While plenty of developers and publishers seem to have a big interest in blockchain tech and NFTs, the majority of gamers want nothing to do with them, and they certainly want that content kept as far away from games as possible. We’ve seen a handful of publishers come out recently to share there interest in blockchain tech, but thankfully, Mojang is not one of them.
In a lengthy statement on the Minecraft website, Mojang has said that they have no plans to implement blockchain tech into Minecraft. You can see the pertinent piece of the developer’s message below.
…to ensure that Minecraft players have a safe and inclusive experience, blockchain technologies are not permitted to be integrated inside our Minecraft client and server applications nor may they be utilized to create NFTs associated with any in-game content, including worlds, skins, persona items, or other mods. We will also be paying close attention to how blockchain technology evolves over time to ensure that the above principles are withheld and determine whether it will allow for more secure experiences or other practical and inclusive applications in gaming. However, we have no plans of implementing blockchain technology into Minecraft right now.
Again, this is just one part of a sizable message from Mojang on the topic. You can read the full message here.
