Rumor: GTA 6 may include fictional cryptocurrency. What if?
- Grand Theft Auto 5 is the second best selling video game of all time.
- Rumors suggest that the sequel may include fictional in-game coding.
- GTA 6 can become a game-changer in the crypto world, both positively and negatively.
In June, popular game leaker Tom Henderson posted a tweet revealing a rumor that certain story missions in the upcoming GTA 6 will pay rewards with only fictional in-game cryptocurrency, rather than regular currency. Of course, the information is just rumours, but Henderson is notorious for previous successful leaks of Call of Duty and Battlefield announcements.
The game has a huge fan base and everyone in the community is hoping to make some announcements after the recent E3 2021 conference. However, the event passed with no news of GTA 6.
I recently heard that in GTA 6, some missions will reward you with bitcoin instead of cash for completing some missions. The stock market feature will return, with the addition of a broker for different cryptocurrencies. If GTA 6 has that right, it’s huge for cryptocurrencies.

Grand Theft Auto Effect > Elon Musk-ish Effect
If you haven’t heard of the GTA series – which is almost impossible – it is the largest and most detailed open world game ever created. Just imagine staying overnight in play store during your childhood. GTA brings the same feeling but with an entire virtual city instead of just a shop; Players are free to do whatever they want.
Rockstar Games, the development studio, has set very high standards since the first game in the series. Initially, the game should have been a simulation of a criminal lifestyle, but it has become so much more than that. One sequel after another, the developers have included all the real-life features of the video game: from mobile phones and the Internet to stock investments. He even broke the fourth wall with the iFruit mobile app.
GTA series facts and figures that go beyond technical qualities:
- GTA 5 is the second best selling video game ever created after Minecraft
- GTA 5 is the second most watched game on Twitch, despite its release in late 2013
- GTA 5 sold 11.2 million copies in 24 hours after release and made $1 billion in three days
- GTA 5 is still the most expensive game in history, with half the budget spent on marketing
Just imagine the impact on the market if the sequel included cryptocurrency, even if it was fictional!
on the flip side
- Rockstar Games lived up to its name. In fact, they have classic rock star behavior but in the video game world. It could also be that they are playing on the dark side of cryptocurrency when portraying and implementing its functions.
- The game will not be released soon. Most likely, we will need to wait another two years.
dreams come true?
This video game can change the game. In theory, half of the world’s players will get paid in-game fantasy cryptocurrencies, if the leaked rumors are true. In fact, this is one of the scenarios of how cryptocurrency will leave the geeky circles. And yes, popular game titles are much more than just geek-oriented content.
Thus, GTA 6 has the potential to be the kind of crypto amplifier that Elon Musk never dreamed of. However, the consequences of such an adventurous venture will always be a double-edged sword.
Man’s suggestions, developer actions
This situation is very similar to the in-game policies that car manufacturers apply to their cars; You won’t see a brand new Mercedes in the Destruction Derby. No car manufacturer wants their cars to be crushed like an accordion bellows, even in a computer game.
Thus, you won’t see any officially licensed BMW, Audi, or other popular cars that receive anything more than scratches while riding.
In addition, Rockstar Games are themselves exciting developers. The Grand Theft Auto series was censored in Australia, Germany, some African countries as well as Latin American countries.
Furthermore, they have stuck to their metaphorical and virtual in-game weapons, while some game studios have bowed to pressure from human rights organizations, particularly those that campaign for gender equality and anti-harassment, and to craft their content as they wish to see it. In it, Rockstar has always chosen a more hands-off approach. In short, Rockstar Games doesn’t really care about the attacks of any communities. Thus, they will probably not protect the cryptocurrency and will not be afraid to expose its dark side.
Let’s face it: It won’t happen soon. The time frames between the sequences were growing exponentially. There was 1 year between GTA 3 and Vice City, then 4 between San Andreas and GTA 4. In the end, we waited 5 years for GTA 5.
Most likely, the next game in the series will be released after 2023. The value of GTA, for example, has increased since 2013. Given how quickly the crypto world is changing, this application may also be too late – the world of cryptocurrency is turning upside down Several times a year.
It remains to be seen how the crypto part of the GTA franchise could be. For one thing, the game won’t have a local virtual Elon Mask tweeting and impacting the market.
We’re still on stage at the Imaginarium’s sandbox, which is a good thing. Hope is always good.
