A French union rates Ubisoft’s NFTs as “useless, expensive and not very ecological”



It seems like they’re talking about nothing other than NFTs, non-fungible tokens. In other words, digital elements with a pronounced exclusivity that can be sold to future owners. Ubisoft recently announced a project, Quartz based on blockchain technology what meets with criticism. In addition to users and some developers, the French trade union Solidaires Informatique has also joined the complaints. Despite the environmental promise made by the creators of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Far Cry 6, this site claims that the blockchain is “useless, expensive and deadly to ecology”.

Strong criticism of NFTs

In a statement posted on social media, Solidaires Informatique said: “Ubisoft has entered the blockchain and non-fungible token (NFT) market, a decision that has been widely criticized by our players since then does not mean any improvements or benefits to our games“They assure you. “Many of us in the company see it the same way and say that the blockchain is harmful, useless and without a future.”

According to this union, the NFT’s promises are speculation, quick trade, money laundering and crisis. So far, this technology has been used as a “simple store for the players”, but the blockchain does that. “Use energy inefficiently”. The statement also stated that Ubisoft Quartz was interviewed and reported internally to Ubisoft Paris.

“We don’t have any specific statistics, but on an internal Ubisoft forum, the NFT’s announcement received wide comments, with around 5% positive comments and the rest negative,” Marc Rutschelé of Solidaires Informatique told PC Gamer. “Yves Guillemot [CEO de Activision] held a video conference this morning in support of the NFT project. I’m not sure how many people attended the meeting, “but the union representative has assured that” some friends have checked and They found that only four were happy“.

Ubisoft Quartz has started its journey in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Breakpointalthough the intent is to extend it to the rest of the sagas.
