Blockchain technology and NFT unwelcome in or around Minecraft, developer Mojang said on Wednesday, in a statement outlining the developer’s stance on how users can and (mostly) cannot use their games. Mojang cited many concerns regarding NFT and its use Minecraft to create and distribute them, including security issues, fraud, and setting precedents for yes and no Minecraft lucky owner.
On the official Minecraft website, Mojang mentions that players and creators are “actively involved in buying, selling, or trading NFT using Minecraft (like skin or world)” to explain his stance on blockchain and NFT in his game. The developer’s message is clear: “[B]Keychain technologies are not allowed to be integrated inside our client and server applications, nor Minecraft In-game content such as worlds, skins, personality items, or other mods, is used by blockchain technology to create a scarce digital asset. “
The developer pointed out that some third-party companies are trying to use Minecraft as the basis for creating and distributing NFTs, either through direct purchases or by earning them, in or out of the game. That’s not the beginning for Mojang, which says third-party NFTs “can be unreliable and could cost players buying them.” The developer cited fraudulent sales and artificially inflated prices of digital goods and said that the rarity or exclusivity in Minecraft goes against its inclusive philosophy.
Mojang emphasizes his stance on blockchain and NFT in Minecraft with the following instructions:
[To] ensure that Minecraft players have a safe and inclusive experience, blockchain technology is not allowed to be integrated inside our Minecraft server and client applications, nor should they be used to create NFTs associated with any in-game content, including worlds, transactions skins, personality items or other mods. We will also pay close attention to how blockchain technology evolves over time to ensure that the above principles are upheld and to determine if it allows for a more secure experience or practical and holistic applications. other in the game or not. However, we have no plans to implement blockchain technology into Minecraft right now.
Interestingly, Twitter users’ immediate, strong reaction to Mojang’s stance on NFT terrible. Users who have not carefully read the company’s statement expressed concern that the official Minecraft The NFTs arrived, and when they released their full statement, they publicly breathed a sigh of relief that at least for now, Mojang has no such plans.
