    Ubisoft Quartz’s Ghost Recon NFTs Appear To Have Made Just $400 Total

    Well, everyone sure did not seem to be on board with Ubisoft Quartz and its blockchain-based NFTs for Ghost Recon Breakpoint, a series of limited edition cosmetics that could be claimed in the game. But at least for now, it appears that it isn’t just gamers who don’t really care about them, it’s NFT collectors as well.
    As pointed out by Apex Legends Senior Character Artist Liz Edwards on Twitter, the entire market for resold Ghost Recon Breakpoint NFTs appears to be just…$400 total.

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    @longjohn119 That is fantastic news. May Ubisoft soon abandon NFTs altogether and regret the time and money they spent implementing them.

    Ubisoft Boss Tells Employees That NFTs Are Just The Beginning

    Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot held a video Q&A this week to try and reassure developers about the company’s controversial new push behind NFTs, according to multiple sources who were in attendance. But they said his answers were vague and leaned on buzzwords like “metaverse” and “web 3.0,” leaving some as disheartened by the company’s latest PR disaster as before.

    The meeting, which sources said wasn’t yet scheduled when the week started, came after the official reveal of Ubisoft’s new blockchain-based technology called Quartz was widely mocked online, with a video showcasing it receiving over 40,000 downvotes on YouTube. Kotaku previously reported that developers at the company were critical of the rollout as well, with an internal announcement exploding in hundreds of comments that ranged from skeptical to dismissive.

    Inside the Ubisoft Paris studio, which makes Breakpoint, some developers are worried about a game they spent years rehabilitating after a disastrous 2019 launch having its reputation dragged back through the mud just so the company can stake its claim on the latest speculative tech fad. Indeed, according to a recent Ubisoft community report reviewed by Kotaku, the announcement of Quartz led to an unprecedented negative swing in player sentiment about the live-service open-world shooter.

    @longjohn119 Wow... using buzzwords like metaverse and web 3.0!? Yikes!

    If Ubsisoft unseats it's CEO and puts someone in the chair who has a real vision for the company instead of copying the latest social media vomit, I'll buy some Ubi stock.

    @thenorfolkian It's the same type of CEO/MBA ignorance of technology that caused the DotCom crash in the late 90's .... Lot's of buzz words used back then that overvalued all Internet/Tech stocks .... And then Reality struck and everything sank to it's true value based on actual Assets

    I expect the same thing with happen with Crypto and NFTs in the future because they have no real hard assets to back up their value .... 1's and 0's have no real intrinsic value as an Asset

    Money also has no real hard assets to back up their value.

    If the rich people of the world suddenly decide to buy something with all their money....they simply won't be able to do that.
    Because there're no so many goods.

    Most of the money is just soap bubbles.
    Nothing is backing up their value.

    One day all this will collapse!


    Collapse is coming......



    Great Economic Crisis.
    Crisis of Capitalism.


    Too much money.
    It creates disballance.

    Too much money carriers. Too much nouveau riche.
    "Old money" families started hunting the "new money"
    It's called Anti-Laundering.

    Cryptocurrency is the way to escape it.
    Crypto - is nothing but gold for the poor.

    Anti-Laundering and Cryptocurrency - cadaverous spots on the body of Capitalism.

    The ending will start soon. The Agony.
    2023-2025.


    Ubi.....



    Before that you have to grow and grow, generating more and more money.
    Everything that contribute to this is good.

    But at the right moment you'll need to react correctly.
    For not to find yourself without nothing.

    Oh Yves, when your time of CEO will change...?
    Because we don't want call like CEO of Eternity...

    (This word is likely offended to him...)


    @longjohn119 Yeah, I agree w/ that, even w/ fail of NFT of Ubi, I expect them not giving up and just keep going as it were nothing significant happen, just like the [DATA EXPUNGED] Frontlines fiasco thing.
    Oh, and the latest news is no one is going to buy NFT's rn

    @longjohn119 I sometimes think back to those days and how ahead of their time some of those companies were. Amazon is literally doing what Webvan innovated, Pets.com was basically what Chewy became, Paypal survived and eventually started doing what Flooz failed to do, and so on.

