Enjin and CoinSwitch have entered into partnership to create a Unity-based payment gateway and the ability to seamlessly exchange crypto within the Enjin wallet app.
The news was announced by CoinSwitch in a Medium blog post.
Back in 2009, Enjin launched the Enjin Network – a gaming community platform. Since then it has gone on to develop a suite of blockchain-based products that aid game developers in creating in-game virtual assets.
CoinSwitch is a crypto exchange aggregation platform which has been live for two years. It enables people to purchase more than 300 cryptocurrencies by comparing rates across popular exchanges such as Binance, Huobi, HitBTC and KuCoin.
Unity is a cross-platform and real-time video game engine developed by Unity Technologies. Unity has seen some massively popular titles be released under its name including Pokémon Go, Angry Birds Epic and and Fallout Shelter.
The move will allow Enjin wallet users to exchange more than 300 cryptocurrencies, from more than 45,000 available trading pairs, without leaving the Enjin wallet app.
The partnership has also seen the rise of a CoinSwitch-branded block explorer powered by EnjinX. This means users can search, browse and verify their transactions in real time.
They will also be releasing a cryptocurrency payment gateway with Unity, Shopify and WordPress plugins to grant developers the function to accept more than 300 cryptocurrencies from players for the purchase of in-game assets.
CoinSwitch will automatically convert the crypto into Enjin Coin – which is a minting resource developers can utilise to create decentralised assets with the Enjin platform.
To celebrate the collaboration, CoinSwitch will be offering a two-month “grace” period where all trading fees will be waived on the purchase of Enjin Coin made on the CoinSwitch platform.
