These servers often drastically change the makeup of multiplayer gaming, allowing players to act out fantasies such as cops and robbers, plan online bank robberies, or form factions that rule parts of the game in an open world. That said, Rockstar and Take-Two have rules on these GTA RPG servers, including what they think about cryptocurrencies, NFTs, and loot boxes ending up there.
