Where to buy Atari

It looks like ATRI may not be available to purchase on an exchange in the US.

You can still purchase ATRI by using a decentralized exchange (DEX) instead. Decentralized exchanges are web applications that run on blockchains like Ethereum and allow users to trade any asset directly with one another.

Decentralized exchanges (DEX) are unregulated and run using autonomous pieces of code known as smart contracts. To use a DEX you must interact with the blockchain directly, which is not recommended for novice users. Please learn about decentralized exchanges first if you're unfamiliar.

How to purchase ATRI using a decentralized exchange.
  1. Find ATRI on a decentralized exchange and make sure Atari can be traded for ETH which is the native asset of Ethereum. Popular DEXs include Uniswap, SushiSwap and 1INCH.
  2. Buy ETH to trade for ATRI using an exchange like Gemini. You will need to purchase enough ETH to swap for ATRI as well as ETH to pay for transaction fees on the Ethereum network (known as gas). You can use a service like Etherscan to get an idea of how much gas fees currently cost.
  3. Transfer the ETH into a web 3.0 wallet like MetaMask to connect to the DEX.
  4. Trade ETH for ATRI on the DEX of your choice, following the instructions on screen. Make sure to leave enough ETH in your wallet to pay for gas.
  5. Wait for the transaction to finalize and the ATRI tokens will arrive in your wallet.
  6. You may now keep the tokens in your web 3.0 wallet or transfer them somewhere more secure like a hardware wallet.

You can follow the same process when you want to sell your tokens, or come back to this page to see if they can now be traded on an exchange in the US.

Best Atari wallets to store your ATRI

You can keep your ATRI on the exchange you purchased it on, or move it to a personal wallet:

  • Some people like to use their own wallets to guarantee total ownership over their assets, or to use them with other applications like DeFi services.
  • Hardware wallets are typically considered to be the safest type of cryptocurrency wallet, as they use a physical device to enhance security in a number of ways. You can take a look at some of our top hardware wallet picks for self-custody of your ATRI below.

Is Atari a good investment?

When deciding to invest in a cryptocurrency, it’s important to consider the coin and its platform’s potential upside and deterrents:
  • Muddled thinking. It is not clear that Atari has come up with any successful use cases for its token to date. The ATRI token whitepaper, released in August 2020, said its first major use case was “a crypto-casino, offering players the possibility to gamble with crypto-currencies” and later press releases said the casino would feature Atari NFTs which players could use to earn Ethereum. But in early July 2021, Atari Casino was scrapped, with the company taking a $6m loss on the failed project.
  • Pre-sale. While ATRI has been available to the public since October 2020, 10% of the supply was sold to private investors in 3 pre-sale portions in April, September and October 2020. 25% of the total supply of ATRI has been held back for founders, 20% is locked in an ecosystem development fund due to be released over the next 3 years, and 30% is due to be released at some unspecified point in the future in response to network growth and demand rates. With only 10% of the circulating supply being made available to the public, ATRI may be difficult to trade.
  • Direct link to Atari. Atari as a company has seen better days. Its share price has declined from an all-time high of more than 10 euros per share to less than 0.5 euros today. Despite being a pioneer in gaming, sales have slowed in recent years and it has been overtaken by much newer entrants and online gaming platforms like Xbox Live, PlayStation and Google Stadia. If Atari share price continues to decline, it is likely to affect the price of ATRI, too. If their games sell well, there will be a larger audience for ATRI tokens in future and, therefore, more demand. If games sell poorly, then demand could dry up.
