Blockchain joins the retro wave: Atari to launch new crypto console

Atari was the company that revolutionized the world with the invention of the first video game console. This changed the concept of life for many at that time. And now, in 2020, Atari seems to promise a new revolution, as Atari launches a new crypto console.

Since its emergence, Blockchain technology has promised advances and solutions for almost every sector and industry in the world. And the video game industry has been included in these advances.

Remembered is the example of the popular Cryptokitties. This is a fun digital collection game, which made headlines in late 2017 and was famous for clogging up the Ethereum network.

Is it now time for Atari to reclaim its position as the vanguard of crypto games?
