Dr. Disrespect is putting more effort into blockchain games, even though most people don’t like this technology and a lot of his fans keep criticizing it. The streamer is mostly known for his outspoken personality and bombastic appearances on Twitch and YouTube, especially while playing popular battle royale games like Apex Legends, Fortnite, PUBG: Battlegrounds, and different Call of Duty games.
On June 26, 2020, the streamer was kicked off Twitch. The platform didn’t say much about why the user was banned, only that they had broken their rules. At the time, Dr. Disrespect said he didn’t know why, but on August 23, 2021, he said he had known why for months and was going to take legal action.
On March 10, 2022, Dr. Disrespect and Twitch said that they had worked out their disagreement. Dr. Disrespect went on to say that he wouldn’t be coming back to Twitch because he was now doing well on YouTube, where he had more than 4 million subscribers as of December 31, 2022.
During the fight with Twitch in December 2021, Dr. Disrespect announced the launch of his triple-A gaming studio, Midnight Society. Midnight Society’s main goal is to make online multiplayer games that use blockchain technology.
The Current Focus Of The Studio Is Project Moon
Project Moon, the current focus of the studio, has been criticized for the way it uses NFTs. The official description says, “Midnight Society is a new kind of triple-A game studio and publishing model that has been in the works for over a decade.” “We are a group of ambitious game industry veterans who see a future where developers don’t make experiences in a vacuum and players share in a game’s success.”
The tweet below confirms the news:
Before, fans and followers of the content creator criticized him for promoting different blockchain games while streaming and on social media. Many of them said that the streamer was promoting a product that was bad for the environment and could make wealth inequality in the gaming community worse.
This made the content creator pull away from the technology, at least for a little while. Dr. Disrespect recently tweeted about this subject and said that blockchain games are the way of the future.
“Imagine trying to ‘extract’ with something you found on the chain that was worth $100,000,” Dr. Disrespect wrote on Twitter. “Think about how fun it would be to watch, let alone play.” The person who made the content went on to say, “A new PvP experience is coming.” Dr. Disrespect later said, “I’m so excited about the idea of digital collectibles in an online game.
Especially a game where you have to get something. People who say “scam” and “ugh” are just following the headlines. Some people who spend a lot of money on skins for a game that comes out once a year. Everyone has the same skin, too.”
The technology was briefly very popular in the games industry because it could make transactions and ownership of items more secure and clear. However, many people soon started to criticize blockchain games, citing worries about how they might affect the environment, among other things.
The gaming community has had mixed reactions to Dr. Disrespect’s recent comments, with a few of his fans showing their support for the streamer. On the other hand, it seems like most of his followers are still not sure about the situation. “NFTs are a scam,” a fan said on Twitter, for example. “I wish you luck, but I think this is a rough way to go.”
