NFTs and other cryptocurrencies are a subject that causes curiosity and interest to some, but to others it mainly causes distrust. And if, on the one hand, there are companies that have welcomed these technologies with open arms, there are others that vehemently refuse to use them.

And this is the case for Mojang Studios, as the company that created the popular Minecraft game has banned the use of NFTs and Blockchain on its platform.




A lot of ink has been written about NFTs, or Non-Fungible Tokens, and people are starting to get more and more enlightened about this and other topics related to cryptocurrencies and digital sales. Several companies and products have already adopted these novelties, such as Hyundai, the game Habbo Hotel, SEGA, Instagram, Polium One, which is the first console in the world aimed at NFTs and Blockchain, among many others.

However, on the other hand, there are brands and personalities that do not look favorably on these technologies and warn of their disadvantages. For example, Bill Gates recently claimed that NFTs were "100% based on the dumbest theory".

Minecraft doesn't want NFTs or Blockchain in its game

Unlike other video game developers, Majong Studios refuses to have NFTs and Blockchain in Minecraft. In this way, the company does not want to have anything to do with these technologies and insisted on make that decision very clear on the game's official website.

According to information, one of the reasons behind this decision is the fact that the creator wants to offer a fair gaming experience for all players. That is, by not including NFTs and Blockchain, players do not lose access to exclusive items.

On the other hand, NFTs are still not that reliable, and according to recent data, sales of this technology have dropped from 12.6 billion to 1 billion dollars in just six months.

NFT is a kind of digital certificate, established via blockchain. This title defines originality and exclusivity to digital goods. Acronym for "Non-fungible Token" ("Non-fungible Token", in free translation), the NFTs have drawn attention after being paid millions of sums to acquire this type of asset on the Internet.
