According to an unconfirmed gaming industry leak, Grand Theft Auto 6 is rumored to feature a working stock market, brokerages, and cryptocurrencies that will be earned by players of the game throughout the game’s various missions.
According to the rumors, Grand Theft Auto VI will feature fictional cryptocurrency in-game that users can earn throughout the story. Rockstar Games is known for incorporating culture in its games, so it should come as no surprise if the game company was actually working on this. However, according to the leak, the game developers won’t favor Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Instead, the leak states that various cryptocurrencies will be sued by some characters within the game to “transfer large amounts of untraceable money.”
Tom Henderson a well-known leaker inside the gaming industry stated on Twitter that he “heard recently” that GTA 6 will feature cryptocurrency in its game. According to Henderson, players of the game will be able to earn “bitcoin instead of cash” in some missions. He further went on to say that players of the game would interact with characters that seek to transfer large and untraceable amounts of money. Although, first impressions indicate that Rockstar is painting cryptocurrency in a negative light Hender said that, he believed that “if Rockstar does this right, it could be huge for crypto.”
I heard recently that in GTA 6, some missions will reward you in bitcoin instead of cash for completing some missions.
The stock market feature will return, with the addition of a broker for different cryptocurrencies. If GTA 6 incorporates this right, it's huge for crypto.

Henderson also claimed that the crypto would be able to be traded on the stock market. Typically, Rockstar doesn’t use real brands or companies inside its controversial Grand Theft Auto series. So the cryptocurrency available within the game will likely be a parody of Bitcoin and/or other popular crypto assets. However, as digital assets are decentralized with no corporate body to sue for trademark infringement, Rockstar could indeed select Bitcoin or any other digital asset and use its like namesake as well as its logo.
Bitcoin is currently trading at [FIAT: $35,226.77] DOWN -4.4% in the last 24 hours according to Coingecko at the time of this report.
