Enjin releases Minecraft plugin to enable blockchain integration28th May 2020
The Minecraft plugin – called EnjinCraft – will enable users of more than 200,000 servers to integrate blockchain assets.
The news arrives shortly after the beloved game’s 11th anniversary and it is available for owners of the Java edition.
Players can simply drop EnjinCraft into their server’s ‘plugin’ folder to begin integrating and distributing the tokens.
As each asset is blockchain-based, users will be able to implement real-world economies of value into their servers.
They will have tangible, permanent ownership over the in-game items and currencies.
Likewise, the plugin will enable them to trade them through the peer-to-peer Minecraft servers alongside the Enjin Marketplace.
Co-founder and CTO, Witek Radomski, has said:
“EnjinCraft is the beginning of a new era for sandbox games. Players now have a tangible stake in their gaming worlds, and server owners can create new kinds of addictive experiences by using branded collectibles and items with scarcity and value in the digital universe.”
This marks the second time the company has released a plugin for Minecraft.
The first one – DonationCraft – went on to become one of the game’s most popular plugins, after having been downloaded 5.1 million times.
To coincide with this release, Enjjn is also launching its open-source Software Development Kit (SDK) for Java.
This powerful toolkit underpins the Minecraft plugin and it will now be readily available to Java developers.
This will empower them to integrate blockchain technology into any Java-based mobile, desktop or web app.
