Quote from Tim Sweeney less than 20 days ago on Twitter:
"We aren't touching NFTs as the whole field is currently tangled up with an intractable mix of scams, interesting decentralized tech foundations, and scams."
Not more than 3 weeks later, and just because Steam has taken a stance on this, they find another opportunity to differentiate their platform- in the worst way possible. It's no secret that blockchain usage in games is mainly centered around NFT "ownership" thus far, and he has openly acknowledged that these are a scam proposition. I think this is super-shady.
And holy shit I've never considered a ad blocker on mobile before commenting on this site from my phone. What an awful experience.. screen moving around constantly blocking what I'm typing as the keyboard and comment box fight for space with these ads attacking from both top and bottom at the same time. Complete shit.
He said NFTs. This is about Blockchain.
You realize those aren't synonyms, no? And he didn't mention NFTs here?
You also realize he sometimes speaks as a game developer, sometimes an engine developer, and sometimes a store executive, and that those aren't always the same statements?
