NFTs in Minecraft?

No.  Let me be clear that this is not the case.

 

Recently Mojang Studios has released their stance on NFTs regarding Minecraft.  First off, let's go over a few things to catch everyone up with a few simple explanations.  For further in-depth details on what everything is if you are interested you could take the time to dive into a few online searches to get fully caught up to speed on this.

 


What is an NFT?

 

NFT stands for non-fungible token.  You can think of it as a digital object that can't be made into anything else.  Even simpler terms to explain this, think of it as a digital collector's item.

 

What is a Blockchain?

 

A blockchain is a digital ledger that records information regarding the creation and sale of NFTs.


 

With these very basic and simple explanations that don't cover the full scope of the topic, but let's tackle Mojang Studio's Policy.

 

Overall, NFTs go against what has been presented to us in the Minecraft Usage Guidelines.  Blockchain technologies are not allowed to be integrated inside Mojang's client, server applications, or Minecraft in-game content such as worlds, skins, persona items, or other mods.  Since NFTs promote exclusivity and are not inclusive by nature this goes against the idea behind Minecraft as a game.  A game that is meant for everyone to enjoy and have the opportunity to enjoy.  

 

The final words and I'll quote Mojang Studios word for word on this below.


As such, 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.


 

Mojang Studios will be keeping an eye on how blockchain technologies develop in the future.  For now, they are not looking to add NFTs into Minecraft.
