The Epic Games Store welcomes games that use blockchain technology.”

Yesterday valve Tell the developers that they won’t allow games with NFT or cryptocurrency In front of their digital store Steam. Since then, Epic has followed He told The Verge that the Epic Games Store will be “open for games that support cryptocurrency or blockchain-based assets.”

When asked about games that include NFTs, Epic said there will be limitations but they are willing to work with developers in the “new space”.

Follow Tim Sweeney’s story on The Verge on Twitter with personal tweet. He wrote: “Epic Games will welcome games that use blockchain technology provided that they operate within the relevant laws, disclose their terms and are age-classified by the appropriate group. Although Effie does not use coding in our games, we welcome the technology and funding for innovation,” he wrote. Co-founder of Epic.

It seems counterintuitive tweet Sweeney came back less than three weeks ago. “We don’t touch on NFTs,” he wrote, “because the entire field is currently entangled with an impossible mix of scams, decentralized technology fundamentals, and interesting hoaxes.”

Sweeney may have meant only his epic games, though “we don’t touch” is a broad and improbable language from “open to ‘ready-to-work'”.

The Epic Game Store is fighting for market share against Steam’s dominance, mostly through exclusive use and freebies. Offering blockchain-based games might attract quite a few developers, but it insults me a lot as a user. I would like the Epic Games Store to be successful, because the competition is generally good, but I’m glad Steam has NFT games from their store and I hope Effie will change their mind.
