Game News Bitcoin: what if GTA 6 integrated cryptocurrency into the game?
As you surely know, rumors go hand in hand with the release of a new opus of Grand Theft Auto. Thus, in recent years, we have been able to “learn” that the story of the game was going to take place in almost all the cities of the world and that it was going to be released in 2020… This time, a new rumor is panicking the players: the Bitcoin blockchain could be integrated directly into Rockstar’s game and make GTA 6 a possible play-to-earn.
Bitcoin on GTA 6 a longtime rumor
The “leak” appeared for the first time in June 2021 on Twitter via the account Tom Henderson, a recognized editor in the video game sphere.
“I heard recently that in GTA 6 some missions will reward you with bitcoins instead of cash for completing certain missions. The stock exchange function will return, with the addition of a broker for different cryptocurrencies.” “Just so there’s no confusion, I mean in-game bitcoin payments.” probably won’t be called “Bitcoin” strictly speaking – but it will be a cryptocurrency. explained Tom Henderson on June 3, 2021, claiming to have access to reliable sources.
The rumor could have ended there, only this one resurfaced a few days ago with other information at the key…
Indeed, the best-selling game series in history has been the subject of several rumors in recent days. According to some leaks from the Matheusvictorbr Twitter account, the 6th installment of GTA could take place from Brazil to the west coast of Florida.
But above all, GTA could embed a Bitcoin or cryptocurrency reward system in its gameplay.
If the leak on the integration of blockchain into the game turns out to be true, then GTA could well become a play-to-earn…
Will GTA 6 be play-to-earn?
First of all, to understand what it is, know that a play-to-earn is a game based on the blockchain, the technology behind cryptocurrencies. In this type of game, we get rewards in NFT or cryptocurrency, usually based on our performance.
For example, the best known P2Es are: Axie Infinity, Gods Unchained, The Sandbox…
If the gameplay of GTA 6 does indeed integrate this type of technology then you could receive a reward in Bitcoin (BTC) or cryptocurrency, exclusive to GTA, by completing a few missions. Afterwards, it would surely be possible to resell your cryptocurrency or make purchases directly in-game.
A perspective not totally insane when you know that Rockstar has already integrated the stock market into its gameplay.
Indeed, in GTA 5 released in 2013, players could access a fictitious stock exchange via their mobile phone in order to buy and resell shares with in-game currency.
However, this information should be taken with a grain of salt since we still don’t know even the release date of the game…
