Mojang Studios has put forward its stance on NFTs and their place in Minecraft, and it's a positive one for the swath of gamers who are vocal about their disdain for the technology. In short, Mojang has said that NFTs in Minecraft are "generally not something we will support or allow".

The developer says that the use of NFTs is not permitted across pretty much all aspects of Minecraft; within the game's client/servers, for use as in-game content, as mods, all the rest of it. Basically, the team doesn't accept NFTs and won't be integrating them into Minecraft.

Mojang says that fundamentally, NFTs and what they currently represent "does not align with Minecraft values of creative inclusion and playing together", and therefore the company doesn't see a reason for them to work with Minecraft.

This all sets a pretty good precedent in general, and we hope Xbox adopts this same stance with the rest of its first-party lineup. Phil Spencer has gone on record recently to say that he doesn't see the value for players in NFTs at present.

However, Mojang isn't ruling out the technology forever. The developer says that it'll be keeping an eye on the tech and how it evolves, to see if an adapted version of it could ever have a place in Minecraft.

"We will also be paying close attention to how blockchain technology evolves over time to ensure that the above principles are withheld and determine whether it will allow for more secure experiences or other practical and inclusive applications in gaming. However, we have no plans of implementing blockchain technology into Minecraft right now."
