What other statements have been made? The company stressed that all players should have the same experience, and NFTs contradict this goal by contributing to the creation of scarcity and exclusivity. Furthermore, Minecraft believes that NFTs could cost players who buy them dearly, given the speculative prices and frequent cases of cheating.

As for NFTs already released by various companies not affiliated with Minecraft, the statement says that these projects are not in line with the game’s values.

Earlier, Minecraft developers urged to abandon speculation with digital assets. They said that gaming companies should not create projects that promote artificial scarcity of digital assets and speculation with NFTs.
