funds was to be considered a violation, but data transfers were not included. By exploiting this oversight, it was possible for gamblers to turn to internet gambling. Unsurprisingly, many have realized this early on, including startups, as well as large, established firms. This, of course, also included cryptocurrency companies as well.
