Blockchain game development platform Enjin (ENJ) has been selected by augmented reality (AR) app developer VREX Lab as the host network of fast-rising Dyverse, a blockchain-based marketplace dApp that allows users to collect, breed, and play with 3D crypto-collectible monsters – called Kydys – which can be plugged into VREX Lab’s AR video messaging app, Kydy.
The news that VREX Lab would be collaborating with Enjin to integrate Kydys and other items and characters from Enjin’s partner games (i.e., the Enjin Multiverse) into the Dyverse marketplace and the Enjin Wallet dropped on Thursday via this announcement. In it, the AR app developer also revealed that they had launched the blockchain-based Dyverse platform on Product Hunt, a popular website that lets users share and discover new products.

Dyverse Soars to 2nd Among Ethereum NFTs
The dual-announcements from VREX Lab regarding Dyverse appear to have sparked interest within the budding crypto-gaming and crypto-collectible community. Looking to leading Ethereum block explorer Etherscan, Dyverse is ranked – at the time of writing – second for 24-hour transfers in and out of smart contracts that comply with ERC-721 (i.e., Ethereum’s standard for non-fungible tokens (NFTs)).
Helping convey the significance of Dyverse’s second-place ranking, Etherscan tracks a total of 998 ERC-721 token contracts. The only dApp responsible for more transfers is the highly popular, heavily funded CryptoKitties, which has recorded 4,636 transfers over the past 24 hours (vs. 979 for Dyverse).
Enjin CEO Teases Upcoming Crypto Exchange Feature
Despite being busy working with South Korea- and China-headquartered VREX Lab to integrate the Dyverse marketplace dApp, there remains plenty down the short-term pipeline for the development of Enjin’s own product suite.
Indeed, early Thursday evening saw Maxim Blagov (CEO, Co-Founder & Creative Director) tweet that soon, users will be able to “use the Enjin Mobile Wallet to seamlessly exchange hundreds of trading pairs.” Included are Enjin’s very own Enjin Coin (ENJ), as well as ether (ETH), bitcoin (BTC), litecoin (LTC) and numerous ERC-20-compliant tokens.
The release of this exchange feature, according to Blagov’s tweet, will “all [be] thanks to the world’s first native, decentralized, in-app multi-exchange integration,” enabled by Kyber Network (KNC), Bancor (BNT) and Changelly.
