Atari Casino Launches, With Virtual Party Hosted in Decentraland

Japanese video game company Atari, in association with Decentral Games, launched their cryptocurrency casino last night.

At the center of proceedings was DJ, record producer, and electronic musician Dillon Francis. One of the people behind the special NFTs auctioned off during the event. Francis teamed up with visual artist MERDA to create three NFTs, inspired by Gerald the Piñata.

The NFTs were auctioned off on OpenSea and other platforms during the launch party. One featured a “3D Pixel Gerald,” which sold for 6.42 ether (ETH), the equivalent of $17,788. 

In addition, Francis himself did a DJ set via live stream. Atari lauded the musician’s performance on Twitter, stating they had “broke[n] every record” with the launch party.

The virtual launch party began with a doubled prize pool. A tweet posted on the official account for Atari Token (ATRI) confirmed as much, less than four hours before the launch party began. This made the prize pool total at $20,000.

What is the Atari Casino?

Back in March, Atari announced its partnership with Decentral Games to launch a casino. A platform on which users can play casino games using cryptocurrencies. Reports indicate that the casino is a 3D virtual platform, operating on the Ethereum blockchain via Decentraland (MANA).

While the Atari Casino features a 20-parcel estate, situated in the Casino Quarter of Vegas City on Decentraland, they have plans to take on the real Vegas too. In the form of the world’s first Atari-themed hotel, set to open in Las Vegas in 2022.

Atari and other crypto ventures

Earlier this month, it was revealed that Atari would press on into the crypto space with the formation of a blockchain division. Namely, Atari Blockchain. With this, the gaming giant intends to develop new gaming experiences.

Drawing on implementations already made in games such as “Karma the Game of Destiny.” Last year, Atari integrated ATRI into the game for internal purchases.

Frédéric Chesnais, then the CEO of Atari, stepped down from his position to head up the Blockchain division.

This week we are celebrating our 7th year in business! Crazy to think of the growth in the industry even since last year. Let’s take a look back at the price of Bitcoin since May 2014 when Coinigy launched:

2014: $450
2015:  $230
2016:  $450
2017:  $1,400
2018:  $9,200
2019:  $5,400
2020: $9,100
2021:  $57,000

2020 was a challenging year for us all but the Coinigy team put our heads down and kept chipping away at our vision for V2. As you can see above, this bull run is not the first bull run that we have been through, and we are sure it won’t be the last. Even though this one may feel different, our focus and determination to continue building the best cryptocurrency application in the industry remains the same.

ADA Reaches All Time High as Bullish Run Continues

Avatar

Published

on

Cardano (ADA), has continued its bullish run to reach an all-time high of $1.68 today.

The seventh largest cryptocurrency by market cap, Cardano, has continued its bullish run to reach an all-time high of $1.68 today. ADA has been watched closely with many expecting it to rise due to multiple factors, including potential for smart contract capabilities.

ADA was founded in 2017, by one of the co-founders of the Ethereum (ETH) network, and is the native token for the Cardano blockchain. Charles Hoskinson discussed the outlook for Cardano on his YouTube page recently, outlining a roadmap to 2025.

Contributing factors

Recent business partnerships and the smart contract capabilities are believed to be contributing factors to this bull run. Last month, it was announced that Cardano would be partnering with the Ethiopian government to digitize the country’s education sector.

The blockchain firm will use its identity solution Atala PRISM in thousands of schools across Africa’s second most populated country. If completed, this will be the world’s largest blockchain database system.

When Hoskinson laid out Cardano’s roadmap last month, he mentioned the final Voltaire update. Before this can happen, the next update – Alonzo – must be completed. The Alonzo upgrade will introduce smart contract support to the Cardano blockchain.

If the ability to enable smart contracts is completed, then theoretically Cardano can also allow for the development of NFTs on the blockchain. These kinds of capabilities could see Cardano emerge as a viable competitor to Ethereum.
