"For now we are focused on protecting users from spam, scams and fraud. Web3 has lots of good but also lots of problems we need to work through at our scale. More soon," Citron added.
Earlier this week, Discord teased a new feature that would allow users to link their accounts with a cryptocurrency wallet called MetaMask. According to a tweet published by Discord's founder, Jason Citron, the company was also exploring linking wallets via WalletConnect, a web3 service that connects various blockchain networks.
However, the Reddit thread titled "Discord developers: please do not support NFTs," which got 7,000 upvotes, pointed out that most non-fungible tokens (NFTs) appear to have "little value and exist only to speculate on."
