The Morning After: Ubisoft’s NFT Battles

It’s nice when the blockchain power is in balance. With the recent boom in NFT success stories (and millions of them), we have the other side of the coin. Ubisoft’s attempts to sell NFTs in connection with its Ghost Recon series of games didn’t go well. The game company launched its own Quartz NFT platform to monetize game features.

Unfortunately, according to Eurogamer, Quartz only sold 15 NFTs of a Ghost Recon Breakpoint weapon skin until yesterday. As of yesterday, it appears to have sold two more M4A1 tactical guns and a Wolf Enhance Pants # 76 for a total of 18. Based on their prices, that’s roughly $ 1,755.30 in sales. But Ubisoft seems to have coined roughly north of 3,000 NFTs in total. As many have noticed, Breakpoint doesn’t have the most seductive visual aesthetics – nor is it Ubisoft’s greatest trait – which makes it an odd choice to start Ubisoft’s NFT trials.

In other news, CES faces the Omicron threat and many companies are pulling out of the show in early January. Amazon, Meta, and some other big tech players will no longer be represented at the fair due to the spread of the latest COVID-19 variant. The Engadget team will also no longer participate in the show personally, but our remote coverage still ensures you get all the important information about the Las Vegas tech show.

It will never escape their incentives. It is ultimately a centralized entity with a different label. You know what you’re getting yourself into … “Dorsey is no longer CEO of Twitter and still runs a company that is heavily involved in blockchain technologies.

Researchers hacked a home COVID-19 test to give false results

The bug has been fixed, but it still shows the potential for fraud.

F-Secure researcher Ken Gannon discovered a security flaw in Ellume’s nasal swab test with Bluetooth connectivity that allowed him to modify the reported results. The vulnerability was complex, but still worrying. It has now been patched.

Gannon used a rooted Android device to examine the Bluetooth traffic that Ellume’s lateral flow tester was sending to the company’s mobile app. The researcher identified the traffic that was used to view test results and wrote scripts to modify the result. F-Secure Marketing Manager Alexandra Rinehimer even managed to fool Azova, a company that issues certificates for US entry tests.
