Rumors are rife that GTA 6 might have an in-built cryptocurrency in the gameplay. The speculations came from Insider Gaming founder, Tom Henderson. The founder tweeted that a source confirmed to him that Rockstar Games is working on a cryptocurrency integration in GTA 6. He added that some missions in the game will reward users with cryptocurrency by anonymous billionaires.

Since transferring cryptocurrencies does not reveal the identity of the person, billionaires in the gameplay prefer paying through digital assets.

Henderson stated that the stock market feature might also return in GTA 6 and have more missions than in GTA 5. For the uninitiated, the character named Lester manipulates the stock markets through Michael in a mission in GTA 5. The main characters could also buy and sell stocks to earn money in the gameplay. In its previous installments in GTA 4, the stock market building was shown to have no features in the game.

Considering how ahead Rockstar Games position itself in its gameplay, it won’t come as a surprise if they include cryptocurrencies. However, we will have to wait and watch for the trailer to know if the game includes cryptocurrency or not. Recent leaks suggest that Rockstar Games could release GTA 6 in 2025, 12 years after the previous installment was out.
