Harmony, Atari and Quidd have teamed up to offer this exclusive limited-edition Centipede and Pong NFTs
CUPERTINO, Calif. - March 31, 2021 - PRLog -- Harmony and Quidd have partnered with legendary gaming brand Atari to launch the Atari Capsule Collection of non-fungible token (NFT) collectibles. The collection commemorates video game pioneers who helped to create the industry, and begins with Dona Bailey (Centipede) and Al Alcorn (Pong), who were both involved in the creation of this collection. The first item will go up for sale at 7 p.m. ET  (11 p.m. UTC) on Tuesday, March 30 with the final auction concluding on the evening of Friday, April 2.

The Atari Capsule Collection is a curated collection of rare retro-collectibles made possible by the partnership between Animoca Brands and Atari. Various companies collaborated to bring the Atari Capsule Collection to market: Quidd (https://quidd.co/), Animoca Brands' digital collectibles subsidiary; Blockparty (https://www.blockparty.co/), the artist-centric NFT marketplace; Harmony (https://www.harmony.one/), the first proof-of-stake and sharding mainnet blockchain; and OpenSea (https://opensea.io/), the world's largest NFT marketplace.

The NFTs in the Atari Capsule Collection will be issued on the Ethereum and Harmony blockchains, guaranteeing their provenance, authenticity, and originality, and enabling Atari fans, premium art collectors, retro games enthusiasts, and crypto investors to own a piece of video game history.

The first Atari Capsule Collection features collectibles based on beloved games from two of Atari's most notable creators: Dona Bailey (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dona_Bailey), the co-creator of Centipede and one of the first female programmers employed by Atari, and Al Alcorn (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allan_Alcorn), the creator of Pong. Both Dona and Al worked closely with Quidd and Animoca Brands to create this collection, which contains heavily researched, museum-grade pieces commemorating two of the most important video games of all time and their creators.

At launch, the public will be invited to go behind the scenes on the making of these groundbreaking video games, gaining access to visual and audio materials from the personal archives of these legendary Atari gamemakers. Rare photographs and exclusive interviews set the stage for the sale of unique flagship Atari digital collectibles.

This Atari Capsule Collection includes an assortment of collectibles across a broad range of price points in order to appeal to all Atari fans, Centipede and Pong fans, casual collectors, Quidd users, crypto collectors, investors, and digital museums. The collectibles are of the following categories:
  • NFTs issued by Blockparty and Opensea (ERC-721 standard)
  • Quidd collectibles that are NFT-convertibles (owners will have the choice to mint them as NFTs at a later date)

The items in the Atari Capsule Collection will be sold via four key channels starting on 30 March 2021 Blockparty, OpenSea, and Harmony for auctions and direct sales, and Quidd for pack purchases.
