Finally, simplify use
Enjin offers an Ethereum-based cryptocurrency that allows users to create and redeem immutable tokens. Enjin is home to over 250,000 gaming communities and the creator of Enjin Coin.

Real ownership of game items in the multiverse.
Enjin’s platform was built for Ethereum, but the new Efinity blockchain was launched on Polkadot. This is a next-generation blockchain that will make onboarding even easier for mainstream users. They won’t even need to own a wallet to start receiving NFTs, lowering barriers to entry. Here is a simple use case, companies like Microsoft (Azure) use the platform to give recognition badges and certifications to the Open Source developer community to attend events, mentor, generate code, proving and verifying that they are a true member. Azure community. The entire blockchain can be integrated into an online world map showing which countries/users have which badges.

From Bitcoin payment applications to Ethereum smart contracts, every blockchain protocol has its own use cases. What many lack is interoperability. Polkadot is breaking down the silos that once kept blockchains insulated from each other, providing new ways for them to communicate with each other. This is a defining feature that will expand the long-term impact that blockchains can have.
NFTs bring legacy platforms back to life
The news that Napster is joining the web3 and NFT space in the music industry follows a similar announcement from LimeWire. Those who know the beginning of the web (2000) must have used Napster, which fought the system of the greats by offering free music downloads to its 80 million users until it closed. According to a report from The Verge, peer-to-peer music sharing company Napster was acquired with the aim of turning the company into an NFT music brand. Napster has been acquired by crypto investment firm Hivemind and Algorand, the operator of a decentralized blockchain and the company behind the Algorand token. The Alogrand blockchain will be used for the launch of Napster. Then I regret not taking a screenshot and converting it to NFT after 20 years 🙂

Shopify gains momentum in crypto payments
Shopify has partnered with Crypto.com so that merchants can accept cryptocurrency payments from customers via Crypto.com Pay. Crypto.com waives a one-month settlement fee (0.5% per transaction) for Shopify merchants who integrate Crypto.com Pay into their payments for a limited time. The recent crypto exit lost 40% of its market cap in mid-May 2022, likely to affect crypto payments adoption in the near term. But participation from big companies like Shopify should support long-term growth.
The number of crypto payment users in the United States will reach 3.6 million in 2022, representing only 10.7% of crypto holders in the United States.

When someone comes along, they usually don’t research the project before they buy it and usually buy the asset right after the project is launched. The term is derived from a meme from the movie “Rise of Planet of the Apes”.

Polygon on Web3 Twitter
Web3 company Aave has released a social media platform similar to Twitter using the Polygon blockchain. The new project, called Lens Protocol, uses NFTs for a unique web3 social experience.
