Will ENJ reach $100?

The blockchain gaming and collectibles sector is posting impressive growth. It's expected to continue doing so for years to come. By utilizing a platform like Enjin, developers can sell in-game items easily through NFTs. These NFTs can be used on multiple platforms. Enjin is trying to bridge cryptocurrencies and gaming. The future of online gaming is very bright and Enjin’s platform powers innovative projects across the gaming ecosystem. This should lead to a rise in the value of the platform and simultaneously the tokens backing it. However, with a lot of upside potential, reaching a value of $100 from the current $1.24 could be still a long time away. The momentum should be on the upside.

Enjin Coin is a good investment.

In March 2021, Enjin secured multimillion-dollar funding in a private token sale led by Crypto.com Capital, DFG Group, and Hashed. The funding will help it migrate its upcoming public blockchain Efinity to Polkadot. It's doing this to avoid high gas fees on the Ethereum network and increase the scalability of NFTs. Efinity is slated for release sometime this year.

Through new projects, improvements to existing projects, and the rising popularity of mobile and online gaming, the Enjin platform is expected to gain in value. This makes Enjin Coin seem like a good investment.

Coinbase lets you buy Enjin with money in a bank account as well as other cryptocurrencies, which you might already have on Coinbase. On Binance, you can buy ENJ with either Bitcoin or Tether. Tether is pegged to the dollar. Then you can store your Enjin coins on an exchange or offline.
