Atari has announced a collaboration with Unikrn to accelerate the Atari Token’s adoption by incorporation into the crypto-currency ecosystems of the latter.
Unikrn will gain access to Atari’s games catalogue which includes Centipede, Pong and Asteroids as well as providing crypto technology, skill-based wagering opportunities through Unkrn’s patent-pending UMode platform, and wagering experiences to Atari Casino and Atari Token as part of the new link-up.
Rahul Sood, co-founder of Unikrn and former Microsoft Ventures CEO said: “Unikrn and Atari are pioneers in the gaming industry, changing the world around us with creativity and innovation.
“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.”
Atari Chain, a subsidiary of the group formed to lead the development of ongoing projects in the field of cryptocurrencies in entertainment-based industries, has released the Atari Token, currently scheduled for launch by September of this year.
“Today we have forged another essential partnership to support Atari’s journey into cryptocurrency and blockchain-based entertainment experiences,” said Fred Chesnais, Atari CEO.
“Unikrn’s thriving ecosystem will provide Atari Token holders with significant additional utility and value, while the addition of Atari’s classic arcade brands to that ecosystem will offer extensive familiar-yet-new gaming content to Unikrn’s community.”
This follows the Atari team at the beginning of this month with Native Gaming and Black Dog Investment Partners that saw the introduction of Native ‘s forthcoming cryptocurrency into the ‘world’s first massive multiplayer slot game.’
