LEAKED: Microsoft is Launching An Xbox Crypto Wallet 👀

Heard that. “Leaked” docs Microsoft's plans for crypto wallet integration with Xbox.

Leaked on purpose or not, it appears that Microsoft plans to integrate a crypto wallet into the next version of the Xbox console.

The Future of Xbox, revealed:

  • The leak also includes plans for a new disc-less Xbox Series X, a gyro controller, and a next-gen hybrid Xbox.

  • Microsoft has not officially announced its plans for crypto wallet integration, but the leak suggests that the company is serious about exploring the possibility.

Other Microsoft crypto news

  • Microsoft is rumored to be working on integrating a non-custodial Ethereum wallet into its Edge browser.

  • In February, Microsoft partnered with Ankr to provide a node hosting service on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace to support enterprises and organizations that need access to blockchain data.

  • In August, Microsoft partnered with Aptos Labs to create an AI chatbot called Aptos Assistant to help simplify onboarding new users into Web3.

TLDR; Microsoft is doubling down in crypto/blockchain. A crypto wallet integration with Xbox could supercharge a $76 billion in-game microtransaction market, open up new gaming experiences, and facilitate digital asset ownership.
