Ubisoft, a French gaming company, has created Rabbids Token, a system that allows users to donate Etherium (ETH) directly to UNICEF.
How Rabbids Token works
For this project, Ubisoft created 5 families of tokens, each with a different image and price ranging between 0.05 ETH and 0.15 ETH.
These tokens do not remain inside the wallet, which means that the user does not buy the cryptocurrency itself, but only keeps it for a limited time, while another user does not want to buy it.
In this case, the token leaves the wallet of the previous owner, who still has a POPO (Proof of Credible Ownership), and passes into the hands of the next buyer.
In addition, these tokens have a mutation mechanism, at least in the arrangement proposed by the platform, precisely to mimic the diversity that exists in the game from which this initiative is inspired, ie. Rabbids, in which the characters are different and elusive.
As has been said, this initiative aims to raise funds, which will then be donated to the UNICEF E- mail address and thus avoid the whole ‘pointless process’ of having a fundraising intermediary.
UNICEF and crypto
UNICEF have not recently been in the blockchain and crypto space, as they have already set up several portals and collaborations, for example with the foundation behind Litecoin, and can now boast of accepting 9 different crypto assets, including Bitcoin (BTC), Etherium ), several ERC20 tokens, Lightcoin (LTC), Ripple ( XRP ), DAI, Dash , Monero (XMR), EOS and Stellar (XLM).
Ubisoft and the world of blockchain games
For its part, Ubisoft is always trying to keep up with the times, and thanks to the Laboratory for Strategic Innovation it is trying to predict the future and be active in the blockchain sector.
Ubisoft actually funds various startups, including important names such as immersiv.io, Splinterlands, Planetarium, Xaya, Caregame, Atlantis, Sorare and Sky Mavis, all of which are games that in one way or another integrate blockchain technology, such as the aforementioned partnership with Ultra.
