Of course gaming isn’t exactly the target for this technology now but the anti-web3 sentiment is strong. Like this comment from a recent survey of developers by the folks behind the Game Developers Conference:
Why do we need them? What benefit does it have putting these systems into our games? Who is using these things? It feels like a very small audience. And also, these technologies are still not using sustainable energy and are a target for money laundering. As a developer I feel deeply uncomfortable that there is a push for these. It feels entirely fueled by greed for more money because we read stories about crypto millionaires, when in reality all of it is extremely unstable and unethical.
How this hasn’t been identified as a pyramid scheme is beyond me.
