First, it has been thought that one of the ways to get more people involved with crypto is through gaming, or a gamification experience. In some cases, the players may or may not even know that they are playing on top of a blockchain.
Gaming is already massive, with tech-savvy users everywhere uses mobile devices and desktop computers to play a multitude of games which often feature unique items and collectibles.

Enjin has been quietly leading the way with a number of major solutions to introduce blockchain to gaming, with their own SDKs, marketplace, and eventually their own blockchain.
