Enjin (ENJ) is a platform that is focusing on blockchain development in the gaming sphere. NFTs, real-time in-game development, and a game platform where true ownership is paramount. There are already budding blockchain games like Upland & Axie that are enticing young people in developing countries to forego jobs in the physical world for tech-required digital grinding "careers" .

Coming from a past of early childhood gaming, I've tried some of these games to see if they might be fun enough to procure real world coin through gameplay. I found that these programs are set up in a sort of pyramid scheme not unlike the physical market. It takes small "investments"upfront to acquire land, weapons, etc that help you progress through the game until being able to find the rare drop that will actually produce a viable income. So for someone with time, money, and interest in tech/VR, it could be a lucrative move for sure.

Cue UN Global Compact. The Participants (of which Enjin became) must follow the UN's 10 Principles of corporate sustainability. And we all know through our study of word magick, that "corporate sustainability" does not refer to sustaining the environment in which it exists but the lifeless corps itself.

So for whatever good could have came out of nerds owning their own legendary drops, outfits, and property, it will now (and probably was always meant to) be utilized by the UN to most likely use the computing power of developing nations & rural populations (useless class) to run the servers of their global blockchain control grid.

I actually am working on a project with Enjin in the NFT/crypto space. Had no idea they were affiliated with the UN. That's a real bummer

Oh, no shit. That's crazy. Would love to hear more about the project. Assuming you can talk about it, I guess.

Ya I had started my crypto journey two years ago before this big bull and had jumped into Stellar right before finding an article possibly linking Stellar & human trafficking. Then their partnership with WEF happened and I was like "...well shit."

Real bummer, for sure. My spirit is torn between riding some evilass coat tails while trying to make some money, or slowly selling off and being happy with the gains made. The latter sounds very unappealing to a HODLr like me.

Is this related to the whole meta-verse thing that Zuckerberg et al are prepping the masses? A sort of Ready-Player-One virtual (free-range) prison
Although I've nothing against making money in the virtual world as long as its fair/not-a-scam

I'm fairly certain. My gut says free-range VR prison for sure. They already have the, ahem, adult themed VR angle in play which is creating a very...interesting and demanding niche.

I'm also invested in Decentraland which was backed by Atari earlier this year. They are a decentralized VR city where you use native currency MANA to purchase LAND in the city. The land you can then do whatever you'd like with. Atari came in with the intent of paving the path for blockchain casinos and retro arcades/VR museums. Wild stuff and very enticing, but it also looks like a parapolitical fruit ripe for the picking to Great Reset investors.

The land scarce model is being phased out quick tho. From my experiences, free land with pay to grow model looks like the future. Take a peak at nifty island - a metaverse world from nifty gatewey. As for virtual prison, look no further than Axie and yield guild and these play to earn models. Yield guild in particular is a group that leases their digital assets to people in 3rd world countries so they can make a better living than what their physical environment has to offer. These things will turn into prisons of necessity for these people. Their 9-5 will be hooking into the metaverse.

Very insightful. Thanks for that. Ya the Open Money Initiative got me thinking about their plans for third-world server hosts and forcing that as one of the only economically viable business structures.
