Indie game site itch.io has taken to Twitter to let everyone know how it feels about one of the biggest and lucrative blockchain technology trends of today, NFTs. According to the open marketplace that allows users to sell their independent video games and more, NFTs are nothing more than “scams” that are designed to exploit people while hurting the planet. Itch.io also called NFT supporters “dense” and to “fu*k any company” that endorses them, alleging that they only care about their own profits.
A few have asked about our stance on NFTs:— itch.io (@itchio) February 6, 2022
NFTs are a scam. If you think they are legitimately useful for anything other than the exploitation of creators, financial scams, and the destruction of the planet the we ask that please reevaluate your life choices.
How can you be so dense? 😢— itch.io (@itchio) February 6, 2022
