Recently, Atari announced it is leasing space inside Decentraland. It intends to launch a crypto-fueled gaming platform (seemingly a casino) inside Decentraland. To recap, Decentraland is a virtual reality platform that runs on top of the Ethereum blockchain (a cryptocurrency)
On the news of this move, MANA, which is a cryptocurrency used by Decentraland, gained almost 20% overnight and it's being speculated whether it’s a matter of time before MANA reaches $1 ($0.52 now). MANA has gained almost 100% over last week.
How is it related to Earth2?
This obviously brings the focus back to the questions: how will Earth-2 integrate crypto? And will ‘Essence’ will be like Decentraland’s MANA? MANA is the digital asset token used to pay for goods and services in Decentraland. Will corporations come to Earth2 sooner than we think - just like Atari?
However, all this happening at Decentraland gives some validation to the virtual real estate model – which is very good for Earth2 and its stakeholders, and at E2.News we love sharing the good news!
