On Tuesday, Atari Group announced a partnership with the Litecoin Foundation, which focuses on the convergence of interests between cryptocurrency and the gaming environment.
To date, Atari has acquired 74.19 Bitcoin (BTC) worth around $ 514,000 during the pre-sale of ICO. The money came mainly from partners. Not only will Atari accept investments in Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin and Ether (ETH), but players will also be able to pay for a future video computer system or VCS with Litecoin and get a discount. It will be available in the online boxing store.
Interference between players and cryptocurrencies
Atari CEO Frederick Chesnais told Cointelegraph that he hopes the Litecoin community will accept the partnership:
“I hope [Litecoin] becomes a big community. There is a good overlap. At the end of the day, we just hope people will take advantage of the discounts as well as the opportunity to use Litecoin.”
Great connection with the players
Jay Milla, head of marketing at the Litecoin Foundation, told Cointelegraph that he also believes there is an overlap between the two communities:
“We both have a great connection with games and players. In the cryptocurrency area, there are obviously many who do the gaming area, and the gaming area is usually the first to use it. It’s great to see a brand like Atari reinvent itself. And we have plans to see. How can we work together on everything Atari does. ”
In addition, according to Chesnays, VCS can be used to operate in a variety of blockchain applications:
“VCS is very interesting. This is your personal computer. So I think in the crypto community it can be one of the very flexible platforms and you can use it to work with Blockchain cases.”
In recent times, the gaming industry has become one of the most important areas for adopting blockchain technology. Since Litecoin is among the top 10 digital currencies and has one of the largest communities, this partnership can further contribute to the adoption of blockchain and cryptocurrencies in the gaming area.
