Leading blockchain gaming ecosystem Enjin has just released Enjincraft, an open-source plug-in for Minecraft that allows server owners and players to integrate Ethereum-based blockchain assets directly into their Minecraft servers.
According to Enjin,
“Your server will actually be able to deliver blockchain assets directly to players. They can jump onto your server. They can link their blockchain wallet, their Enjin wallet, to your server. And then when they start doing things in the game you can start issuing console commands that send blockchain assets to them.”
The plug-in provides a rich set of features allowing gamers to integrate, use and trade items, track blockchain-based Minecraft assets, link blockchain wallets and display real-time Enjin Coin and Ethereum balances.
Minecraft’s rise in the gaming world since its inception 11 years ago is unprecedented. Acquired by Microsoft for $2.5 billion in 2014, Minecraft has now topped 200 million sales and 126 million monthly plays.
The global pandemic also boosted Minecraft’s monthly player count by 25% in April and triggered a 40% spike in multiplayer sessions.
