For better or for worse, NFTs have captured the interest of the industry. We recently informed you about the decisions of Konami and GameStop regarding this world, and although the response of the general public it is perceived negative, Ubisoft Quartz will not stop its efforts and Square Enix has seen its shares grow on the stock market. Now it’s up to SEGA take a new step, because although it already announced its entry into the NFT last summer, it seems that it could rethink your decision.
