Chiliz, the cryptocurrency fuelling football fan voting platform Socios.com, will be developing Ethereum-based branded digital collectibles for the sports and entertainment industry under a newly formed partnership with blockchain gaming community platform Enjin.
According to the announcement, Chiliz will take advantage of the Enjin platform to create ERC-1155 standard non-fungible token collectibles for Socios.com football and e-sports partners.
The collectible NFTs will be supported by Enjin Coin and available for trading on the Enjin marketplace using ENJ and CHZ.
The digital assets will also be created using Enjin’s ERC-1155 standard, which is used to mint fungible and non-fungible tokens in a single smart contract.
Maxim Blagov, CEO of Enjin, said:
We are delighted to collaborate with Chiliz and explore a new way to gamify sports and e-sports fan engagement, and we look forward to working with them to produce unique collectibles that fans can cherish and enjoy
He added that sports fits Enjin’s brand and its expanding collection of blockchain gamification use cases.
Alexandre Dreyfus, CEO of Chiliz & Socios.com, also noted that working with Enjin will help his company improve and expand the use of CHZ in and beyond 2020.
