NFTs in FFXIV? No, leave it

The discussion was sparked by the Happy New Year from Square Enix President Yosuke Matsuda, in which he discussed the possibilities of NFTs for games. In it, she emphasized the potential to attract groups of gamers who want to contribute more to their favorite game and get more in return than is often the case with purely user-generated content.
