Now large game studios have become active supporters of cryptocurrencies, as they provide good prospects for financial gain.
At the same time, developers are seriously concerned about the risk of fraud with cryptocurrency and possible harm to the environment.
For this reason, a group of developers, artists and other employees at Minecraft creator Mojang Studios prepared a digital property commitment, urging studios to examine the shortcomings of cryptocurrencies and non-transferable tokens (NFT) before introducing them into games.
In a statement released by gaming group Climate Replay on April 26, its authors state the following:
For the health of the global gaming community, the planet, and society as a whole, it is critical to ensure that any adoption of blockchain-based technologies such as NFTs only occurs when they bring value to games and their communities. In doing so, it is important to consider all potential social and environmental consequences.
The parties to the agreement promise not to create games with artificial scarcity and speculation, where rich players are favored and unstable and energy-intensive digital assets are used.
Along with this is a comprehensive guide to NFT, the underlying technology, risks, environmental costs, and more.
