What’s new? An independent group of game developers, artists, and employees at Mojang Studios, which works on Minecraft, believes that game companies should not create projects that promote artificial scarcity of digital assets and speculation with NFTs. The group’s initiative seeks to sign commitments that game developers are fully informed about the risks and downsides of NFTs and cryptocurrencies before their implementation into the game mechanics.

What other statements have been made? According to Minecraft developers, in the current environment, only the first or richest buyers of cryptocurrencies and NFTs are profitable. In this, the companies do not think about the players and strive to make as much money as possible.

Signing a commitment document is meant to change this situation. Companies that agree to sign the document will commit to not create games that promote artificial scarcity of crypto assets and speculation with NFTs. In addition, the companies pledge not to use energy-intensive and volatile cryptocurrencies, as well as not to provide disproportionate benefits to first users and wealthy players.
