The new JumpNet smart contracts by Enjin, provide developers a quick and affordable way to build the next hit blockchain game. JumpNet overcomes two obstacles by being an eco-friendly company and providing gas-free purchases. Developers have been using the Enjin platform as an alternative to Ethereum’s high gas fees. JumpNet smart contracts will enable developers who are looking to create the next Axie Infinity game to have the ability to mint their own coins — in addition to creating tokens and marketplaces.
Axie Infinity has taken the world by storm is an understatement! Axie Infinity is a complex game that you can play on Android or iPhone phones, and the PC. The core gameplay is similar to Pokémon. You control three creatures called Axies who each have their own skills. These Axies can be used against other players, or against computer-controlled opponents. To play, you’ll need three Axies that you purchase with Ethereum (ETH).
JumpNet is fast, gas-free, eco-friendly—Introducing Smart Contracts.
JumpNet is a Proof of Authority (PoA) blockchain that offers more or less instant and gasless, on-chain transactions. This means users can mint NFTs and trade them without the barrier of Ethereum’s high gas fees.
JumpNet smart contracts will enable economically-minded game and app developers who aspire to build the next complex game economies. Building a complex and successful game such as Axie Infinity would be possible as would launching their own ERC-20 tokens, creating robust marketplaces, and implementing unique minting abilities.
For users, games built on Jumpnet will relieve them from paying high gas fees on Ethereum. It allows the users to mint, and transfer NFT’s without any cost.

The world needs more Play to Earn Games.
At Enjin, our goal is to enable developers to build the virtual worlds of tomorrow. Games that offer players real value can change not only their lives but also the lives of those around them.
The concept of user-generated value—where people can own their content, monetize it autonomously, and share some of their earnings with the platforms that enable their trade—has captured the attention of countless developers and gamers across the world.
Next-generation Free markets powered by Smart Contracts.
What is the JumpNet Blockchain?
We publicly launched JumpNet two months ago with the aim of providing our partners a fast and free blockchain.
In our fast-paced world, we needed fast-paced infrastructure.
And affordable, too.
When Ethereum gas fees exploded due to the DeFi boom, apps that offered free non-fungible tokens (NFTs) were the first to grind to a halt. With the vast majority of our partners building freemium apps and free-to-play games, this affected most companies creating blockchain projects in our ecosystem.
At the time, Ethereum was generating 13 million tons of carbon per year, a number that has more than doubled in the last two months.
With growing concerns around the environmental impact of blockchain technology, JumpNet also enabled everyone to mint and transact NFTs on a network that produced less than 15 tons of carbon per year.
But we took this even a step further, making the JumpNet network carbon-negative.
JumpNet is fast, free, and eco-friendly—now it’s time to make it more flexible, too.
Bring on the Jumpnet smart contracts!
With JumpNet live, the Enjin Coin (ENJ) bridge audited and launched without a hitch, and the full ERC-1155 asset bridge around the corner, we’re expanding our plans for JumpNet.
The world wants smart contracts, and we believe it’s wise to listen.
JumpNet smart contracts will enable economically-minded game and app developers who aspire to build the next Axie Infinity to launch their own ERC-20 tokens, create robust marketplaces, and implement unique minting mechanics.
Deploying smart contracts and creating JumpNet-powered NFT projects will only require a small amount of ENJ to mint with.
In case you need to increase your transaction limits on JumpNet, you can hold a bit Efinity Token (EFI) in your wallet on JumpNet and continue executing transactions for free. For every 100 EFI that you hold on JumpNet (“JEFI”), your limits will be doubled. More information can be found in this guide.
Forest Knight Goes Play-to-Earn
We had the pleasure of welcoming Forest Knight as one of the earliest adopters in the Enjin ecosystem back in 2018, and we’re proud to have done our small part in helping it evolve into one of the best NFT games to date.
Their growing team now has its sights set on creating a next-generation economy that features user-generated value and play-to-earn opportunities—a vision we are thrilled to support.
When smart contracts come to JumpNet, Forest Knight will be one of the first teams to receive early access.
Expanding JumpNet – Ether Legends Comes to JumpNet
Long-time Enjin community members know that TCG Ether Legends features some of the most robust on-chain mechanics within the Enjin ecosystem.
The team has built a true play-to-earn game with currencies, staking, and NFT forging managed by smart contracts that are already live on Ethereum.
With the game reaching the later stages of development, the team is beginning to plan their go-to-market strategy and is expanding to JumpNet.
As an early adopter of JumpNet smart contracts, we look forward to helping Ether Legends fulfill its vision of building a new type of value-driven trading card game.
A New Gaming Paradigm
With innovative mechanics, incredible gameplay, and fast, affordable smart contract transactions, we are proud to work with some of the best in the business to push the games market toward a new paradigm.
We believe in a future where players who spend real time playing games are rewarded with real value that can positively impact their lives.
As Forest Knight, Ether Legends, and other developers continue to innovate and push NFT gaming toward the mass market, we look forward to seeing their progress—and we believe JumpNet will bring us all one step closer to our shared vision for the games industry.
