Ubisoft introduced their own NFTs called Digits in 2022

Ubisoft made its first foray into NFTs when it launched the Ubisoft Quartz platform last December. The company aims to provide its loyal player base with Digits, which were popularly known as Ubisoft NFTs. Digits are the first NFTs playable in AAA games and run on energy-efficient technology.

Each and every Digit is a high-quality asset and a unique, collectible piece of the Ubisoft world, created by using blockchain technology. Digits are developed by the Ubisoft Strategic Innovations Lab, Quartz was launched in beta with Ghost Recon Breakpoint for PC players on Ubisoft Connect. It is available only in selected countries.

Ubisoft had also faced a lot of criticism in their NFT ventures, the most notable one was that players felt these Digits were not backward-compatible and were only tied to one game. Another complaint that players had, was that they were worried the NFTs were not energy-efficient, even though Ubisoft promises energy efficiency.

Many people are still confused about the introduction of Cryptocurrency and NFTs. Many look at them as valuable investments, whereas others feel that they are very unstable assets to invest in. However, it can be said for sure that with our world becoming more connected every day, where these digital technologies are laying the groundwork for radical advancements in the gaming industry.
