How to download the Enjin Wallet?
Security is the biggest concern for wallets as hackers are known to attack various wallets and attempt to steal funds. Enjinwallet offers the best in class security for mobile wallets.
- Two-layer encryption: Hardware AES and software encryption is employed on the lower and application layer respectively
- Secure keyboard: The protected keyboard bars keyloggers and/or data sniffers from tapping into your mobile device to steal data. It can also be randomized to increase security.
- Custom libraries: Enjin Wallet features custom libraries that remove the private keys from the device memory after use – significantly reducing the attack service.
- Protection processor flaws: special code is put in place to deal with flaws in ARM processors.
- Security Audited: ORU security team found no issues that could be used to compromise the wallet or the cryptographic keys stored in the system (full security report here)
- Samsung Blockchain Keystore support: Enjin supports the Samsung Blockchain Keystore for private key protection under Samsung’s military grade security Knox.
Mobile wallets are classified as a “Hot Wallet” – meaning this wallet is connected to the internet. The Enjin team has devised special counter-measures to deal with hackers attempting to steal cryptocurrencies. All private keys are double encrypted the private keys, so even if hackers stole the file it cannot be decrypted. On top of this, the special designed Enjin keyboard deals with keyloggers – making sure that the on-device decryption process is safe. Lastly Enjin used custom libraries to wipe the private key from device memory once the transaction is sent – unlike other mobile wallets.
We added many security features that regular wallets don’t have. Enjin Wallet cannot be Keylogged and not affected by CPU flaws like Meltdown and Specture.Witek Radomski (during an Interview with Michael)
Hot wallets are generally considered less safe due to possible device based vulnerabilities (CPU or Memory flaws) which could compromise the security of the mobile phone. That being said, Enjin wallet’s can be considered to be the best out of all mobile wallets. For large amounts of cryptocurrency storage, we recommend the use of cold wallets like the Ledger Nano X.
We found the security of Enjin Wallet to be the best among mobile wallets, with external security audits confirming our viewpoint. We give it the highest security rating of 4/5 – the highest possible rating for “hot wallets“.
QR Airdrops (Enjin Beam)
The best Enjin Wallet feature is the Enjin Beam – aka – QR Giveaway. Giveaways can be claimed on the Enjin Wallet via the “Scan QR” feature. These giveaways could be found on various websites, games, and promotions on the Boxmining Channel.
Coins supported by the Enjin Wallet
The Enjin wallet supports the storage of Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Binance Chain, Litecoin, & Ethereum-based tokens. For Ethereum-based tokens, Enjin supports those created using the ERC20, or ERC1155 standards.
Did you know that Enjin introduced the ERC1155 token standard? Learn more with our ERC1155 token explainer.
These ERC1155 tokens fit into the Enjin ecosystem as these tokens can represent in-game assets. This fits perfectly into Enjin’s game development ecosystem for blockchain-based games.
Multi-currency Support: 4/5
Collective Non-Fungible Token (NFT) support
Among the supported Ethereum-based tokens are NFTs. You can receive, send or melt these NFTs using the Enjin wallet. The NFTs can be collectable items or in-game assets.
I frequently have giveaways of these Boxmining collectable items as a way to say “Thank you!!” to our fans.

Bring NFTs to Video Games
One of the key features unique to the Enjin Wallet is the ability to bind the wallet to various video games. This feature directly allows players to bring their NFT assets into different video games. This allows players to truly own digital assets – the items are not stored centrally on databases but on the ethereum blockchain instead.
Enjin wallet includes one of the best Decentralized App Browser we’ve ever seen. The clean UI interface displaces the various Exchanges, Financial, Games and Social Media Services.
Import from other wallets
The Enjin wallet allows coins to be imported from other cryptocurrency wallets. Examples of cryptocurrency wallets are: Bread, Eidoo, Exodus, Coinomi, MetaMask, Trezor Model T, Ledger Nano S, Ledger Nano X and Jaxx.
Interestingly, the wallet uses an extremely interactive and secure user interface. This eliminates the confusion of copying and pasting addresses.
Screenshot Blocking and Random Access Memory (RAM) Encryption
To improve Enjin wallet’s security, the wallet’s operating system level restricts screenshots and video recording. On the memory level, transactions are conducted on a secure RAM.
With the Enjin wallet, you can install it on any supported mobile device. You can restore your digital wealth using the 12-word recovery phrase.

I personally store small amounts of crypto on the Enjin Wallet so I can trade, or pay or receive crypto on the go. It has an easy to understand interface with a wide range of supported coins. So I have no hesitation to use it as my primary wallet.
I have friends new to crypto who were completely overwhelmed when hearing other people talk about hardware wallets, exchanges and crazy hacks. I showed them my Enjin Wallet and it only took them 30 minutes to master. Now they are actively trading casually.
We also found the security of Enjin Wallet to be the best among mobile wallets, with external security audits confirming our viewpoint.
Security Rating: 4/5
