It has been reported that players will be able to acquire dynamic NFTs called “Digits” on Quartz that will be used in Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy Ghost Recon Breakpoint game. Players can use Digits in-game and can also put them on sale on Rarible and Objkt marketplaces for others to buy. The metadata and the history of the item will be publicly available.
However, Aleph.im’s technology enables players to see the names and achievements of previous item owners, as well as item descriptions and videos. The advantages of Aleph.im’s system includes securely storing the NFT metadata on a fully decentralized storage network of over 70 nodes, allowing all NFT ownership to be tracked on the Tezos blockchain.
The report said that Ubisoft and Aleph.im claim they are working together to challenge traditionally static NFTs and enable the creation of dynamic NFTs with metadata that evolves as they transfer from player to player.
Didier Genevois, the Blockchain Technical Director at Ubisoft, said that players need to actually own their Digit in order to fulfill the technology’s promise.
“Aleph.im’s role was key in building this experiment by allowing us to decentralize the storage of the Digits’ video asset and metadata.”
Thus, the Ghost Reckon community was not entirely happy with what they deemed a “cash grab.” Ubisoft’s response is to pivot to dynamic NFTs with the help of Aleph.im to ease their players’ concerns.
