Enjin Rolls Out Minecraft Plugin, EnjinCraft, to Drop Blockchain Assets into the Game

Enjin's ERC1155 token standard allows for a greater level of agnosticism

One of the most popular video games in the world, Minecraft, now has a plugin that lets its players spawn blockchain assets.

The plugin is called EnjinCraft, and has been built by Enjin, a well-known gaming startup. EnjinCraft is open-source and allows players to place blockchain assets in the Java Edition of Minecraft without the need for any code.

When it comes to how the tool works, users put the file ‘EnjinCraft' into the players server folder for plugins, where the integration and distribution of blockchain assets as tokens can begin.

It’s Not the First Minecraft Plugin by Enjin

EnjinCraft is the second Enjin release for Minecraft. The first Minecraft plugin by Enjin was released in 2013 after a collaboration with Bukkit. It’s called DonationCraft and has reached 5.1 million downloads, as it allows Minecraft players to grow their servers through the creation of a donation store and server website.

With this new offering, server hosts can create localized Minecraft economies. Providing players with tangible ownership over currencies and in-game items. Furthermore, they can securely trade assets in the peer-to-peer (P2P) manner on the server, via chat rooms or in the Enjin Marketplace, which is a digital trading platform.

Enjin Also Released a Java SDK

Enjin has also released a Java open-source development kit (SDK) that allows developers the ability to implement the blockchain into Java-based web, mobile or desktop apps. Here’s what the company’s CTO and co-founder, Witek Radomski, had to say about what’s happening at Enjin at the moment:

“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.”

Expansion into Asia

Back in February, Enjin introduced its development platform on Ethereum to allow developers the integration of their crypto assets into apps and games without any blockchain coding.

The startups gaming project became active this year. In April this year, Enjin said it’s going to open its crypto wallet in China, as it wants to expand into Asia and already asked for the China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology’s approval to do so.
