Recommended by the Enjin project, the ERC-1155 standard was founded in 2009 for swapping in-game items of different games on the Ethereum network and consists of more than 20 million users. It raised $18.9 million in its ICO, following which Enjin developed an array of innovative blockchain products and services. Enjin’s efforts have simplified creating, managing, storing and distributing blockchain assets for endless use cases.
A major benefit of ERC-1155
One of the primary factors that distinguish ERC-1155 token from others is that once a developer integrates an ERC-1155 asset in any app or game, the effort required to integrate another one is very less. The Gaming Multiverse by Enjin Coin (which has some of the best blockchain games) uses this process extensively.
How does ERC-1155 Work?
The core idea behind the ERC-1155 provided by Enjin states that a single smart contract should have the ability to produce and manage an infinite number of tokens simultaneously. The smart contract representing the game items is a special token contract.
The ERC-1155 significantly reduces fees on the Ethereum blockchain, which was a major problem for users. It does so by allowing batch transfers and lowering the amount of duplicate ERC-20 and ERC-721 codes on the Ethereum blockchain.
Its widespread adoption is ensured by the future proof design as it exempts developers from the trouble of switching to another token standard in the future.
The ERC 20 Adapter
Since ERC-1155 is backward-compatible with ERC-721, developers can make ERC-1155 act like any ERC-20 or ERC-721 tokens simply by adding adapters. This possibility increases the scope of the highly developed token standard that is accessible and manageable by any Ethereum wallet, exchanges, dapps, etc.
The ERC-1155 standard is immune to future changes and is the final token standard for digital assets on the Ethereum blockchain.
