GTA 6 To Launch In-Game Cryptocurrency?
Leading gaming enthusiast Tom Henderson was the first to leak the information that GTA 6 might include in-game cryptocurrency. “I heard recently that in GTA 6, some missions will reward you in bitcoin instead of cash for completing some missions,” he tweeted. Henderson added that the stock market feature, which was seen in GTA 5 will return in the next franchise.
“The stock market feature will return, with the addition of a broker for different cryptocurrencies. If GTA 6 incorporates this right, it’s huge for crypto,” he said on X.
Henderson further added, “Just so there’s even less confusion – I’m not joking. This is what I heard from a someone that I trust and it will likely not be called Bitcoin per say – But it will be a cryptocurrency. That being said – Always take info like this with a bit of salt.”
