At Enjin, our goal is to provide developers the tools they need to build their dream blockchain project—no blockchain coding experience required.
Go! by Health Hero is one of these projects, using non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to pioneer health and wellness rewards.
In this Ecosystem Update, Enjin COO Caleb Applegate and CTO Witek Radomski were joined by Health Hero CEO Anthony Diaz to discuss how developers and businesses can leverage our tech to enhance and gamify their projects.
Health Hero is a modern virtual healthcare provider on a mission, incorporating games, blockchain, and AI with digital consumer experiences to promote ultimate health for everyone.
Its latest initiative, Go! by Health Hero, allows users to create their own personalized NFTs based on their health and fitness activity. By connecting accounts like Google Fit, Apple Health, and FitBit, users can earn unique "Go!Bots" and evolve their tokens as they progress on their wellness journey.
Using Enjin's robust blockchain tools, Health Hero has built a ground-up, interactive health app—a brilliant mechanism to modernize and bring blockchain adoption to the health and fitness industry.
"We think that these technologies are really important. Instead of after-effect adding them to a modern health plan, it's better to start with them at the foundation."
— Anthony Diaz, CEO of Health Hero
The Enjin Platform and its accompanying API and SDKs are built to simplify blockchain integration, so our adopters and partners can focus on creating exciting, immersive experiences for their users.
To make integration more efficient and seamless, we recently updated the Enjin API, which is used to communicate with our backend cloud and enables our adopters to integrate into their respective projects.
These upgrades include cleaner and more intuitive queries and mutations, which will also set the stage for future development going into our Efinity NFT parachain and other updates to our SDKs.
Alongside the v2 schemas for GraphQL, we've also launched new open-source SDKs for C#, C++, and Java in Alpha, all of which use these new mutations.
We'll eventually let developers host SDKs on their own servers, but for now, our SDKs can be used by any project building with Unreal Engine, Unity, or any other app that uses these coding languages.
"We want the developer experience to be seamless, regardless of what blockchain you're using."
— Witek Radomski, Enjin CTO
Our multi-chain ecosystem is currently comprised of Ethereum Mainnet and JumpNet, a gas-free blockchain. In the future, this ecosystem will be bolstered by Efinity, our Polkadot parachain purpose-built for NFTs.
We'll be announcing our parachain auction plans in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.
On Efinity, the developer experience will be seamless, allowing you to focus on your specific use case. You can continue using essentially the same code, and your tokens will function the same way they always did.
As the world moves toward a multi-chain future, Efinity is built to make it all consistent to work with, so you won't have to deal with the intricacies of each unique blockchain network.
A robust, decentralized network, Efinity will also be expanded to be available not only on the cloud, but also hostable on local infrastructure and servers.
Health Hero is among one of our many adopters and partners with plans to take advantage of Efinity for their NFTs!
"We're really excited about Efinity. It's going to take all that extra thinking that developers and product teams need to do off the table and allow creators to get to the core of what they do and go to market faster."
— Anthony Diaz, CEO of Health Hero
As always, we enjoy actively engaging with our community and sharing our progress with you. Stay tuned for the next video where we'll provide updates on the Paratoken Standard we're building for Polkadot!
