We are aware of a recent auction that was tied to a Roblox creator’s intellectual property and are conducting an internal review of what occurred on and off of the platform. Once we have concluded our review, we will resolve it with the developer.
As a global platform, we must consider the full impact of off-platform behavior and how it ties, whether directly or indirectly, to the Roblox platform. Please bear with us while we conduct a full review of our policies and ensure that they are up-to-date with new developments in the market.
I wonder, if Roblox were to disallow purchasing something off site (ex. NFTs) and getting something in return in a Roblox game, would this fall into other conditions such as Pet Sim toy codes (they’re not manufactured by Roblox) or Discord server boosts
Wondering if disallowing NFTs would straight up cause a domino effect to other things like these.
Although, shouldn’t this be clearly against TOS? Off-site trading/buying for items for a in-game item should be against TOS, right? Roblox also isn’t getting their 30% cut (like all the developers acknowledge), while off-site it takes (I believe) less. If this is somehow accepted and allowed, then every developer will just put on sale in-game items on off-sites.
“it’s breaking the ToS” is irrelevant if they revise their policies as you mentioned.
“harmful to the environment” so are gas cars
“basically a scam” the ones in pet sim are not a scam, the users receive the pets in game
Thanks for taking action! I really do hope this shows why nfts are not good in cases like this. (Edit: From seeing how roblox may change their policies on nfts, I just think nfts being allowed would be too controversial in a bad way)
