Ubisoft Launches Playable NFTs in Gaming Experiment

Ubisoft is going where no major gaming company has gone before — NFTs. 

Gaming is one of the top use cases for the blockchain, but developers have struggled to get their crypto-based games into the mainstream. 

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) have begun to change the narrative, given their broad appeal, and could be the catalyst that hastens the wide-scale adoption of crypto. And gaming giant Ubisoft could help it get there. 

Ubisoft has launched Ubisoft Quartz, which houses Digits, the company's “energy-efficient NFTs playable in a AAA game to Ghost Recon: Breakpoint.” 

Digits are issued on Tezos, a self-proclaimed “energy-efficient and self-upgradable Proof of Stake blockchain with an average energy footprint of 17 global citizens.” 

The sustainable nature of the NFTs could be a major draw, given the criticisms against Bitcoin, in particular, for the energy-intensive mining process to create new coins.
