Enjin just launched a new plugin for Minecraft
  • Enjin (ENJ) new plugin for Minecraft will allow players to introduce digital assets into the game.
  • EnjinCraft, players will be able to develop entire in-game economies and securely trade assets.
  • This is the second plugin that Enjin created for Minecraft, with the first one, DonationCraft.

The crypto industry has always had an excellent relationship with gaming, which was among the first great industries to start accepting it. Now, this excellent partnership continues thanks to a new effort made by a crypto project Enjin (ENJ).

What did Enjin do?

Enjin just launched a new plugin for Minecraft, which has been one of the most popular video games for years. With the new plugin, players can easily introduce blockchain assets directly into their servers.

The plugin is called EnjinCraft, and it is completely open-source. Its goal is to allow players to directly spawn assets into their game without needing to know how to write code.

It is a new, user-friendly tool that drops the EnjinCraft file into the player’s plugin folder on their server. Then, the player can start integrating and sharing blockchain assets in token form.

Not Enjin’s first Minecraft plugin

As some may know, this is actually not the first plugin for Minecraft that Enjin had created. The company created its first plugin, DonationCraft, all the way back in 2013. Back then, it collaborated on the project with Bukkit. Over the years, the plugin was downloaded about 5.1 million times.

DonationCraft has a pretty simple purpose, and that is to allow players to grow their Minecraft servers. It does this by creating an entire server website, and a donation store. 

The new plugin will allow players to create their own Minecraft economies. As such, they will be able to provide players with ownership of items and currencies within the game. In addition to that, they will also be able to trade their in-game assets in a secure way.

In addition to all of this, Enjin also released a software development kit for Java that is also fully open-source. That way, developers can implement blockchain in desktop, mobile, and web apps, as long as they use Java.
