The company aims to ease tokenizing Minecraft items while incorporating them within the players’ servers through blockchain technology.
The plugin is based in Java, with functionalities like the integration of the tool on external games, servers, and websites.
EnjinCraft’s plugin also includes the possibility of integrating blockchain-based Minecraft assets while attaching an existing blockchain asset identity to the in-game items via console commands.
It gives players the ability to link their blockchain wallet to their servers.
The plugin shows players their real-time Enjin Coin and Ethereum balance while providing special items and permissions to players based on the blockchain assets they own.
Enjin also highlights the possibility to initiate Ethereum transactions that can send blockchain assets to players via console commands.
Moreover, it will allow users to re-develop the open-source code to suit developers’ specifications and needs.
