Over time, projects like NFT Worlds and skins have incorporated the technology into the game. Furthermore, people in NFT have naturally gravitated towards the game for its allowance of modifying it.
It looks like Mojang is stepping in to halt these projects. Through an official post on its website and Twitter, Minecraft made its stance on the technology.
"To ensure that Minecraft players have a safe and inclusive experience, blockchain technologies are not permitted to be integrated inside our Minecraft client and server applications nor may they be utilized to create NFTs associated with any in-game content…"

They further clarified that the technology is not permitted to be integrated inside the client and server applications and cannot be used to create NFTs using in-game content.
It is advisable to head over to the official post by the company to read about the policy in detail. For now, it is safe to say that the game isn’t allowing for anything NFTs.
