Atari is one of the most iconic brands in the gaming industry with popular games such as Tetris, RollerCoster Tycoon, and other beloved titles that we all spent hours playing. With today’s announcement, Arkane Network, a global monetization platform, and API provider of multiple blockchains is going to integrate the Atari’s cryptocurrency while supporting the strategic objectives to promote Atari Token through various initiatives.
Arkane allows developers to build decentralized applications using various APIs. With the support of Atari token, studios and individual developers will be able to integrate it as the in-game currency for buying, selling, and virtual assets trading.
Our partnership with Arkane is another significant step toward broad adoption of blockchain initiatives across interactive entertainment, and specifically our Atari Token cryptocurrency as a secure means to buy, sell, and trade digital assets.

Atari Embraces Blockchain Gaming
The world-known brand has expressed their intentions to integrate blockchain technology into their games multiple times. As we reported in December 2018, Atari has licensed Animoca Brands to develop RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch and Goon Squad with both games expected to release this year. Moreover, Atari is building a theme park and various other gaming experiences in the decentralized virtual word “The Sandbox.” The particular partnership was announced a few days before the third land sale of The Sandbox game, which resulted in 2,384 LAND parcels sold under six hours, raising 3,330 ETH (440,000 USD) in a historic performance.
