New York, NY (October 2, 2020) – Atari® — one of the world’s most iconic consumer brands and entertainment producers — today announced a partnership with gaming ecosystem, Chain Games. The terms of the collaboration include the integration of the Atari Token (ATRI) as a support cryptocurrency in Chain Games’ first-party blockchain-based titles — starting with Super Crypto Kart — as well as Chain’s upcoming marketplace and fantasy sports platform. Atari will additionally support the CHAIN Token ($CHAIN) across its library of future Atari Crypto Casino titles.
Chain Games™ (chaingames.io) is an evolution in Web 3.0 blockchain gaming, combining smart contract-based contests with state of the art gameplay. Committed to transitioning the blockchain gaming industry into the modern gaming era, the Chain Games’s ecosystem fits into three core categories: the development of first-party proprietary games featuring live multiplayer and crypto payouts; an open Chain dApp Game Store where developers can integrate Chain Games’ SmartContests™ system into their games; and collaboration with established game studios to integrate Chain Games’ systems and CHAIN Token into their titles.
Chain Games’ products are fully ERC-20 and Ethereum compatible. SmartContests™ is an industry first contract-based competition system where players can compete in games of skill to earn winnings. SmartStaking™ Gaming Contracts reward stakers on the network with 15% of the fees generated on each game played, allowing them to passively earn on any game played on the Chain network. Super Crypto Kart is the first blockchain-integrated game to utilize the Chain Games SmartContests™ Gaming Contracts. Super Crypto Kart is a cross platform kart-based racing game that is currently available on Windows, Mac OS, Linux, and soon to be released on Android, and iOS.
Both companies have swapped tokens for the equivalent of $200,000, subject to a 6-month lockup.
