Ubisoft Quartz: New energy-efficient and playable NFTs!

Hey Ghosts, The Ubisoft Strategic Innovation Lab has been working on a breakthrough initiative that will be coming to Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon® Breakpoint on the Ubisoft Connect PC version on December 9 for an initial beta phase.

This new experience, Ubisoft Quartz, aims at offering you more autonomy and agency when interacting with a new kind of in-game item. Those items are named Digits and they are the first energy-efficient and playable NFTs available for a Ubisoft HD game.

DIGITS ARE UNIQUE TO YOU AND HAVE THEIR OWN STORY!

  • Serial Numbers Every single Digit features a serial number. This serial number is displayed on the collectible and on the in-game item.

  • Player Names Each Digit will also be tied to the player names of all its previous and current owners…your fame will be linked to it for years to come!

  • Limited Editions Each Digit is released as part of an Edition that is composed of a fixed and immutable number of items.

PUT YOUR DIGITS ON SALE WHENEVER YOU WANT Traditionally, items you purchase from an in-game store are bound to your game account. Digits take things a step further by giving you more control than ever!

While they are first and foremost playable items, Digits enable you to put your items on sale to other eligible players, whenever you want and at the price you decide. Similarly, you can purchase new items directly from other players.

All these transactions will take place on the authorized third-party platforms rarible.com or objkt.com, not on the Ubisoft Quartz website.


CHECK OUT THE FIRST DIGITS! THE FIRST THREE EDITIONS ARE FREE FOR YOU TO CLAIM!

The first Digits will be free!

Remember that each Digit is released as part of an Edition that is composed of an immutable number of items. First come, first served, so don’t miss it!

Drops on December 12 and 15 will be dedicated to our most passionate players. Stay tuned for more news.

Create your wallet on the Quartz website and make sure to be there for the release of a new edition on December 9 , 12, and 15 at 6 PM UTC to claim your Digit.

Energy Efficient

Energy Efficient: Digits are the first Ubisoft NFTs, playable in an HD game and stored on the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) blockchain Tezos. Compared to the Proof-of-Work protocol used with Bitcoin, the PoS protocol offers a more advanced and energy-efficient alternative. PoS blockchains work on a consensus mechanism that does not rely on complex computational efforts to validate transactions and therefore does not incentivize extreme amounts of energy consumption.
