Ubisoft Unveils NFTs

Shortly after revealing plans to explore the role blockchain technology can play in games, Ubisoft unveils Ubisoft Quartz, a place to acquire Ubisoft NFTs called Digits. To start, digits are only available for Ghost Recon: Breakpoint players, and the first three are being handed out for free. Here's an accompanying Announce Trailer and here's the overview:
Ubisoft Quartz is a new experience for our players, built upon our vision of creating an ever-greater connection between you and the game worlds you love.

It aims at offering you more autonomy and agency when interacting with the in-game items that help you craft your own story.

This is the place where you can acquire Digits, the first Ubisoft NFTs (non-fungible tokens), playable in a HD game and relying on an energy-efficient technology.

I can't think of what adding NFTs to a games cash shop or loot crates is going to be profitable for Ubi.

Loot crates and cash shops are all about whales chasing digital models and pixels that are worthless out side of the game. These things are already non-trade-able. What does NFT add?

Perhaps Ubi has thought of a way to use an NFT operation to cook their own books even more.

That's what their video hints at, and what I was saying, Ubisoft wants to set up their own version of the Steam Marketplace, where Steam runs the store, and takes a percentage of each 'sale' or 'transfer' or whatever of each transaction that takes place. Valve makes bank off of CS:GO skins for example, Ubisoft wants the same revenue stream, but apparently with more steps? Aside from the buzzword usage there doesn't seem to be much actual benefit to Ubisoft if these skins are NFTs or not, as long as Ubisoft can harvest %5 or whatever on each trade that happens on the store they are going to set up.

I hope that they run afoul of the same legal issues Blizzard had with Diablo 3's real money store, etc. I think the EU has stronger restrictions against this sort of thing? Hopefully Ubisoft gets sued before this thing really gets rolling.
