“I’m a Strong Believer in Blockchain; This is Just the Beginning:” Atari CEO Fred Chesnias

In this week’s podcast episode, we interview Fred Chesnias, the CEO of Atari. The video game company now has a token and plans to release a wallet and even an exchange. The token is an erc20, which Atari hopes will get used across any game, not just its own. With the token, users will be able to buy Atari NFTs, which include wearables to make a fashion statement in the metaverse. Chesnias says he’s a big believer in blockchains and thinks it can be a way to make it out of poverty, even leveraging video games themselves. Beyond blockchains he also talks about business; Chesnias was able to take Atari out of deep financial stress and turn it around.
