CCP Games announced they are not currently interested in introducing NFTs and blockchain to EVE Online but the wording heavily implies the possibility of a different direction in the future.

EVE Online is one of those games that surpassed all expectations in their potential to be cash cows over a long period of time but that is not stopping the devs from looking into new avenues of accruing monetary wealth. Thankfully, those methods will exclude NFT and blockchain technology in the foreseeable future, according to the latest communication from the team.

In a post that was fairly lengthy, CCP Games announced they are currently not looking into implementing NFTs into the game but if you read the way those lines were written, it's easy to discern the company is interested in doing so. 

However, it appears that the overwhelmingly negative reception of the unnecessary systems that are infested with predatory actors managed to delay the implementation in EVE Online.

One interesting takeaway is that the post mentions the Tranquility server will focus on "building exciting new opportunities on top of the robust foundation that has been laid over the past two decades". Considering this sentence was added just after the statement that there are "no plans to add blockchain technology into EVE Online's global server Tranquility for the foreseeable future", it could be possible NFTs aren't coming in the next few years either.

Whatever the case, it's safe to assume the players will be relieved to hear no NFT schemes are coming their way for the time being.
