Atari to launch its own cryptocurrency later this month

Recommended Posts


The Atari Token will be available on Bitcoin.com Exchange starting October 29. Each token will be priced at 25 cents, with a hard cap of $1 million worth of coins initially being on offer.


"Our goal is to create a token for the videogame industry that is available to as many platforms and users as possible. We are continuously developing use cases, starting with networks of smart platforms, games, and casino games. We aim at gradually extending the reach of the Atari Token to other games and applications in the videogame industry."

Don't know what to say about this other than it feels incredibly unnecessary.

Maybe I have a closed mind...but not sure I see a point or use case for this ?

Atari must think they will be able to profit from this. They want to be the central bank of some kind of gaming cryptocurrency.
