Available on Codashop in the U.S.: Genshin Impact Genesis Crystals and the Blessing of the Welkin Moon
Currently available in over 60 territories, Codashop is the trusted source of digital content and in-game currencies for millions of users worldwide. Thanks to official partnerships between Coda and leading game publishers, Codashop offers a new way for players in the U.S. to safely purchase in-game credits and upgrades for themselves, or even send them as gifts to friends and family.

In June, Coda, in partnership with HoYoverse, announced that Genshin Impact Genesis Crystals and the Blessing of the Welkin Moon are available for purchase on Codashop in the United States. Players of the popular open-world action RPG can now enjoy more flexibility when securely purchasing in-game items on the Codashop marketplace.

The cross-platform blockbuster hit Genshin Impact launched in September 2020 as a free-to-play open-world action RPG. The title has inspired a vibrant community of players, cosplayers and fan artists around the world and was ranked by IGN as the most talked-about game on Twitter in the first quarter of 2022. Together, Coda and HoYoverse are excited to provide players with a more convenient way for purchasing Genesis Crystals and the Blessing of the Welkin Moon on Codashop, with support for their preferred payment methods, including Venmo.
