What is Efinity?
The cross-chain NFT highway, Efinity is a parachain built on the Polkadot ecosystem. It enables designers, game developers, artists, and others to supercharge their projects or apps on Efinity at a low cost while being completely scalable.
Version: v3.0.0 - Released!
Two newly implemented core features will be extremely important for Efinity to be featured as the top NFT blockchain.
Said updates are outlined below:
What is NFT.io?
NFT.io is the next marketplace for all NFTs, with an awesome branded domain. NFT.io includes all of the basic functionalities found in any NFT-related marketplace, as well as the ability to work with Efinity in the future. It not only has great features, but it also has an easy and friendly user interface and user experience.
The NFT.io development team is working tirelessly in adding many features to the first release of NFT.io. The following are the current development features:
What is the Enjin Wallet?
The Enjin Wallet application (available for Android and iOS) is the next-generation crypto and NFT mobile app that enables you to store, send and melt your NFTs, in addition to using the Enjin Wallet as any portfolio application.
The Enjin Wallet 2.0 Beta (a.k.a. wallet v2) is still on 2.0.10 beta (currently available for Android devices) as of the date when this blog post goes live. Our development team currently working on a few integration fixes for the following features in order to make sure the experience is smooth and bug-free once it's released:

This section is broken down into 3 categories:
What is the Open Platform?
Open Platform is a package that enables developers to implement blockchain integration more quickly. With it, game developers can perform blockchain actions without having to worry about encoding or signing transactions, or understanding specific blockchain technical details.

Other developer-specific features have also been added, such as:
➡️ Up next: Quality of Life improvements and updates to maintain the Open Platform in sync with the Efinity updates.
What is an SDK?A Software Development Kit (SDK) is a set of software tools and programs provided by hardware and software vendors that developers and game devs can use to build applications for specific platforms. Enjin makes our SDKs available for developers to easily integrate into their apps and games.
As for the Enjin Platform V.2 SDKs, our SDK team is adding the Melt feature as part of the Unreal Engine SDK sample project.
The Unreal Engine SDK sample project demonstrates how it’s possible to integrate your game/project into a visual interface created by the Enjin team.
