Minecraft prohibits in-game NFTs because it goes against guidelines
Mojang Studios, a Microsoft-controlled gaming company, has announced that it will ban NFTs along with blockchain products in its popular decades-old game “Minecraft”.
According to one report, the concept of NFTs reflects a model of content scarcity and deletion, which violates their community guidelines. The company wants to ensure a safe and inclusive experience by avoiding integration of Minecraft with blockchain-based products in the form of worlds, skins, character items or other mods.
Mojang Studios stated in the blog that NFTs associated with rarity and exclusion that players gain from activities are inconsistent with Minecraft’s values of creative inclusion and play together.
“To ensure that Minecraft players have a safe and inclusive experience, integration of blockchain technologies within client and server Minecraft applications is not permitted and may not be used to create NFTs associated with any in-game content…”
