New York, NY (May 14, 2020) – Atari® — one of the world’s most iconic consumer brands and entertainment producers — today announced a new partnership with Arkane Network, a global monetization platform and provider of multichain blockchain APIs and wallets. As part of the agreement, Arkane will integrate Atari’s crypto-currency in its offering and will support the Atari Token and Atari’s strategic objective to boost the adoption of the Atari Token throughout the interactive entertainment ecosystem and its blockchain initiatives.
The Atari Token is issued by Atari Chain, Ltd (Gibraltar), a company equally owned by Atari and the ICICB Group. Arkane, a blockchain platform for game developers to create, secure, and monetize their digital game assets, will support the Atari Token, making it so developers can use the Atari Token as in-game currency for buying, selling, and trading assets.
