The Enjin Coin is being designed to be the most usable cryptocurrency and smart contract enabled platform in the gaming industry. The company also plans to offer a suite of software development kits (SDKs) that developers can integrate into their decentralized games. It is one of the first projects testing the Raiden Network, Ethereum’s version of the Lightning Network.
Loom is building a gaming focused development platform for Ethereum-based applications. The Loom Network enables applications with smart contracts to access computing power that can be used for purposes that do not require a high degree of security. Loom is primarily focused on large scale games.
Loom will allow developers to create side chains called DAppChains that will operate in parallel to Ethereum smart contracts and will have their own consensus mechanisms. The Loom Network is powered by the LOOM token.
