1+1+1=$$$? Lets discuss Atari who is emerging involvement with gaming, gambling, blockchain crypto, AMD...
I own stock in Atari, therefore I try to follow their projects. They have offices in the U.S. but are based out of France, so most of the chatter online I have to run through Google translate. I have noticed a trend in their projects which ties together nicely- speculative at this point yes, but the entire market is speculative really (invest in a company hoping they will profit, grow, expand, etc). So here is what I have so far- lets discuss possibilities.
1- Atari is already involved in real money gambling, both online and in casinos. One of their partners is Pariplay. Reference- http://www.pariplayltd.com/legend-lives-pariplay-atari-launch-atari-pong-online-slot/ "Pong is the latest video arcade classic from Atari® to be honoured with an action-packed online slot, featuring non-stop excitement and plenty of big win potential. Pariplay’s previous Atari®-branded releases include Asteroids®, Star Raiders® and Black Widow®."
... enabling guests at North America's largest resort casino to enjoy digital gaming on-property ... provide guests access to a myriad of digital games, including branded titles Atari Pong, X-O Manowar and Atari Asteroids via a Foxwoods-branded mobile application and web portal.
3- Atari just released this- (again google translated)
"Paris, France - February 8, 2018. The Atari Group announces two major development projects in the field of blockchains and crypto-currencies, with a shareholding in a crypto-platform and the creation of a dedicated Token ("Atari Token"), and on the other hand the upcoming launch of casino platforms offering crypto-currency game options. Acquisition of a stake in Infinity Networks Ltd (Gibraltar) and creation of Atari Token Atari took a 15% stake, with a 17.5% stake in Infinity Networks, Ltd. (Gibraltar). This investment, made without cash disbursement by Atari, demonstrates the appeal of the Atari brand. Infinity Networks, Ltd. (Gibraltar), a company founded by a team of veteran Entertainment and Finance industry veterans and led by Ron Dimant and Daniel Doll-Steinberg, has an advisory board that brings together leading figures from foreground in the field of blockchains. The company is developing a decentralized platform giving access to any form of digital entertainment, ie a very wide offer ranging from video games to movies and music. This platform, under development, will work using cryptocurrency, the Atari Token. In exchange for these equity interests, earnings and future royalties, Atari has granted Infinity Networks, Ltd. (Gibraltar) a long-term license to use the Atari brand. "Blockchains technology is poised to take a very important place in our environment and to transform, if not revolutionize, the current economic ecosystem, especially in the areas of the video game industry and online transactions," he said. Frédéric Chesnais, CEO of Atari, SA. "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. Our objective is to take strategic positions with a limited cash risk, in order to optimize the assets and the Atari brand ". The second project in progress is the strengthening of the partnership with Pariplay, Ltd in the launch in 2018 of casino platforms allowing players to bet either in real money or with most crypto-currencies currently outstanding. . These casino sites will offer many Atari games. To broaden the appeal of these new casinos, and once the Atari Token available, Atari has the project to launch Pong Token, a second Token dedicated to crypto-casinos and usable on these gaming sites. The details of this launch of crypto-casinos will be announced soon.
4- Chairman and CEO of Atari is 'advisor' to Virt-U
5- We all know the widespread knowledge that Atari & AMD are partnered on the upcoming Atari home gaming console- confirmed by AMD to be using a Ryzen chip.
SOO...again this is all speculation by me, but this console could not only be used for normal games, but possibly be involved with the Atari token both in transactions, gaming, mining, and even gambling. Lots to chew on. Lots that would need to fall into place. Lots of chances of failures. But if it all ties together like it appears it could do...they just may be consolidating what at initial glance would be diversified projects. Thoughts?
Singer/Songwriter Sammi Rae Murciano Shines Light on Bullying Through Personal Experience with “REFLECTION”
The Song’s Message of Empowerment Comes From Stars Own Accounts of Hardships August, 2017 (New York, NY) – With the National Center for Educational Statistics reporting that one out of every five students in the U.S. say they’ve experienced some form of bullying, the issue continues to have a powerful impact on children and young adults alike who look for outlets to express their pain along with messages of hope. Having gone through her own bout with being bullied however, Sammi Rae Murciano has turned her hardship into “Reflection” (OUT NOW!), an empowering track that looks back at her own experiences, along with a brand new EP set to debut this Fall! “The line in the song ‘living everyday not knowing what was going to happen or be’ shows everything I've gone through getting up each and every day.” says the singer. But having been bullied gave her inspiration to help others that are going through the same thing. “There are many stories you hear about people being bullied and how they resort to harmful and drastic measures which could lead to dangerous outcomes.” But Murciano had the perfect outlet to channel her own pain, saying “I had my singing to turn to and it's only made me stronger. As a way to escape from the feelings of being hurt, bullied, and hated on, I started writing in my journal...which turned into a source for songs that told my story”. Recorded at The Loft Sound Studio with recording artist and winner of MTV's “Making The Band 4” Donnie Klang and Artist/Engineer Matthew LaPorte, the incredible production value help further highlight its powerful message. The Long Island native has been singing for three years, and garnering a ton of praise from audiences nationwide. As a recent review by Digital Journal stated - “Her breathy vocals are expressive, and reminiscent of a young Demi Lovato”, and for Murciano, singing is her passion. Inspired by a wide range of talents before her, she has cited her major influences as everyone from Whitney Houston to Celine Dion, Beyonce, Rihanna, Adele, and many more. Her strong and soulful voice is well beyond her years at the young age of 16, and knowing that you have to believe in yourself and have confidence to be successful has been her continued mantra, especially showcased through “Reflection”. On her early beginnings as a singer, she’s said of her musical awakening in school "I always loved to sing. I was in chorus, and had a solo. Being in front of everyone performing, was an amazing feeling. I knew this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life," continuing "I would love to tour all over the world, and my dream is to perform at Madison Square Garden." And with her continued drive and incredible voice, she certainly seems to be on the right path. Currently working on new cover videos, and a number of live dates, she recently opened for Nick Cincotta and Rapta on their North East tour along with a live performance at Foxwoods Resort & Casino for the That's Entertainment National Dance Competition! With an incredible sense of motivation for following her true calling, Murciano has said she owes it to "Knowing that I get to get up everyday, and do what I love, which is singing”, and with that amount of drive, there will certainly be more to come.
