Discord has cancelled plans to integrate Ethereum-based NFTs via MetaMask and Wallet Connect after users opposed the move.
The company CEO Jason Citron has acknowledged the community perspective saying that there were no immediate plans to ship the concept.
Discord says that it prioritizes user protection against fraud. The company has further added that though Web3 had many opportunities, there were challenges.
The Discord community earlier made thousands of comments asking the firm to abandon the integration plan or cancel Nitro subscriptions. Those against it cited environmental damages of NFTs, terming it as a Ponzi scheme.
About 6,400 users approved a Reddit post on the discord community dated November 9, rallying support against the integration plans. Uniswap’s founder Hayden Adams said the online reaction was unreal and that Web 3.0 had a long way to go.
