Games communication platform Discord has seemingly changed its mind about crypto and NFTs.
In a statement to Techcrunch, the firm said that the plans hinted at by CEO Jason Citron on Twitter were part of a company-wide hackathon. This meant that developers were toying around with new ideas and technology, which seemingly included some Web 3.0 or decentralised ideas. The firm had also sent out a survey to users asking for their opinion on Web 3.0 concepts.
Taking once again to Twitter, Citron said that Discord didn’t have plans to bring this kind of functionality to Discord and that it was just an internal idea. He had previously tweeted an image of Discord integrated with crypto wallet service MetaMask and the protocol on which wallets are often built, WalletConnect.
“Thanks for all the perspectives everyone,” he wrote. “We have no current plans to ship this internal concept. For now we’re focused on protecting users from spam, scams and fraud. Web3 has lots of good but also lots of problems we need to work through at our scale. More soon.”
