Markus Persson has distributed personal dividends from Mojang’s last fiscal year of $3 million to his team.

He stated on Twitter: “Every single Mojangsta is a massive part of the reason Mojang is the best place on earth to work at right now.”

The gesture was part of a celebration as Minecraft PC sales have surpassed 5 million units.

Minecraft update 1.2 went live yesterday.

Thanks, Gamasutra.
