It has long been a fantasy to have Notch's Minecraft interact with bitcoin in some way. Unfortunately, it isn't that easy to do, and only just now are we seeing some very rudimentary integration.

However, Notch is now working on a new space simulation, complete with its own in game computing platform, meaning players can create and run arbitrary code! This is the opening we have been waiting for! Can working bitcoin software be created on such a measly spec? I doubt it! But it's an interesting challenge to say the least.

Can you give a little more explanation of how it is being implemented?  Are you referring to the user who is creating a way for users to get paid for mining in minecraft?

The idea is for bitcoin to be a game currency of sorts but on a whole new level. Because the spaceship CPU can be player programmable the bitcoin client could actually be player written.

Why would you want bitcoin in a game? Isn't the point of games to escape the real world and all its entails? Bringing in real money seems very counter to that goal.

Well, given the specification of the system, (16 bit words, very limited memory, limited access to reliable data storage, no actual networking capability that has been announced...), I doubt it would be possible to develop software that is actually compatible with bitcoin proper. But, perhaps an internal independent p2p cryptocurrency can be developed within the parameters of the system, adopted by the player base, which could then be easily traded for bitcoin.

I'm just surprised that no one is working on 10coin, is all I'm saying.

Any monetary system is a game system. It has arbitrary rules, arbitrary goals and arbitrary participation.
