While the enthusiasm for using NFT in games seems to have waned, there are still companies like Square Enix that are still trying to use it. and emphasize reliance on this technology. However, it appears that Mojang is not one of those companies and has no interest in NFT.
In a lengthy statement posted on the Minecraft game site, the team detailed Kamel addresses this issue and explains why he has not embraced the technology to date and why he has taken steps to ban any implementation of anything related to blockchain in Minecraft.
The statement reads. : In the Minecraft User Guide, we briefly explain how the server owner can pay for access and that all players should have access to the same functionality. We have these rules to ensure that Minecraft remains a community where everyone has access to the same content. However, Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) can create models of scarcity and exclusion that conflict with our guidelines and the spirit of Minecraft. To ensure that Minecraft players have a safe and inclusive experience, blockchain technologies are not permitted to be integrated into our applications and servers, nor can blockchain technology be used to create rare digital assets for Minecraft in-game content such as worlds, skins, character items, or other modes used."
In the continuation of the statement, Moyang Studio stated: "Recently, some companies have issued tokens They have launched and implemented an irreplaceable that is related to the world of Minecraft and its special skins. Other examples of how NFTs and blockchain can be used with Minecraft assets include the creation of non-tradeable collectible Minecraft tokens that allow players to earn NFTs through activities on the server or receive NFT rewards for activities outside of the game. Each of these uses of NFT and other blockchain technologies creates digital ownership based on scarcity and exclusion, which is inconsistent with the creative values of Minecraft and the idea of playing together. NFT does not include all of our fan community and creates a gap between them. The pricing thinking and investment mentality around NFTs shifts the focus from gaming to profit-making, which we believe is inconsistent with the long-term enjoyment and success of our players.
They added: We are also concerned that some tokens Third-party non-tradeables may not be reliable and may end up being very damaging to players who purchase them. Some third-party NFT implementations are also completely dependent on blockchain technology and may require an asset manager that may disappear without notice. There have also been cases where non-exchangeable tokens have been sold at artificially inflated or fraudulent prices. We know that creating in our game has intrinsic value, so we strive to provide a market where those values can be recognized."
At the end and to emphasize the previous words of this statement, they announced "Thus, to ensure that Minecraft players have a safe and inclusive experience, blockchain technologies are not permitted to be integrated and implemented into Minecraft client and server applications, nor can they be used to create non-exchangeable tokens associated with any content within The game used worlds and skins, character items or other modes. We will also pay more attention to how this technology evolves over time to ensure that the above principles are maintained and to determine whether these principles allow for safe experiences or other practical and inclusive applications in games. . However, we currently have no plans to implement blockchain-based technologies in the Minecraft game.
Although the final paragraph of the statement mentions that things may change in the future, what is currently What we can say for sure is that Moyang Studio is against implementing NFT in its popular game and has no plans for it.
