Hong Kong-based cryptocurrency payments platform Crypto.com announced the listing of Basic Attention Token (BAT) and Enjin (ENJ) to its Wallet & Card App.
With the integration, ENJ and BAT join Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Binance Coin (BNB), XRP, and Crypto.com-native tokens MCO and CRO. Users can buy, sell, and store their digital assets on the app, as well as being able to spend them at any Visa-compatible payment terminal with the MCO Visa Card.
Enjin is a blockchain game development platform that allows developers easy access to the creation and integration of Ethereum-based tokenized gaming assets for their digital economies. Games using the platform already include War of Crypto and mobile dapp Forest Knight.
The company made headlines last month when it was announced that the Samsung Galaxy S10 will ship with an Enjin-powered wallet.
Speaking in a press release, Enjin Co-founder and CEO Maxim Blagov expressed his elation at the listing:
“We are excited to provide game developers and adopters of the Enjin Platform with an easy option of purchasing ENJ through the Crypto.com app, as well as making it extremely easy to use Enjin Coin as currency with the MCO Visa Card. We look forward to partnering with Crypto.com to explore even more opportunities to increase the adoption of blockchain technology as we continue to push this movement towards mainstream usability.”
Following the integration, ENJ saw a significant price rise. At the time of writing, it is trading at $0.165, with 24-hour gains of almost 9%.
Basic Attention Token (BAT)
BAT is a utility token by Brave Software Inc. It is designed for use on the Brave platform and web browser, a fast and secure privacy-focused browser with a built-in ad blocker.
Users can set up donations (in BAT) which are distributed on a monthly basis based on the sites you visit the most often. Content creators, in turn, can set up their site to be able to accept Brave payments from users. In future, users will be able to opt-in to view Brave ads, and receive BAT from advertisers for viewing ads.
The Brave browser sees over 5.5 million monthly active users, and boasts almost 30,000 Verified Publishers, including recently LA Times.
Regarding the integration into their app, Crypto.com CEO Kris Marszalek said:
“Crypto.com shares the same goal as the Brave team – to eliminate the middleman with the power of blockchain. We are keen to support their goals in the advertising sector, and by bringing onboard BAT users we are yet another step closer to accelerating the world’s transition to cryptocurrency.”
BAT saw similar price gains following the integration announcement, currently trading at around $0.327, with 24-hour gains of almost 7%.
