Google has announced new rules for its Play Store that will allow and regulate blockchain-based games and apps. The tech giant aims to provide developers with clear guidelines for integrating Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) into their Android games. The full completion of the new policies is expected to take place by the end of the year.

 

Transparency and User Awareness

 

Under the updated policy Google will require apps to be transparent with users about tokenized digital assets. This includes disclosing the game’s blockchain-based status on the Google Play Store content page . If any products within Android games have matching NFTs then developers must clearly communicate this information to users.

Unlocking Content with NFTs

 

Google will allow NFTs to unlock content within apps regardless of where the user purchased the NFT. This sets Google apart from its main competitor Apple as it does not permit this feature. However Google’s policies disallow the promotion or glamorization of cryptocurrency or NFT trading activities . Developers must also ensure compliance with Google’s rules on real money gambling and contests.

 

Limitations on Wagering and Gambling Mechanics

 

While developers can offer in-game NFTs to enhance the user experience NFTs cannot be betted and sweepstakes will not be allowed. Google’s policy prohibits any wagering or gambling mechanics unless the developer meets the gambling eligibility requirements that are set by Google . NFTs purchased by users must be consumed or used in-game for progression purposes and should not be exchanged for the opportunity to win prizes of real-world monetary value.

 

Gradual Implementation and Collaborations

Google’s rules for blockchain gaming will be implemented gradually with changes expected to take effect by the end of the summer. The company will collaborate with select game developers to test and refine the user experience for blockchain games . Mythical Games, the developer of NFL Rivals and Reddit are among the companies that are working with Google to improve policies on NFTs.
