Atari to Add Litecoin as Payment Method for Atari Token

The partnership between Atari and the Litecoin Foundation will extend into multiple areas, to include the use of Litecoin across gaming platforms within the Atari ecosystem, along with other potential ventures, such as joint merchandising.

Atari, known globally for some of the most beloved video games in history such as Asteroids, Breakout, Centipede, and others, will provide Litecoin users the ability to use their coins in multiple ways throughout the Atari ecosystem. The first is as a means of investment into the soon to be released Atari Token. The Atari Token will have multiple uses, including the ability for holders of the token to manage purchases, and track digital assets within the Atari ecosystem, and as a payment method in the recently announced Atari Casino.

Litecoin will also become an option for purchasing the much-anticipated new Atari VCS game console at a discount. The VCS is Atari’s all-new PC/console hybrid, that will allow users to not only play hundreds of modern and classic video games and stream 4K video, but also allow users to create and upload their own games and apps for others to enjoy.

Many of us remember growing up and playing games from Atari,” said Charlie Lee, Managing Director of the Litecoin Foundation. “It is great to see Litecoin being used in a variety of different ways within the Atari ecosystem, from purchasing the new Atari VCS gaming console to being used as a way to invest in Atari Tokens. The Litecoin Foundation is excited to see the possibilities a partnership like this can have for not only Litecoin and cryptocurrencies but also the gaming industry and lifelong fans of Atari.
