According to Kertonegoro, the rules for Minecraft on the NFT are about protecting players from negative experiences, and several servers have violated these rules. However, the executive highlighted that within their own servers, they are able to offer NFTs without violating the game guidelines. They do this by offering no pay-to-win NFTs and making their best NFTs free to earn. He explained that:

“We wanted to show Mojang that it can be done in a way that benefits them and benefits their player base and benefits the gaming industry as a whole. It’s obviously you don’t know, it’s people in your server. Not the fastest way to jump. […] But we knew this was the right way to do it.”

Tan also addressed the topic and noted that Enjin supports MyMetaverse’s effort to negotiate with Mojang Studios because the firm’s NFT-integrated Minecraft server has been around for almost four years before Minecraft banned NFTs.

The executive also pointed out that China, a country that is against cryptocurrencies, has also expressed its interest in supporting NFTs. “If it works for the Chinese government, why not Minecraft,” he noted.

In addition to Minecraft, the NFT created by MyMetaverse also has an interoperability aspect and can be used in other games such as the firm’s Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTAV) servers and its own massively multiplayer online (MMO) game, Infinity Realm . Courtonegoro explained that:

“These different games, read the wallet of the user, see that they own the NFT and give them different benefits in the game. […] In Minecraft, this NFT is a sword. In GTA the NFT is a car and in Infinity Realms, the NFT is a house.”

In addition, Tan also expressed his strong belief that having NFTs that work across different games is an important cornerstone for the development of the Metaverse. They said that:

“Interoperability creates a bigger community. It forms the foundation for what we now call the metaverse, which we’ve been trying to build since 2018.”

As NFTs run on Affinity, Kertongoro, a Polkadot parachain developed by Enjin, also highlighted that their NFTs will have a good impact on Polkadot’s wider ecosystem: “The ecosystem can only grow through adoptive innovations. Is. And that’s exactly what we’re doing.”
