Thanks to developers at crypto-gaming project NFT Worlds, Minecraft, the immensely popular sandbox-style game acquired by Microsoft in 2014, has received a Web3 update. It’s a project based on third-party Minecraft servers with a Polygon-based overlay, and it’s built on the Ethereum sidechain, which provides users minimal gas fees. The layer intends to provide a metaverse-like experience for the 141 million users that play Minecraft on a monthly basis on average. Read also: Apple AirTags are being misused to stalk people
Players will be able to access Web3 services such as an online shop where they can buy stuff for their Minecraft experience using the WRLD token thanks to the NFT Worlds blockchain layer on Minecraft. It also changes the game into a Decentraland-like environment.
Users can buy lands using cryptocurrencies, and because it employs Polygon, a cost-effective and speedy layer-two solution for the Ethereum blockchain, gas expenses are cheap. Individual non-fungible tokens (NFTs) act as lots in NFT Worlds.
Some of Minecraft’s software is open-source, meaning that anyone with the necessary technical skills can improve it. Minecraft does not have a well-established economy like Roblox, which has a thriving virtual marketplace and its own digital money known as Robux. The NFT Worlds layer in the game allows players a metaverse experience, which is exciting news for Minecraft and NFTs lovers.
We didn’t want to have to’reinvent the wheel’ by developing an unproven game from the ground up, while also having to innovate on the NFT integration and decentralized metaverse side of the platform. The project’s documentation claims that “delivering on this would take far too long.”
Despite giving out 10,000 worlds for free and claiming to solely make money from “royalties and secondary sales,” NFT Worlds has already made $90 million (approximately Rs. 680 crore) in trade. NFT Worlds claims that around 100 additional NFT projects, including MetaCollar, Neckville, and Creepy Creams DAO, are using its NFTs to create worlds in Minecraft.