    The video game industry is undergoing a remarkable change at the moment, much like how home game consoles and personal PCs challenged the supremacy of the arcade industry, but rather than the stark shift that causes companies to straight up go out of business, this change will simply evolve gaming. Arcades are still around and very popular for obvious reasons that consoles, PCs, and VR have not been able to emulate. For that same reasoning, I believe that minimalist hard copy gaming and disconnected solo and party gaming will survive streaming platforms and multiplayer online or internet-based personal gaming.

    My point being... Ubisoft will very likely survive the coming financial apocalypse that approaches, but they could avoid some damage by not jumping on every unproven new thing that looks popular in the moment. However, I’m surprised that purchasing game content with crypto hasn’t become a thing yet... but it’s for the best.

    @gameguru2018 Horse Hockey .....

    The US has the leading currency in the world and the reason for that is the Private and Public Assets of the US are MASSIVE. Places like NYC or LA alone are worth $10's or $100's of trillions

    Crypto basically has no backing assets other than the Blockchain IP but that IP just isn't worth all that much, maybe a few billion at most

    From the Kotaku article "The Biggest Gaming Disappointments Of 2021"

    NFTs are born, immediately infect gaming

    2021 continued the trend of proving that the future will suck. No cool flying cars or amazing spaceships; instead, our future is filled with celebs and tech bros destroying the planet via the selling and buying of hyperlinks to crappy cartoon apes. I truly wish that sentence made no sense. But sadly, this is the future in which we now live. And worse, NFT assholes are digging up graves and using dead folks like Bob Ross to hawk their scammy tokens. Even video game publishers and devs are jumping onboard the awful trend, with Ubisoft releasing helmets and guns for Ghost Recon Breakpoint that are tied into an NFT ecosystem. Thankfully, nobody seems to care about those. But with folks like Will Wright and Peter Molyneux running to mint money from the NFT bubble, it’s a sure, sad bet that ever more blockchain [censored] will pop up on your timeline in 2022.

    @longjohn119 Thinking back to older games... imagine if the concept of NFTs had infected MMORPGs in the 1990s. Early games like Neverwinter Nights, Meridian 59, Ultima Online, and Everquest would have likely been plagued with different attempts at acquiring custom gear items, tagged with the player’s ID or subscription account. It probably would have succeeded back then... and I bet companies like Blizzard and Bethesda would have no compunction about implementing such mechanics when WoW and ESO launched.

    True to my words, looks like Ubi is continue NFT that no one asked despited the outcry: (https://decrypt.co/88880/after-backlash-ubisoft-calls-gaming-nfts-a-major-change-that-will-take-time) (Even employee amongst themselves)

    When you buy natural resources in other countries you use your Private and Public Assets?
    You exchange these resources and cheap labour for an equivalent product?

    Or you exchange it for your candy wrappers?
    (Most part of which....have no real assets behind)

    And Only You can print these wrappers.

    And you print it and print......



    print it and print...


    Buying and exhchanging truly valuable goods and products for these bubbles.

    Of course, no one will be able to boost their economy like you.
    Even your closest allies.

    If someone dares to object there is a Military Force for that.


    Remind you of anything?



    Only necklace today are green.

    This is nothing but Robbery.
    You're robbing the whole world.

    @gameguru2018 So you think creating a bunch of 1's and 0's out of thin air with no Hard Assets to back any of it up isn't robbery and a complete and utter scam?

    All you are showing is ignorance in how currency works ..... I give you a dollar and it is backed up by Hard Assets and you can use that dollar to buy other Hard Assets .... If the Dollar were ever to go into default you'd still get your value back because of the Hard Assets backing it can be sold .... If Crypto goes into default you have NOTHING, because there are no Hard Assets to sell other than the Blockchain IP which really isn't worth all that much .... This is why no one has ever lost so much as a single penny investing in US Debt Bonds and why every nation and retirement fund in the world invests in the US Debt because they know they are guaranteed a return and while it may not be as high of a return as Stocks and other Bonds you won't lose a single penny unlike with Stocks and Bonds where losses happen all the time

    Crypto is really no different that the Derivatives Scams that brought down the entire World Economy back in 2008 ..... And like Derivatives Crypto will basically crash to the level of the Assets backing it up ... Luckily Crypto is still basically a drop in a bucket compared to Derivatives which created between $700 and $800 Trillion in Debt when they crashed .... Currently Crypto is only worth about $3 trillion so it won't take down entire Economies when it crashes, just hurt the people who invested in it

    No they aren't. If you believe that, try to find a buyer.

