The Decentraland (MANA) token increased by 31% on March 9 after news that the classic game maker Atari will make casino games in Decentraland’s virtual world.
The partnership announced on March 8 between Atari and Decentral Games will lead to the launch of Atari casino as part of Decentraland in May. The casino is expected to have several Atari-themed games that can be played with MANA tokens, DAI stablecoin, DG Decentral Games token or Atari token (ATRI) called Atari.
Decentral Games is a community ecosystem in Decentraland whose users manage it through an autonomous decentralized organization in DG DAO. 88% of the declared dividend will go to DG DAO Treasury.
Decentraland is an Ethereum-based virtual world consisting of 90,000 land packages, each of 16 square meters. Users can create a variety of applications and structures in Decentraland, including games, marketplaces and shops to sell digital and physical goods.
Atari Casino will be built on 20 virtual sites in the Casino Quarter of Vegas City in Decentraland. In the early 1970s, Atari was the first to develop many classic video games. While the casino will primarily be about gambling, at least one offer from Atari will also be skill-based.
Within 24 hours of the announcement, all three original tokens were valued at double-digit winnings in a record of all time.
The MANA Decentraland token rose 31% on the day, rising from an initial price of $ 0.4447051 to $ 0.587266. MANA broke its full-time in 2018 in February 2021, and Tuesday’s boom saw the token cross its previous height again.
DG Decentral Games’ token rose to a record high Tuesday after rising 21%, raising the token price from $ 233.51 to $ 289.69. DG started trading on stock exchanges in December 2020.
Meanwhile, the value of the ATRI token jumped 85%, from $ 0.198990 to $ 0.369760, which is also a new all-time high, surpassing the value of the ATH token that was recorded shortly after trading began in November 2020. For publication, ATRI is down to $ 0.272, increasing the token 36% over the last 24 hours.
The opening of Atari Casino is expected to be celebrated with an opening party before the official announcement. Users will have the opportunity to win a range of prizes, including non-exchangeable tokens and a share of ATRI and DG tokens.
