Tweet of the week

Maxim from Enjin shared a meme from Toy Story. So why tweet of the week?

Enjin used to be all about Ethereum, that was before choosing Polkadot for its efinity solution. Given the fact that in crypto, we find the same level of passion with European football fans, some find the whole “ethexit” process disturbing.

This is business and emotions don’t fit, Enjin saw the opportunity with Polkadot and they grabbed it, after all, these people contributed the maximum to the Ethereum ecosystem.

Ethereum desperately needs to fix the transaction fees issue, they say July, I say look at BSC, then again, when sharding?

Ethereum will always be Ethereum, think of it as the “mainnet”, now Enjin evolves to connect nfts from all networks.
