Atari makes strategic investment in blockchain specialist and mobile publisher Animoca Brands

Atari has acquired $250,000 worth of shares in Hong Kong-floated publisher Animoca Brands.

As part of the agreement, Animoca will make blockchain versions of Atari's mobile titles. Specifically, these include Rollercoaster Tycoon Touch, the famous amusement park simulator, and Goon Squad, a card-based multiplayer game.

Widening blockchain's appeal

Rollercoaster Tycoon Touch currently has over 19 million downloads, giving any blockchain adoption the potential to draw in a mass playerbase.

The success of these products is mutually beneficial for the two. With revenue being shared with Atari when it hits over $500,000 in revenue.
