According to a Cryptopolitian article, the Atari Token posted a dramatic decrease in value, registering an 84% slump so far. Some Twitter users went so far as to question the credibility of the token, calling it a scam.
However, there is no evidence that Atari has done anything amounting to a scam. The company may have failed to garner sufficient interest, but nothing that suggests foul play.
Atari did present itself as a game-changer, and attempt to whip up interest in its own brand and create an online casino where the ATRI could be used reliably.
One mistake was that when the presale began, two websites were tasked with carrying out the transactions, Ataritoken.com and Atarichain.com.
The day of the public sale seems to have been disappointing to buyers because of what the article described as skepticism towards transfer of consumers tokens from the exchanges only five minutes after listing.
Later, users reported that they had had to wait up to 12 hours to claim their tokens, an unusually long waiting time for cryptocurrencies.
The Atari Token is still out there, but interest may continue to decline. The company has not had much to say so far, although CryptoGamblingNews was and remains excited about the company's prospects in leveraging the Atari brand name and power it up using a dedicated token.
