Minecraft, one of the most played online games in the game world, has decided to take a very hard stance towards new technologies. NFT and Blockchain technology will no longer be available to the company’s clients.
Microsoft -owned Mojang prohibits the use of blockchain technology and NFT in the Minecraft client and any server . This is a tough stance against innovations that have occupied the technology agenda in recent years. In a blog post , the company stated that the use of NFTs violates the game’s guidelines . “ We have these rules in place to ensure Minecraft remains a community where everyone can access the same content ,” the company wrote.
Therefore, not only is the blockchain token application banned, but also any other Minecraft NFTs used.
Mojang also expressed concerns about the reliability of third-party NFTs and the risks to players who purchase them . One of these risks is fraud .

“ Know that creation in our game has intrinsic value and we strive to provide a market where these values can be recognized ,” the company continued in its statement . Mojang and parent company Microsoft currently allow players to sell in-game builds through the Minecraft Marketplace . As of 2021, mod developers have earned a total of $350 million through the centralized system .
“ We will also keep a close eye on how technology evolves over time to ensure that the above principles remain true and provide a safer gaming experience,” the developer said. ” said. Perhaps over time, NFT and Blockchain technologies will become secure so that players can easily benefit from these innovations.
