S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 NFT Plans Nuked

After the Internet melted down over the announcement of plans to add blockchain elements to S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl, GSC Game World tweets this plan has been scrapped. Presumably the NFTs planned for the shooter sequel will be consigned to some sort of exclusion zone:
Dear STALKERS,

We hear you.

Based on the feedback we received, we've made a decision to cancel anything NFT related in S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2.

The interests of our fans and players are the top priority for the team. We're making this game for you to enjoy — whatever the cost is. If you care, we care too.

With love,

GSC Game World Team.

Cryptocurrency being illegal worldwide would definitely put a damper on mining, because currently the mining operations are not exactly small, and they draw an insane amount of power. Whole power stations, even in the USA, have been devoted to mining operations, most are publicly known. They would be shut down quickly if mining cryptocurrency was actually made illegal.

Unfortunately even major financial groups have started tentatively buying into cryptocurrency, it's available on every phone/PC payment application, Paypal, Venmo, etc. so I don't see it getting made illegal anytime soon, at least as a whole.

I would like to see proof of work coins get made illegal pretty much immediately, the mathematics of power use for those, particularly the biggest example, Bitcoin, simply does not work for human survival.
