Minecraft is one of the most-loved games across the globe for more than a decade now. While other games go out of style at some point, Minecraft has indeed set a benchmark for being a long-standing craze. As if, its thrilling features of mining and crafting were not enough to wow the millions of players, it announced getting a Web3. It will be a fabulous revolution, especially for such a video game platform to get Web3 which is about World Wide Web-based on blockchain tech. Yes, it will mean a decentralized platform far away from the control of a single entity. Internet money and users’ trust are also the fundamental elements of this module.
It is pertinent to thank the non-affiliated Microsoft developers to give Minecraft this edge of Web3. The cherry on the cake will be NFT Worlds’ enhancement to Minecraft for letting all players use the fabulous Web3 features. Shopping Minecraft materials online with the help of a $WRLD ERC-20 token is expected to be one of the highlights.

It will indeed be a moment of sheer thrill for Minecraft enthusiasts because the Metaverse experience will be just a step away from this development. Polygon is also being reported to be a part of the whole procedure, which will bring relief as a way of lower gas aka lesser fee on relatable transactions.
NFT Worlds took to Twitter for announcing this exciting news with its followers and the world last Friday. Its Tweet was about being frictionless, and no fee for $WRLD transactions made everyone go gaga on spur of the moment. Viewers could also see an attached demo video in the same post that was played innumerable times.
Talking about numbers, it was never hidden that Microsoft purchased Mojang Studios, the developer of Minecraft in 2014 for $2.5 billion. However, the favorable part is that Minecraft has continued to grow immensely, especially when it comes to the number of its players. Just in one year, which is from 2020 to 2021, Minecraft has grown from 131 million to 141 million active users per month.
The numbers were impressive not just for Minecraft, but also for NFT Worlds. The price for NFT Worlds had been somewhat motionless prior; however, it suddenly increased by 10 Ethereum in just one month in 2022. Even its testing server received a terrific response of 26,000 player hours in the last month’s three-day period.
ArkDev, the co-founder of NFT Worlds also made some impactful statements on the present topic. He said, “Minecraft has a really large, custom thriving game development system”. However, he and the other founder also agree to recognize the risky position of establishing a Web3 system. Halting business without any prior notice on part of Microsoft is in their purview already. Still, they are hoping and working for the best because they believe to be the best opportunity providers for the current mechanism due to friendliness and fan base notions.
