Shitty tech ℹ️
Fuck yeah, Microsoft. It’s not my favorite angle to piss on blockchain / NFT bullshit, which to me are first and foremost ecocidal solutions looking for a problem. But okay! “Misalignment with values of creative inclusion” will do! Sure! Whatever floats your PR boat today, and more of this, please.
Each of these uses of NFTs and other blockchain technologies creates digital ownership based on scarcity and exclusion, which does not align with Minecraft values of creative inclusion and playing together. NFTs are not inclusive of all our community and create a scenario of the haves and the have-nots.
The speculative pricing and investment mentality around NFTs takes the focus away from playing the game and encourages profiteering, which we think is inconsistent with the long-term joy and success of our players.
