This event marks yet another highly anticipated NFT sale on the WAX Blockchain. The last few months have been a whirlwind of NFT activity on WAX, cementing the WAX Blockchain’s reputation as the King of NFTs. Every primary sale that launched on WAX immediately sold out; most of which contained more than 100,000 NFTs each, representing a combined total of more than 750,000 NFTs. Plus, secondary market sales continue to boom and will soon reach $2 million in total sales among the top four WAX-powered secondary markets.

"We are excited to partner with WAX and bring Atari's iconic brand and legendary games to the WAX blockchain," said Atari® CEO Fred Chesnais. "As a supporter of blockchain, I am also honored to join the WAX Advisory Council and be a part of a collective group of minds from technology, video gaming and entertainment industries to support and help accelerate the adoption of WAX tokens and blockchain technology in general."

The blockchain records every aspect of every collectible transaction and stores it forever. These blockchain records can’t be changed by anyone, but can be seen by everyone. Therefore, the blockchain is proof that the collectibles are authentic and can be traded or sold at any time without ever taking a chance with a buyer or seller because it’s verifiable on the WAX Blockchain.
