Discord plans to integrate Ethereum into its network with Metamask and WalletConnect
The CEO and founder of Discord posted a screenshot of the Integrations section of Discord on Twitter. It shows a new possibility of Ethereum support via MetaMask and WalletConnect crypto wallets. With a possible upgrade, users will be able to connect their Ethereum "accounts" directly from the app.
Some users believe that Discord is not secure enough, and servers are often the target of phishing attacks. The addition of Ethereum support will only make things worse. Journalist Colin WU stated that Discord's decision to choose Ethereum as its supported cryptocurrency is questionable due to unrealistically high fees, especially for frequent transactions.
Adding in-app cryptocurrency support is the ability to leverage NFTs, which will find their way into some industry-related servers. With the growth of the NFT industry, most projects have used Discord as their main source of communication, including marketing and sales.
