June 20, Mojang, owned by Microsoft announcement this NFT and block chain technology would no longer be allowed to “integrate” Minecraft. It was bad news for NFT Worldswho spent months building an entire crypto-economy in addition to a collection of random seeds needed to make specific Minecraft Plans.
Now the team behind NFT Worlds announcement this will create a new game “based on many basic mechanics of Minecraft” but which will be “completely independent of the application of the policy Microsoft and Mojang have more Minecraft.” NFT Worlds promises its new Minecraftstyle game will be built “from scratch” to be familiar to Minecraft players, but now with “the modernization and active development Minecraft has been missing for years.
Don’t worry, everything will be fine
NFT Worlds will always be free to play, according to the team, and users won’t need a credit card to purchase additional content. This content will likely be purchased with the NFT Worlds token instead, which the value has fallen by more than 60% in one week following Mojang’s announcement.
For now, players who own an NFT world issued by NFT Worlds can still use his random seed to play in Minecraft or even host multiplayer sessions on this map, as a spokesperson for Microsoft confirmed to Vice. But that doesn’t mean much, since the NFT itself never provided exclusive rights to this map, any more than writing “World 1-1” on a piece of paper provides the ownership rights. on the iconic Super Mario Bros. level.
Under Microsoft’s new rules, however, the NFT Worlds blockchain will no longer be able to connect to Minecraftthe API of. This means that players can no longer easily do in-game crypto payments denominated in NFT Worlds $WRLD token, as well as take advantage of other features coded using the NFT Worlds API.
The NFT Worlds team said they would prioritize “backward compatibility with Minecraft plugins and server development practices” in its next clone. This means that creators must “continue to create NFT Worlds content” in addition to Minecraftsays the team, confident that it will work with the renamed NFT Worlds game every time it launches.
Thanks to Mojang’s new EULA, however, any further development related to NFT Worlds in Minecraft cannot imply any “blockchain-based functionality, NFT support, or in-game currency” at this time. And since these are the core features that have defined NFT Worlds’ value as an add-on, it’s unclear exactly what the developers of NFT Worlds will do until their new Minecraft alternative is available.
You can’t fire us, we quit
NFT Worlds characterizes this new split as “a web2 vs. web3 battle … between two different visions of the future of the web” and “a technological struggle over who will own the digital assets”. The team casts itself as the protectors of “the spirit of innovation through independent creators” while portraying Microsoft as a profit-obsessed behemoth that “will always act in the interests of its shareholders and its balance sheet, at the detriment to innovation, the experience of players and creators.
On the contrary, Mojang quarreled last week that projects like NFT Worlds create “digital property systems based on scarcity and exclusion, which is inconsistent with Minecraft values of creative inclusion and playing together. The rules it has in place prohibiting NFTs are intended to “ensure that Minecraft remains a community where everyone has access to the same content,” the company wrote.
