Ubisoft announced Quartz, a service that allows players to obtain NFTs of in-game vehicles, weapons, and equipment.
Non-fungible tokens (NFTs), which Ubisoft calls “Numbers,” will be able to be bought, sold, and hoarded by players who want the token on their permanent profile.
To separate collectable “Digits” from Steam’s inventory system, Ubisoft explained that each set of Digits was released in limited numbers, each with its own certificate of title and serial number engraved on the in-game item.
Ubisoft was the first to implement this unsolicited service for Ghost Recon Breakpoint, which is very relevant given how utterly dire that game is. In our review it was said that Ghost Recon Break Point is a “boring and exploitative experience that puts parodies to shame.
To make it not sound terrible like a regular NFT, which consumes an amazing amount of power, Ubisoft has stated that Quartz will be “energy efficient” because it uses Tezos, a blockchain that uses “incredibly less energy to operate” than Bitcoin and Ethereum.
Thankfully, Quartz is not available in the UK, as currently only players in the US, Canada, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Australia and Brazil are being subjected to this cruel “test”.
