Sydney, Australia-based MyMetaverse says these are the first in-game NFTs to be minted on Efinity through the MetaHome NFT collection. NFTs can be used in the full MyMeteverse game suite, including player-configured servers for Minecraft and GTA5.
MyMetaverse is a game development company specializing in creator-led swaps with a play and monetization economy. It said that at launch, the NFTs performed different functions in three different games.

I asked if these NFT integrations were specifically approved by Rockstar Games or Take-Two Interactive, the companies behind Grand Theft Auto V, or Microsoft, which owns the Minecraft developer Mojang.
In response, MyMetaverse said in a statement, “For clarity, the NFTs were minted on Efinity and can be combined in the MyMetaverse Grand Theft Auto and Minecraft gaming servers. In Infinity Auto, MyMetaverse Grand Theft Auto (GTA) 5 servers, they take the form of a rare car; in Survival Infinity, a MyMetaverse Minecraft server, they become a special sword. In answer to your question, they are not an official integration with Rockstar or Minecraft. “
MyMetaverse is one of the early access ecosystem partners to offer NFT on Efinity, with a host of projects waiting to be rolled out in the coming weeks. Enjin, the ecosystem for integrating NFT into the virtual world, is helping to build Efinity, a parachain built on Polkadot and designed to enable fast and affordable NFT transactions.
The companies say the launch of NFT on Efinity, a scalable, decentralized, cross-chain network designed to bring NFT to everyone, is a major milestone for Enjin and the blockchain generation. The next is built on Polkadot.

Thanks to Enjin’s toolkit, 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 active in other MyMetaverse titles, including the massively multiplayer online (MMO) game Infinity Realms. MyMetaverse leverages Enjin’s Open Platform to integrate the MetaHome NFT collection across 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 to the blockchain. Leveraging Enjin’s comprehensive toolkit and the scalability of the Efinity parachain, we’re excited to partner with MyMetaverse to integrate NFT into AAA games like GTA 5 –– allowing gamers to own sets digital collectibles in their favorite games. “
A set of exclusive game studios now have access to Efinity’s development platform, following its official launch in March. Enjin says the latest adopters include Square Enix and Entropia Universe, who are also part of the Efinity development platform. join the ecosystem of over 100 gaming studios that are building on Efinity before it is released to the broader developer community. Enjin has also been building various blockchain explorer, wallet, marketplace and developer tools to support Efinity’s growth.
