What is Atari Token?
The video game industry, and more generally the Interactive Entertainment Industry, is filled with opportunities for blockchain and distributed ledger technology integration. These innovations not only benefit all stakeholders, including gamers, who now have access to an incredible variety of games, but also developers, producers, and any professional trying to succeed in the gaming industry. The immediate goal of the Atari Token is to be a reference utility crypto-currency used for the world of video games. The broader objective of the Atari Token is to establish itself as the crypto-currency of choice for anyone in the industry fulfilling a task with a smart contract. We intend to capitalize on a trend that is growing exponentially in our industry: the decentralisation of tasks around the globe and the use of smart contracts to fulfil them. We see the Atari Token as an opportunity for anyone – even the under-banked, the underserved, or the next wave of 4 billion individuals who are getting access to the internet – to find useful incentives for their work and improve their financial condition through access to a new decentralised financial system. This document outlines the vision and characteristics of the Atari Token, with an ambition to create a new crypto-currency available on as many smart contract powered platforms as possible worldwide, starting obviously with video games.
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, always in accordance with applicable regulations.
