Neutral Minecraft-Like Platform Craft.cash Brings a 3D World to Bitcoin Cash

On Oct. 8, a new application was introduced to the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) community called Craft.cash, a BCH-powered onchain platform that's similar to the popular block building game Minecraft. According to the development team called Blockparty, the Craft.cash game allows anyone to encode colorful voxel data into the three-dimensional world using op-return outputs stemming from BCH transactions.

Craft.cash: An Artistic Voxel Block World Stored Within the Bitcoin Cash Blockchain

There's a new voxel-playground available for Bitcoin Cash users called Craft.cash that allows people to create an "immutable decentralized voxel world," according to the creators. Essentially the platform is a virtual world where users can build environments using different color blocks and onchain transactions. When you first enter the website the platform gives you a Blockparty wallet mnemonic phrase and a text file that also contains the private key.

The open source application does not work for mobile phones, so users have to play with Craft.cash using a desktop browser. In order to build an immutable pattern of blocks in the world, you need to deposit funds into the wallet. The developers say that every transaction costs roughly 1,000 satoshis for network fees and there's a maximum of 51 voxels (blocks) per transaction.

"This encodes voxel data in a binary format using op-return outputs of bitcoin transactions. With this design we can then look back into time to construct a world up until any Bitcoin block," explained the Blockparty developer on Reddit.

Bright, Colorful, and Possibly 'Four Dimensional'

It takes some time to get used to the controls that allow you to travel around the virtual world and view the onchain art space without spending any money. A lot of BCH users have been using the application since it was launched and there are various structures, bitcoin cash symbols, and messages written throughout the landscape. There is a large number of colors available to choose from when designing various patterns and structures with the blocks. The creator has said there is no "pure black and white" in Craft.cash and everything in the world has a bit of color.

"This was done to give more room for color scales at expense of missing some things - Perhaps in future, I'll do something to add more, but for now it's bright and colorful," Blockparty detailed. The creator emphasized he is open to ideas and pull requests concerning adding voxel shadows. "I'd like to actually make it possible to have a little graphics config to enable/disable different things at some point," the creator adds.

Even with all the current participants playing around and decorating the Craft.cash world, there is still lots of room to design and participate. Moreover, it is possible to delete the blocks that others have built by paying to remove them, the developer has explained. The well-known BCH developer Unwriter also enjoyed the fact the application uses Bitdb 2.0 and Bitsocket. When BCH proponents discussed the project on Reddit forums, many people complimented it for creating a 3D block placement system. Unwriter responded to the project's announcement on Reddit and explained that Craft.cash is actually four-dimensional as opposed to three.

"[It's] even cooler, actually it's 4D - With an additional axis of "time" - Because everything is stored on the blockchain, they are all time-stamped by block so you can display a snapshot of the universe at a specific point in time," the developer explained.
