Blockchain games, NFTs banned on Steam

Blockchain games and NFTs are now banned on the Steam platform, according to its new Steamworks documentation.

This change was pointed out by an NFT developer called SpacePirate_io, stating that the change was implemented because the company doesn’t want to allow games that give players items with real-world value.

On the other side of the spectrum, Epic told The Verge that they are open to the idea of games that use either NFTs or cryptocurrency structure. Although they are open to the idea, they did note that there would be some limitations but are willing to work with the developers who engage in this field.

Epic also shares that the games would have to comply with financial laws, make it clear how the blockchain works, and have appropriate agings. They also added that the Epic platform would not accept crypto as a form of payment.

Valve has yet to give its thoughts about the matter, so stick around for more updates like this.
