Now firmly established and partly responsible for computer hardware shortages, cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and Aethernum are no longer welcome on Steam, as are unique digital objects and all blockchain systems.

Note: The video presented above dates from June 8 and evokes the rumors relayed by Tom Henderson, indicating that cryptocurrencies could have a role to play in the next GTA.

We are starting to get to know cryptocurrencies well, and some countries like El Salvador have even adopted Bitcoin as their official currency. Decentralized, these currencies are traded all over the world and outside the conventional currency system. For their part, the NFTs still have a little trouble getting established, but the principle is as follows: give a unique character to a virtual object to guarantee its value and authenticity. All of this works around a tamper-proof virtual account book, called the blockchain. Once a transaction is validated, it integrates this “book”, and the “page” is turned. From there, many developers tried to develop related apps and games possibly allowing to be rewarded in cryptocurrency or in NFT.

Some of them came out on Steam, like Age of Rust. However, Valve decided to ring recess end and simply banned all titles using blockchain, cryptocurrencies or NFTs. The platform has also updated the rules addressed to creators to notify them of this ban. At the moment, Steam has not yet given an explanation for this decision, but the platform could possibly wish to protect themselves from potential scams. Still, the decision made people react Epic Games, which has declared that it is open to this type of content through its Epic Games Store platform. In September, however, Epic reported that the NFTs were incompatible with titles such as Fortnite.
