Lil Durk’s ‘Grand Theft Auto’ server forced to shut down amid ban on Crypto & NFTs

Lil Durk’s ‘Grand Theft Auto’ server forced to shut down amid ban on Crypto & NFTs

Lil Durk’s “The Trenches” was involved in the crackdown on cryptocurrencies and NFTs in “Grand Theft Auto” role-play servers.

Lil Durk’s OTF Gaming ceased operations of its Grand Theft Auto role-play server “The Trenches” at the behest of Rockstar Games.

Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of Rockstar Games, cracked down on the use of cryptocurrencies and NFTs in Grand Theft Auto. Lil Durk’s OTF Gaming got a legal warning and took down “The Trenches” server.

OTF Gaming said in a statement: “We have no option but to comply with their wishes as we want to do right by Take-Two and Rockstar”. “We will be working with them to find an amicable solution to this issue.”

The previous week, Rockstar Games and Take-Two banned crypto and NFTs in Grand Theft Auto role-play servers. Lil Durk earlier cooperated with Exceed Talent Capital to sell NFTs and loot boxes for his role-play server. The “Trenches All-Access Pass” gave fans instant server access and loot boxes – for a price.

Take-Two’s policy prohibits servers such as Lil Durk’s from engaging in “commercial exploitation, involving the sale of ‘loot boxes’ for real-world currency or its in-game equivalent. Besides, it outlaws “the sale of virtual currency, generating revenue through sponsorships or in-game integration, or the use of cryptocurrencies or crypto assets (such as NFTs).”
