It may seem that gamers agree that they do not want NFTs in games. Yet players have massively ridiculed Ubisoft’s idea of items that need 600 hours to play to get them, right? It seems so, but money is stronger at the end of the day than the collective gamer attitude, and we just got confirmation that resentment about NFTs in games won’t help as long as some see NFTs as an opportunity to get rich.

It comes to us from a well-known seller of often unfulfilled promises, Peter Molyneux, and promises, among other things, to rent virtual land to other players.
