Discord Launches Support for MetaMask and WalletConnect. Not Everyone was Happy
Discord CEO Jason Citron posted a screenshot on Twitter hinting at the launch of support for MetaMask and WalletConnect integration.
If the feature goes live, Discord users will be able to actively participate in the upcoming crypto initiatives like NFT, Web 3.0 and token adoption.
Citron’s announcement of the upcoming integration of the Ethereum blockchain was in response to a tweet by Paki McCormick, founder of Not Boring, who shared an article describing the capabilities of the Discord product as an ideal gaming space.
While the announcement of the Discord app was aimed at accelerating cryptocurrency adoption, not all members of the gaming community were excited about the innovation, highlighting the ecosystem’s current carbon footprint, money laundering, and uncertainties in the NFT market.
And some users have even stopped subscribing to Discord Nitro’s premium service because of this.
If the new feature succeeds, Discord users will have access to the actively developing NFT marketplace. More and more people are taking an active part in its development, from famous show business stars to politicians and investment magnates.
