Enjin, the leading ecosystem for non-fungible tokens (NFTs), announced a partnership with Square Enix to launch a digital collection of Final Fantasy VII 25th Anniversary cards and figures on Efinity, a scalable, decentralized, cross-chain network designed to bring NFTs to everyone. The digital collectibles will be accessible to consumers who purchase items in the physical collection, which is expected to launch in 2023.
Consumers can pre-order the commemorative action figure starting today at the Square Enix Store. The deluxe physical product will include a code that can be redeemed for a digital version of the figure using the Efinity network, a next-generation blockchain for NFTs, powered by Enjin. Pre-orders for the trading cards will go live later this year.
Enjin is providing an alternative destination for eco-conscious blockchain developers, investors, and users. Collectibles are supported by Enjin’s full product suite, which provides environmentally-friendly solutions for building decentralized gaming products. Enjin is committed to carbon-neutral NFTs by 2030 and is building the foundation of Efinity on the most carbon-efficient network, Polkadot. As a signatory of the Crypto Climate Accord, Enjin is striving for a decarbonized and sustainable cryptocurrency industry.
Witek Radomski, Enjin CTO, added “This partnership marks a coming-of-age phase for digital assets and entertainment; Square Enix, an esteemed developer with iconic intellectual property, is paving the way for the industry. By using Efinity, fans can experience interactive NFTs without even realizing they’re on the blockchain. Enjin can establish the next phase of growth in blockchain entertainment, merging curiosity and creativity.”
Square Enix utilizes the Efinity blockchain and the Enjin Open Platform toolkit to seamlessly integrate, manage and launch its digital collectible offering. The Efinity blockchain offers its users the benefits of efficiency, depth, and deployability. Enjin’s robust NFT tech stack enables the wholesale management of Square Enix collectibles on the eco-friendly Efinity blockchain network, using NFT.io and Enjin Wallet as the non-exclusive secondary marketplace and wallet solution for users, and Enjin Beam for its unique and accessible QR code NFT distribution system.
