Epic Welcomes Blockchain Games

Epic CEO Tim Sweeney takes the opportunity presented by the indication  that Steam may ban games based on blockchain technology to announce that the Epic Games Store will not. In a couple of tweets he outlines this stance, saying games still must comply with the law:
Epic Games Store will welcome games that make use of blockchain tech provided they follow the relevant laws, disclose their terms, and are age-rated by an appropriate group. Though Epic's not using crypto in our games, we welcome innovation in the areas of technology and finance.

As a technology, the blockchain is just a distributed transactional database with a decentralized business model that incentivize investment in hardware to expand the database's capacity. This has utility whether or not a particular use of it succeeds or fails.

The fact that the use of BlockChain is an environmental nonsense should be enough to delegitimize it. The fact that Sweeney endorses this environmental nonsense doesn't delegitimize it more, it only delegitimize Sweeney more. What utility does it have exactly ? That it incentivizes investment in hardware ? We can't get a bloody GPU at a decent price to play games already . Wants to push it further ? Maybe he wants to incentivize indie retro gaming? I am personally not looking forward to witnessing digital decline accelerate just because of a few morons who are bathing in their banknotes and sending cars onto the orbit.
