SeekingAlpha suggested that Rockstar Games will introduce an in-game cryptocurrency mechanism that rewards players for completing certain missions. They predicted that blockchain and cryptocurrency development could serve as a springboard into the Metaverse segment.

However, gamers are skeptical about GTA 6 introducing cryptocurrency, the Metaverse, and NFTs in the upcoming game.

Nonetheless, if GTA 6 does include cryptocurrency and NFTs, Rockstar would be ahead of the game among its competitors. Moreover, a GTA 6 release date was not out at press time.
