Alleged leaks suggest GTA 6 might have use bitcoin as in-game currency instead of regular cash. These alleged leaks come from prominent leaker and YouTuber Tom Henderson.


The leaks by Henderson suggest by completing some missions, players will get bitcoin as a reward instead of cash and players will be able to trade bitcoin through the stock market feature. The stock market feature was one of the well-known features of GTA 5 where players were able to buy and sell stocks of companies that are in the game and earn money for missions. Leaker says the stock market feature will return in GTA 6 and there will be a broker for trading different cryptocurrencies.


Henderson clarified on Twitter “Just so there's no confusion, I mean in-game payments of bitcoin. These payments will come from the more higher up characters that needs to transfer high amounts of "untraceable cash and fast" Henderson further explained “Just so there's even less confusion - I'm not joking. This is what I heard from a someone that I trust and it will likely not be called "Bitcoin" per say - But it will be a cryptocurrency.”


Henderson was previously known for leaking an accurate internal Battlefield 6 video. For this leak, Henderson has not given anything to back his claim. All these rumors and leaks should be taken with a grain of salt as every month there are countless rumors, leaks, reports in circulation. Even Henderson in his tweet thread said" Always take info like this with a bit of salt :)"
