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.
