Atari, the gaming giant, has announced that holders of its “Atari” token will be able to spend it on betting, gaming, and shopping.
On June 12, it has been reported the new offerings for Atari token holders follow a partnership with esports firm Unikrn.
However, with the partnership, Unikrn will get access to Atari’s classic games such as Centipede, Pong, and Asteroids. On the other hand, Atari will get access to the firm’s esports betting platform and will see its token added to its ecosystem.
The report said that Atari’s token will be available for use on Unikrn’s shopping, betting, and gaming services.
Rahul Sood, the co-founder of Unikrn and former CEO of Microsoft Ventures, explained:
“We know the wagering will be an increasingly driving force in the game industry’s future development, and we can’t wait to get the benefits of this partnership to Unikrn’s community.”
Thus, after Atari developed and launched video games in the 70s and 80s, the firm is now betting on the application of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies to the gaming industry.
