MyMetaverse and Enjin announced that they have launched non-fungible tokens (NFT) playable on Grand Theft Auto V and Minecraft game servers.

The MyMetaverse “MetaHome” NFT collection is the first to be created on Efinity, an NFT parachain built on Polkadot. Sydney, Australia-based MyMetaverse said these are the first in-game NFTs minted on Efinity through the MetaHome NFT collection. NFTs can be used across MyMeteverse’s full suite of games, including player-created servers for Minecraft and GTA5.

MyMetaverse is a game development company specializing in creator-driven metamorphosis with play-and-earn economies. He said that at launch, NFTs perform different functions in three different games.

MetaHome NFTs offer unique game utility in every world where they are recognized. In Infinity Auto, a MyMetaverse Grand Theft Auto (GTA) 5 server, they take the form of a rare vehicle. in Survival Infinity, a MyMetaverse Minecraft server, NFTs become a special sword.

I asked if these NFT integrations were specifically approved by Rockstar Games or Take-Two Interactive, the companies responsible for Grand Theft Auto V, or Microsoft, which owns Minecraft developer Mojang.

In response, MyMetaverse said in a statement, “To clarify, NFTs have been minted in Efinity and can be integrated into the MyMetaverse Grand Theft Auto and Minecraft game servers. In Infinity Auto, a MyMetaverse Grand Theft Auto (GTA) 5 server, they take the form of a rare vehicle. in Survival Infinity, a MyMetaverse Minecraft server, they become a special sword. In answer to your question, they are not official integrations with Rockstar or Minecraft.”

MyMetaverse is one of the ecosystem partners granted early access to make NFTs available on Efinity, with a number of projects waiting to be integrated in the coming weeks. Enjin, the ecosystem for integrating NFTs into virtual worlds, is helping to build Efinity, a Polkadot-based parachain designed to enable fast and affordable NFT transactions.

The launch of NFTs on Efinity, a scalable, decentralized, cross-platform network designed to bring NFTs to everyone, is a milestone for Enjin and the next-generation blockchain built on Polkadot, the companies said.

“We believe that the most valuable NFTs will be the ones that have the greatest impact on people’s everyday experiences,” Simon Kertonegoro, CEO and founder of MyMetaverse, said in a statement. “With utility across three separate games, the MetaHome Collection is an exploration of blockchain-enabled interoperability between games. Thanks to Enjin’s toolbox, it is now the first playable NFT in the Polkadot ecosystem.”

In addition to the GTA 5 and Minecraft servers, the MetaHome collection is already operational on other MyMetaverse titles, including the massively multiplayer online game (MMO) Infinity Realms. MyMetaverse leverages Enjin’s Open Platform to integrate the MetaHome NFT collection into its game servers.

Witek Radomski, CTO of Enjin, said in a statement: “Enjin aims to be the NFT highway connecting game studios and their users on the blockchain. Leveraging Enjin’s comprehensive suite of tools and the scalability of the Efinity parachain, we are excited to partner with MyMetaverse to integrate NFT into AAA games like GTA 5––allowing players to own digital collectibles in their favorite games.”

An exclusive set of game studios currently have access to the Efinity development platform, following the official launch in March. The most recent adopters include Square Enix and Entropia Universe, which join an ecosystem of more than 100 gaming studios based on Efinity before it’s released to the wider development community, Enjin said. Enjin has also built a blockchain explorer, wallet, marketplace and various developer tools to support Efinity’s development.

MyMetaverse was founded in 2018.