    Who told you that a dollar is backed up by Hard Assets, 100%???

    If it was so there would be no crisis of capitalism!


    That's the point that the whole world is floodded with these bubbles.
    Worthless candy wrappers that have no real value behind.

    The world is big but not endless.
    You can't pouring bubbles out of your country into the world forever!

    Because of all capitalistic machinations and speculations this Big Bubble expands and bursts.

    At some point in time that mass becomes critical and everything starts going to Hell.


    In the past, the colonizers gave the natives glass necklace in exchange for valuable goods and land.
    Worthless glass necklace.

    Today you're giving to the whole world green candy wrappers.
    The same worthless junk.
    But you don't exchange it for another worthless junk. You exchange it for something really valuable.

    All US economic power rests on these bubbles.
    "Leading currency".

    It rests on fraud.

    @gameguru2018 Actually the story about the Dutch and Manhattan is mostly a myth especially the BS about the beads. What they got were iron tools, knives, pots, etc. ..... Just for the record I'm a member of a Federally Recognized Indian Nation and am half Dakotah Sioux so save the old Soviet Communist Propaganda about my People, I ain't buying it ..... Besides that wasn't Americans that did that, it was White Europeans from the Netherlands , the US didn't even exist for another 150 years so your Whataboutism Propaganda falls flat

    Actually it was the Indians that's screwed the Dutch, they got a bunch of stuff in return for land they didn't even own, it belonged to another Indian Nation

    As far as I know, socialist bloc was very positive about native americans.



    They were portrayed heroically and tragically.

    Natives vs Colonizers.
    Something like - Primal Communism vs Capitalism.

    "Communist propaganda".....
    Today there is a saying in post-communist countries - "Growing up, the Communists told us how horrible capitalism was. When Capitalism came we realized they were lying. It was so much worse than they were telling us."

    That's the point - that commies don't need propaganda.
    All they need to say as it is.


    Crisis of Capitalism, money printing is also communist propaganda?

    And this must also be communist propaganda.....




    He is saint in his truth-telling 🤣

    He is like face of capitalism. Just honest capitalist.

    "We need your oil" (without fairy-tales about democratization)
    "We'll build a wall"
    "Sh-thole countries..."
    "America will never be a socialist country"

    What are the other politicians have on their mind he has on his tongue.

    No one exposes capitalism more than Trump.
    The rest are only falsely pretending.

    And, yes, US prints money.....




    As for NFT......

    For an ordinary person it doesn't matter what bubbles to use. Green, yellow or blue.
    If I can buy with this bubbles what I need....What's the difference?!

    But bubbles are bubbles.
    Bubbles tend to burst.

    This should always be remembered.
    You always need to have escape routs.

    Just remember tulipmania in Holland.
    The bubble burst and many were left with nothing.
    But..........

    Some made a lot of money on that.

    If something happens.....Ubisoft should be among those who "made a lot of money on that."
    Not among those who "were left with nothing."





    People are making big money on videocards.

    Let it be your games, Ubisoft!

    Let them make money on your games!
    And be Beneficiary!

    Let them earn and earn yourself.

    Start this moneymaking Flywheel!

    @gameguru2018 It's not positive when you are telling lies like the Manhattan Myth which had NOTHING to do with Americans anyway, it was Dutch Europeans not Americans, Jamestown and the Pilgrim were English ..... And don't even get me started on the frigging Catholic Spaniards who were the worst of all by far .... The only European nation that treated the American Indians halfway decent were the French ...... I'm old enough to remember when the Communist Stooges came to the reservations in the 70's trying to get American Indians onboard and it was soundly rejected ..... "Primal Communism" my butt, that's just a really good example of the Propaganda I already called you out on ..... If you think American Indians had it bad look how the Indigenous People of Asia faired under the Soviet Communist Regime ..... Or under the Chinese Communist Regime

    BTW the picture you posted is offensive because that's not an American Indian, it's an actor with Italian heritage and the Halloween style costumes they are wearing aren't the least bit authentic

    Go clean up your own backyard before you go messing with mine .....
