Op Ed

  • Ars Technica - Ubisoft’s first NFT plans make no sense.
    "But marketing rare or unique in-game items—and letting players resell them—isn't a new thing. Ubisoft doesn't need NFTs or "the blockchain" to enable this kind of artificially scarce digital collectible; a basic centrally controlled database could do the same thing much more simply."

Ubisoft probably feels it is being "young and hip" and keeping in touch.

Instead they are "how do you do, fellow kids?"
They are just inventing a collector's market with NFTs. Old fucks like us case about collecting and nostalgia... this is just an effort to get kids into that revenue stream.

This. All I hear at work now is that we have to integrate blockchain into our services, somehow, because … reasons. Doesn’t matter if there are much better and simpler solutions because…blockchain.

Correct, very few real world applications need blockchain or NFT bullshit.

Ubisoft is mostly doing this for the marketing, and the slavering madmen buying up every new crypto coin and NFT that comes out each day.

Fixed that title for you Ars.
I'm a smoldering volcano of virility. At least, that's what I tell myself.
