Instant messaging platform Discord may soon launch support for MetaMask and WalletConnect integrations as evidenced by a pre-release screenshot shared by the platform’s CEO, Jason Citron. However, a portion of the Discord community raised concerns about the update while threatening to cancel its Nitro subscriptions.
The new feature will allow Discord users to actively participate in upcoming crypto initiatives such as NFTs, Web 3.0 and token adoption.
While Citron’s screenshot of the pre-released Discord application aims to expedite crypto adoption, the gaming community resisted the move by highlighting the ecosystem’s ongoing issues with carbon emissions, money laundering and uncertainties within the nonfungible token (NFT) market.
Moreover, the backlash also resulted in numerous users ending subscriptions to Discord Nitro, the platform’s premium service offering that costs $4.99 per month and $49.99 for a year.
On the other side of the spectrum, many users from the gaming community also see this move as a step in the right direction.
