Ubisoft announced they are launching a new system to bring NFTs to in-game, purchasable items. Apparently, they have addressed the climate controversy around NFTs by selecting the more energy-efficient Tezos blockchain. Gamers, what are your thoughts on this?

Ubisoft's first batch of Digits will launch with "limited editions" - of a fixed number of in-game digital items - for the company's game Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint, on Thursday. They can be paid for with crypto-currency, but only in the launch countries of USA, Canada, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Australia and Brazil.
Many games - especially free-to-play ones such as the popular Fortnite or Warzone titles - make a large chunk of their money through selling in-game cosmetic items or "skins" that change the look of characters or items.
Ubisoft is applying the NFT technology to this game mechanic, and calling its overall ecosystem "Quartz".
NFTs are always unique in some way, but in-game cosmetics are identical for every player who gets a copy. Ubisoft's solution is to put a unique serial number on these digital items.
