Atari SA is developing its igaming project in partnership with Decentral Games with the entire website is based on the Ethereum blockchain, bringing popular Atari classics to the blockchains as well as non-fungible tokens (NFT) solutions.
Atari and Decentral Games are posting rather a positive outlook too. According to Atari, bets should reach an estimated $150m in 2021 alone, but this amount would most likely reach $400m by 2023.
The project has led Atari CEO Frederic Chesnais to express his ambition for it to lead to the revitalization of the company. Chesnais is convinced that Atari's future lies on the blockchain, or at least part of it does.
There have been arguments for both launching online casinos on the blockchain and avoiding them, but a critical mass for igaming projects has been reached, enough to see many established brands today offer top-notch products.
Atari is not stopping there and is tapping in the surging popularity of NFT tokens. NFTs allow users to “own” a moment of internet history, which can be anything from a meme to an NBA highlight moment video.
With Atari facing some difficulties of its own, Chesnais has been committed to making the company “more relevant” and modernizing its offer, bringing back some of the 1970s and 1980s glory.
Atari now has a very good position through its association with Decentral Games to make a splash on the crypto gaming space and not least in the burgeoning NFT economy.
