Atari will be the first company to use it Co:Create‘s token creation platform for Web3 gaming.
Co:Create’s platform will be used to create the building blocks for tokens based on the Atari X project.
“We are excited to support the Atari X token project,” Tara Fung, CEO of Co:Create, said in a statement. “Their team is really focused on bringing meaningful benefit to their wider user base. This is exactly the use case for which we started Co:Create. We couldn’t be happier to have Atari as our first partner.”
Co:Create’s technology provides the building blocks for token rewards and usability, as well as the ongoing support to help projects create token programs that meet community expectations. The Co:Create
platform can be used to design, deploy, manage and monitor a brand’s native token with highly configurable smart contracts and an easy-to-use dashboard.
The platform enables flexible token configurations based on business goals and community needs. Co:Create allows anyone to deploy EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine)-enabled smart contracts through a no-code dashboard to launch a token on testnet using only a web browser and a connected wallet. Contracts are fully owned by the project and the platform is free to use.
In the coming months, Co:Create will add new functionality to their platform, including token reward and
extension of utility contracts, role-based contract consents, and additional tooling for developers. With the
launch of the Co:Create platform, brands like Atari can use Web3 to expand and nurture their ecosystems
deeper community connection.
Co:Create, Gesso Labs’ first venture, is backed by A16z crypto, VaynerFund, Packy McCormick’s Not Boring Capital, Amy Wu, and the teams behind RTFKT and Tessera (formerly fractional.art).
Among the game companies, Atari is one of the most enthusiastic early adopters of blockchain technology, using Web3 to create new ways of interacting and collaborating with its partners, players and fans. Atari X, Atari’s dedicated Web3 vertical, has announced plans to explore the creation of a new branded token as an important part of this ecosystem.
“Atari X is focused on building a robust ecosystem that intertwines gaming, community and utility,” Tyler Drewitz, head of Atari X, said in a statement. “We view the Co:Create platform as a means to support and deliver on the development of our ecosystem.”
