Valve removes blockchain games from Steam

The video game company Valve, which operates the game platform Steam, among other things, has told its users that content related to cryptocurrencies or NFTs are not allowed.


Updated Steam Guidelines

This was also observed by the game developer ‘SpacePirate’. Steam’s guidelines have reportedly been updated on what developers are allowed to publish on the Steam platform. Due to the new change, it now states that no applications built on the blockchain technology that issue or permit cryptos or NFTs may be published on the platform.

The new rule appears alongside guidelines that prohibit hate speech, sexually explicit images, and defamatory or defamatory statements. SpacePirate said the following about the new rule:

“Steam’s stance is that items have value and they don’t allow items that can have real value on their platform. While I respect their choice, I fundamentally believe that NFTs and blockchain games will be the future.”
