Enjin’s new Blockchain Software Development Kit (SDK) for Unity could be the start of some big changes in how games are designed. Unity already has a massive developer base of more than 4 million game designers. Enjin has created a new way to use Ethereum-based ERC-1155 tokens that may be a perfect fit for the gaming world.
ERC-1155 have some interesting characteristics. Enjin thinks they will be useful to game developers because Ethereum-based ERC-1155 tokens can be made in both fungible and non- fungible varieties in unlimited quantities with a single smart contract. They are also a lot ‘cheaper’ to use and probably won’t choke up the Ethereum network like ERC-721 tokens have.
If that paragraph sounded like technical jargon, no problem. In plain English, Enjin’s ERC-1155 tokens will allow game developers to create items that can be either identical or unique and can also be traded with the reliability and transparency that blockchain creates.
Modern games use countless items in their game design and game developers…
