The world’s most popular PC game store has ignored NFT games, bucking the trend
Steam, a popular video game digital distribution service operated by Valve, has moved to purge all games that include non-fungible tokens (NFTs) or cryptocurrencies, NME reports.
An update added to Valve’s onboarding page states that such apps should not be published on Steam in a blow to players who embrace the new technology.
With the growing popularity of blockchain-based games from the likes of Axie Infinity, the gaming world appears to be divided on NFTs.
In late September, Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney flatly rejected the idea of exploring NFTs. in a Biting tweet, the chief maker of Fortnite described the burgeoning crypto sector as a “hard-to-resolve mix of scams.”
Meanwhile, a recent announcement by EA Sports, a division of Electronic Arts, indicates that the popular video game company is ready to get involved in NFTs.
As reported by U.Today, Grand Theft Auto 6 is also rumored to include in-game cryptocurrency.
