Atari has partnered with WAX blockchain to introduce its games to the block chain in the form of NTF tokens.
Earlier this week, Atari president Frederic Chesnais joined the WAX Advisory Board, which also includes Google, Microsoft, Marvel Games, Magic Leap and William Shatner. A few days after this announcement, an entry regarding the details of cooperation appeared on the atari games profile.

Atari is very interested in blockchain
Atari is obviously the best known company as the creator of classic video games such as Pong, Space Invaders, Tetris and Pac Man. Over the past two years, the company has seriously started entering the blockchain industry, and their goal is to build a block chain of popular mobile games: RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch and Goon Squad.
Earlier this year, Atari established cooperation with The Sandbox (TSB), which created a virtual theme park on the theme of Atari. TSB has already sold over $ 1 million worth of virtual land in pre-sale. The last batch sold out in just five hours and amounted to 3,400 ETH ($ 800,000). The land near Atari Park was sold at the highest price.
Atari is also developing two digital assets: Pong and Atari tokens. The latter will be used on the entire platform, with priority for online casinos. In June, the company announced that the Atari token would be used not only in games and purchases, but also as part of a partnership with Unikrn. In March, the company raised a $ 3.71 million fund, and in September this year it will conduct a public Atari token offer.
CNBC Trader host Ran Neuner shared on his Twitter Atari announcement of cooperation with WAX, and said that traditional companies are starting to enter the blockchain industry to improve the brand image.
