Several gaming giants have expressed interest in integrating cryptocurrencies, or NFTs, into their titles. EA CEO Calls Blockchain Games “future of our industrySquare Enix experimented with NFTs Sale of a set attached to its Million Arthur online card game And plans to integrate the technology into more of its games, CEO of Take-Two Interactive, which publishes Grand Theft Auto, said that they have a “great faith” in the digital ownership afforded by NFTs, But with Digit’s integration into Ghost Recon Breakpoint, a AAA game that’s part of a major franchise, Ubisoft is diving deeper into blockchain technology than any major gaming company before.

To aid its NFT ambitions, Ubisoft has set up a platform called Quartz. This is where players will be able to shield their NFTs – for which you’ll need a digital wallet like MetaMask. Points will be free to mint (for now), but you’ll need to meet certain criteria in order to earn the rights. To gain access to any of the points unveiled by Ubisoft on Tuesday, you need to be at least level 5 in the Ghost Recon breakpoint. Once all available points have been claimed, the only way to score them would be to buy them from another player.

Once you own an NFT, you’ll be able to use it in-game like any other item. If you want to sell or swap it out, you can do so through a secondary market – like buying a device in real life and selling it on eBay. OpenSea, currently the largest NFT market, will not be eligible to host Ubisoft’s points, as OpenSea does not currently support NFTs on the Tezos blockchain.

Ubisoft is implementing some restrictions on its points. Each wallet would be restricted to holding only one of each point, a measure that would prevent wealthy players from purchasing the entire supply of rare points. Only players over the age of 18 using Ubisoft’s Connect PC client will be eligible to turn off Quartz.

The second is the advent of “earning to play” (P2E) games, where playing and completing tasks earn you a cryptocurrency that can be used to make purchases within that game’s ecosystem – or bitcoin and more.
