Atari is widely known for making extremely popular games such as Breakout, Centipede, and Asteroids to name a few. According to the latest announcement, the Atari Gaming ecosystem will use Litecoin as a possible option to conduct payments. LTC will be accepted as a means of payment for investing in the token of Atari which is expected to be launched in September this year. In addition, the users can also use LTC to purchase new Atari VCS gaming consoles and get a discount as well.
The Atari token will have a list of uses such as managing Atari purchases and playing different games in the Atari Casino. The token will be used in the new games that are yet to be released where users can play against each other. The CEO of Atari Fred Chesnais stated:
“We Are Pleased To Have Litecoin As A Means Of Payment For The Atari Token Sales. Litecoin’s Ease-Of-Use And Low Transaction Costs Make It A Perfect Fit For Use Alongside The Atari Token And Other Projects. Many of us remember growing up and playing games from Atari” … “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.”

They made a few last year and they were featured in UFC 232 as a result and also onboarded Ben Askren as a new ambassador for Litecoin.
