Today, the MyMetaverse team has announced the launch of Nifty Basket, a WordPress plugin that automatically mints ERC-1155 Ethereum tokens on demand. WordPress is the world’s most popular website building tool and is used by over 455 million sites. This new plug-and-play WordPress integration uses the popular Enjin Development Platform to mint and send Ethereum assets as they are purchased by customers. The Nifty Basket team has advised that the plugin can be installed within a few minutes and no development experience is required.
Nifty Basket was created by an Australian company called Parallel Planes, who designed the WordPress integration to distribute assets through its flagship platform, MyMetaverse. The team has recently launched a blockchain-integrated Minecraft server, where players can synchronize their blockchain wallet to Minecraft, allowing them to use their Ethereum-based ERC-1155 tokens to unlock special characters, weapons, ranks, and content.
“The Ethereum Blockchain and the Enjin Platform have allowed us to break down barriers that we never knew existed,” said Simon Kertonegoro, Project Manager of MyMetaverse. “Today, everyday gamers can jump onto our website, buy some tokens, receive them to their non-custodial Enjin Wallet, and then use those same tokens to access exclusive content in Minecraft and other incredible games like Forgotten Artifacts. The fact that we can create assets with fixed supply and proven scarcity, and then allow players to use them across multiple games and apps has huge implications for an internet of value that is willing itself into existence.”
ERC-1155 tokens, in particular, have been growing in prominence since the standard was adopted by Ethereum in June 2018. A large community of developers, including Microsoft and Binance, have used the Enjin Platform to mint over 52 million blockchain assets. The Enjin team has also announced that they will be releasing a Minecraft plugin that will streamline the Ethereum-adoption process for Minecraft servers. Enjin’s previous Minecraft plugin, called DonationCraft, is one of the most popular Minecraft plugins in the world, attracting over 5 million downloads.
