Will Grand Theft Auto VI Include A Cryptocurrency?

Take-Two and Rockstar might be going extremely revolutionary with the next instalment in the Grand Theft Auto series (which has become a mainstream thing in the past decade).


A few days ago, we already had Grand Theft Auto VI in the news as a new theory popped up that described how one of its locations could be Rio de Janeiro. The game has to be in development, as let’s face it, GTA V hasn’t been a best-seller in recent years, and it especially hasn’t been selling as strong as it did in say, 2013, when the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 got it first. (And it still won’t stop Take-Two from releasing it on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series, too.)

Tom Henderson, who has been mentioned in the news mostly due to Battlefield 6 (or Battlefield?), wrote the following on Twitter: „I heard recently that in Grand Theft Auto VI, some missions will reward you in Bitcoin instead of cash for completing some missions. The stock market feature will return, with the addition of a broker for different cryptocurrencies.

If Grand Theft Auto VI incorporates this right, it’s huge for crypto. Just so there’s no confusion, I mean in-game payments of Bitcoin. These payments will come from the higher up characters that need to transfer high amounts of „untraceable cash and fast.” Just so there’s even less confusion – I’m not joking. This is what I heard from someone that I trust and it will likely not be called „Bitcoin” per se, but it will be a cryptocurrency. That being said – Always take info like this with a bit of salt!”, Henderson wrote.

It could be a ballsy move from Take-Two, who thus could be working on creating a new cryptocurrency. If it gets into gear, and Grand Theft Auto Online uses it, too, then it might put some food on the table for a few players…
