GDC Survey Indicates that Developers are Not Interested in NFTs or Crypto.
A recent GDC survey suggests that the craze and massive buzz behind crypto, blockchain-based games, and NFT games have lessened.
The survey is conducted every year before the Game Developers Conference show to assess what creators and developers are inclined towards. Moreover, the poll also considers the new trend the gaming and tech industry welcomes and experiences.
With 2022 already underway with renewed challenges, the survey makes the gaming industry all the more interesting.
Despite a massive wave of excitement and craze of crypto, metaverse, blockchain, and NFT Games, the creators and developers seem less enthusiastic now. The poll numbers overwhelmingly say “No thanks, we are good.”
Many of the respondents went anonymous and shared their thoughts about ‘the future of video games.’
Following are some of the comments: “How this hasn’t been identified as a pyramid scheme is beyond me.”
“Burn ‘em to the ground. Ban everyone involved in them. I work at an NFT company currently and am quitting to get away from it.”
“They’re going to drive a wedge right in the heart of this industry. It’s going to become really clear what folks’ motivations are, and it’s not going to be pretty.”
“Why do we need them? What benefit does it have putting these systems into our games? Who is using these things? It feels like a very small audience. And also, these technologies are still not using sustainable energy and are a target for money laundering.
As a developer I feel deeply uncomfortable that there is a push for these. It feels entirely fueled by greed for more money because we read stories about crypto millionaires, when in reality all of it is extremely unstable and unethical.”
An overwhelmingly 72% of poll respondents said that they are not interested in cryptocurrency as a payment tool. In the second question, 70% of developers said that their studios are not interested in NFTs.
With recent crumble in crypto market where trillions of dollars wiped out, people are becoming wary of cryptoverse and other new ideas.
