"The reuse of the name seems coincidental at this point, though it's possible that the old Atari Tokens could be folded into the new Atari Token brand somehow."

'"Given our technological strengths with the development studios, and the global reputation of the Atari brand, we have the opportunity to position ourselves attractively in this sector," Atari Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Frederic Chesnais said in a statement. '

'If the name "Atari Token" sounds familiar, it might be because the firm previously used that name for its own cross-platform reward points system which could be used to fuel in-game microtransactions. '

'Atari is also planning to extend its existing partnership with online casino maker Pariplay to create a separate "Pong Token" that will be accepted in "crypto-casinos."'
