Ultra, a renowned Web3 gaming firm, is ready to launch its Ultra Games marketplace, featuring a unique feature that allows gamers to resell their previously purchased digital games. The marketplace, which is based on the Ultra layer-1 network, and is a fork of the EOS blockchain, has been under development since 2018. It has since grown its ecosystem with additional features such as the Ultra Wallet, Ultra Arena esports platform, and Uniq Marketplace for NFTs.
The Uniq Marketplace allows the reselling of games through tokenized license rights, which could provide publishers with additional revenue sources. Game studios could create a no-resale period, set a minimum price point, and determine an automatic royalty percentage, according to Nicolas Gilot, Ultra’s Co-CEO.
Ultra Games will allow users who are not acquainted with Web3 to sign up using their phone numbers and email addresses. Wallet addresses and other cryptographic elements will be hidden behind a Web2 interface, but users can access them if necessary. The platform will also not charge any fees for network gas when users transact.
The Ultra Gaming marketplace’s forthcoming launch promises gamers a solution for their long-standing demand for a resale feature for their digital games. This feature could be a huge win for gamers who have spent considerable amounts on their games, with no hope of recovering their investment. It could also provide game developers with a new revenue stream, which could benefit the entire gaming industry.
