Create your ‘Minecraft’ world on the BCH blockchain
You can now build your very own universe powered on the Bitcoin BCH blockchain, with the launch of craft.cash for desktop browsers.
The developer ‘Jt’ announced his creation on reddit, with username blockparty.sh. “I think this is the first 3d realtime application built on top of blockchain technology,” they said in their user profile.
They explained that the open-source program “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, effectively creating an immutable decentralized voxel world.”
As described on the website, the program uses the BlockParty wallet. There are 2563 possible positions and 255 colors to choose from. “For every 51 blocks you have queued for sync, there is 1 transaction. For every transaction, there is a fee of 1,000 satoshis,” it states.
User _unwriter, whom ‘Jt’ credited as having “developed bitdb and bitsocket which are what power the ‘backend’” of craft.cash, posted their own demonstration of not entirely wholesome world creation on Twitter.
If you can build a 4 Dimensional, Time-traveling, Infinite virtual universe on Bitcoin Cash blockchain, you can build ANYTHING.

“If you can build a 4 Dimensional, Time-traveling, Infinite virtual universe on Bitcoin Cash blockchain, you can build ANYTHING,” _unwriter said in their tweet. “Don’t waste your time with a bunch of loser blockchains.”
_unwriter noted, “Many have raised hundreds of millions of dollars in ICOs to build something like this, with NONE delivered so far. But Jt built this all on his own, with zero funding and zero scam ICOs, on the ONLY blockchain that’s infinitely scalable—Bitcoin Cash.”
The program was developed with the current Bitcoin BCH protocol, which goes to show how much BCH could do without resorting to untested and risky protocol changes.
Bitcoin SV (Satoshi Vision) offers miners a full-node implementation that enables the BCH network to massively scale, and allows for tokenization on the BCH chain, all while staying true to the original protocol.
Note: Tokens on the Bitcoin Core (segwit) Chain are Referred to as BTC coins. Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) is today the only Bitcoin implementation that follows Satoshi Nakamoto’s original whitepaper for Peer to Peer Electronic Cash. Bitcoin BSV is the only major public blockchain that maintains the original vision for Bitcoin as fast, frictionless, electronic cash.
