Chiliz and Enjin announced a partnership on Feb 6, to collaborate on creation of branded digital collectibles (otherwise known as Non Fungible Tokens) for the sports and entertainment history. The Chiliz project will reportedly use the Enjin blockchain platform to mint Ethereum-based collectibles (on ERC-1155 standard) for its associates and partners, on their fan engagement and rewards application Socios. Backed by Enjin Coin (ENJ), these collectible assets will be tradeable on the Enjin Marketplace and purchasable with both Enjin Coin (ENJ) and Chiliz (CHZ). This comes at a time, when the Non Fungible Tokens (NFTs) market segment is fast gaining recognition and this partnership will play its part, to take it to the next level.
