It is mainly used in the Enjin platform for NFT’s artwork, as a cryptocurrency, and as a digital currency for video games. ENJ doesn’t have the highest rank among its competitors but it’s certainly the oldest and mature player in the game with the highest volume and returns.

Even though the last 6 months have been volatile for the crypto community as a whole, Enjin has held up well in terms of price staying in the stable zone. The volume of the asset has been somewhat stable with little fluctuation which might be attributed to the fact that ENJ’s total supply is just 1 billion while its counterparts like MANA have 2.17 Billion and SAND has 3 billion. More than ⅔ supply of ENJ is in circulation making it a scarce asset that has a legacy and a giant gaming tech Enjin backing it up. The NFT’s and gaming are red hot now and history will be kind to Enj if it makes the right blows.
