Discord community splits when CEO announces pre-released Ethereum integration

This new feature will enable Discord users to participate actively in upcoming crypto initiatives like NFTs, Web 3 or token adoption.
Citron’s announcement about the upcoming Ethereum (ETH), blockchain integration was a response to a tweet by Packy McCormick founder of Not Boring. He shared an article that said:Instant messaging platform Discord could soon launch support for MetaMask integrations, as evidenced in a prerelease screenshot shared by Jason Citron. However, a portion of the Discord community raised concerns about the update while threatening to cancel their Nitro subscriptions.”Imagine a human website. Imagine a place where dank memes are as sweet as honey. Imagine a place where potatoes thrive. Imagine a place where humans live in harmony with bots. Imagine, in other words, a place like Discord.”probably nothing pic.twitter.com/p4P6MoNGgd– Jason Citron (@jasoncitron) November 8, 2021

Citron’s screenshot of Discord’s pre-released Discord app aims to accelerate crypto adoption. However, the gaming community resisted this move by highlighting the ongoing issues within the NFT ecosystem with carbon emissions, money laundering, and uncertainties. Many users also ended their subscriptions to Discord Nitro ($4.99 per month, $49.99 for a one-year) and stopped paying the premium service. Olivia, a Discord user, said that NFTs being implemented in Discord would lead to bad PR and a decline in Nitro subscriptions due to a large number of people cancelling. NFTs are used mainly for tax evasion and money laundering. This is all a Ponzi scheme. Do not try to connect discord with this.– Olivia Wertheimer. (@kingdomfantasy6) November 8, 2021

Many gamers see this move as a positive step in the right direction. Bryce NFT, another user, responded to Olivia. “You just called the NFT space an illegal Ponzi scheme without any evidence.” You shouldn’t comment on any topic if you don’t know anything about it.Related: MetaMask has partnered with Bitfinex Pay to meet growing demand for crypto payments.
