Japanese students missed their graduation day as schools remain closed in Japan due to the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, but a group of graduating elementary students found a way to celebrate the joyous moment in “Minecraft.”
The virtual graduation was made possible by a group of friends who created an assembly hall in the popular video game “Minecraft,” according to SoraNews24.
A Minecraft player in Taiwan has attracted the local community of the popular sandbox video game after recreating his high school alma mater because he was missing it badly.
The player, a member of Taiwanese online network Dcard, started reproducing New Taipei Municipal Panchiao Senior High School in his first year of university and has now been building it for two years.
Talk about a massive undertaking!
Jordan Maron, a 23-year-old Youtuber who made his fortune recording himself playing the video game “Minecraft,” recently dropped over $4.5 million on a deluxe hilltop mansion in the Hollywood Hills.
Better known as CaptainSparklez on Youtube, Maron has an estimated 1.9 billion views on his channel.
Many people are set on the idea that money, fame and success will make them happy. Young entrepreneurs often think making it big means inventing a product people love and then selling it for billions. It’s easy to mistake such success with life satisfaction, but “Minecraft” founder Markus Persson reveals it isn’t what many people might imagine it to be.
Swedish video game programmer Markus Persson, also known as “Notch,” sold “Minecraft” to Microsoft neary a year ago for $2.5 billion. Instead of joining Microsoft after the sale, Persson went on to live in the lap of luxury. He purchased a $70 million Beverly Hills mansion equipped with a giant wall of dispensable candy, a 16-car garage and a huge infinity pool.
