What is Atari?

Atari (ATRI) is the token of the famous video game company that produced classics like Asteroids and Pong. In recent years, Atari has invested heavily in blockchain and, in 2021, split its operations into Atari Gaming and Atari Chain. ATRI is an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum blockchain and is meant to be used as a way to transfer value between players. Atari also says it is developing games where players can stake tokens against other users, with the winner taking all the tokens staked. At a market cap of only $44 million at the time of writing, it is one of the smaller cryptocurrencies on the market and trading volume is often very low, with the largest number of daily trades confined to smaller, lesser known exchanges. Liquidity is often low. This means it might be more difficult to sell ATRI tokens than it is to buy them.

Atari (ATRI) is the 504th largest cryptocurrency in the world by market cap, valued at $66,413,186. The current price of Atari is $0.063179, which is 11.500% higher than yesterday. Prices have ranged between $0.066932 and $0.055799 over the past 24 hours. All prices are listed in US dollars and accurate as of September 24, 2021 01:09 UTC.

What to consider when buying Atari

When deciding to invest in a cryptocurrency, it’s important to consider the coin and its platform’s potential upside and deterrents:
  • Muddled thinking. It is not clear that Atari has come up with any successful use cases for its token to date. The ATRI token whitepaper, released in August 2020, said its first major use case was “a crypto-casino, offering players the possibility to gamble with crypto-currencies” and later press releases said the casino would feature Atari NFTs which players could use to earn Ethereum. But in early July 2021, Atari Casino was scrapped, with the company taking a $6m loss on the failed project.
  • Pre-sale. While ATRI has been available to the public since October 2020, 10% of the supply was sold to private investors in 3 pre-sale portions in April, September and October 2020. 25% of the total supply of ATRI has been held back for founders, 20% is locked in an ecosystem development fund due to be released over the next 3 years, and 30% is due to be released at some unspecified point in the future in response to network growth and demand rates. With only 10% of the circulating supply being made available to the public, ATRI may be difficult to trade.
  • Direct link to Atari. Atari as a company has seen better days. Its share price has declined from an all-time high of more than 10 euros per share to less than 0.5 euros today. Despite being a pioneer in gaming, sales have slowed in recent years and it has been overtaken by much newer entrants and online gaming platforms like Xbox Live, PlayStation and Google Stadia. If Atari share price continues to decline, it is likely to affect the price of ATRI, too. If their games sell well, there will be a larger audience for ATRI tokens in future and, therefore, more demand. If games sell poorly, then demand could dry up.
