Tezos will allow Ubisoft to reduce energy consumption
Ubisoft’s technical director has started its goal to reduce its global footprint. It uses Tezos, a proof-of-stake blockchain, to power its Ubisoft Quartz’s technology. The company has explained that this technology allows them to use less energy than proof-of-protocol systems while yielding similar results.
Tezos transactions are better for the environment because they amount to 39 seconds of video streaming. However, a transaction through Bitcoin amounts to a year of video streaming. Ubisoft is now making plans with Ultra, a distribution company, to utilize the UOS blockchain for its titles.
