The Atari Token, the cryptocurrency for the upcoming Atari video game console, is now listed on the Changelly cryptocurrency exchange to make it more accessible to United States users, according to a press release from the group.
This token will be built on Ethereum’s ERC-20 platform, and plans to be “the standard for the video game and entertainment industry.” The asset will also be available on HitBTC.
Changelly is described as a company that “enables in-app trading to any wallet owner and breaks down barriers to entry by providing users with increased accessibility to its non-custodial service without the need for accounts,” the release continues.
The asset plans to provide the following for the gaming space:
Monetization of digital assets;
Means of payment for smart contracts;
Compatibility with crypto-currency wallets and decentralized applications;
Speeds of up to 20 transactions per second;
Easy token transfers and exchanges;
Visibility as a tradeable asset within the crypto-market.
Speaking on the matter is Frédéric Chesnais, the CEO of Atari, who said:
“While a key use of Atari Token will be as a payment tool within our ecosystem, our goal has never been to limit its use to our own proprietary platform. We have already identified several categories in the current market that can benefit from Atari Token and have recently entered into many partnership agreements to expand its adoption.”
