NFT announcement video delisted by Ubisoft as its disliked on YouTube
Ubisoft’s launch video for its new NFT service, Quartz, has been taken down from YouTube after collecting more than 15,466 dislikes in the past several weeks. Only those who have a link to the video will be able to see it. It’s not the first time the trailer has been re-posted on various channels.
According to the trailer’s like to dislike ratios, only 4% of people were pleased with the announcement.
Using a numbers system, gamers will be able to purchase in-game cosmetics in Ghost Recon Breakpoint, the first game to implement NFTs. In addition to granting access to in-game cosmetic items, purchasing a digit generates a serial number that may be seen in-game.
There will also be Digits that are only available in a limited number and are either more expensive or more difficult to obtain. Digits can also be sold outside of the Ubisoft ecosystem by players.
“Digits are a new way to experience cosmetic items, combining the fun of playing with AAA quality assets and the thrill of owning NFTs that represent unique, collectible pieces of Ubisoft game worlds.”
The corporation also sees this as the foundation for a bigger metaverse, which seems to be the mantra for most brands these days.. Ubisoft claims Quartz will run on a Tezos blockchain that consumes less power than the competition.
