Pepe Coin Gains 9% in 7 Days as One of Web3’s Hottest New Gaming Platforms Draws $165k in Presale
Pepe Coin (PEPC) has seen significant gains over the past week, rising almost 9% in the past 7 days. The altcoin’s gains are largely attributed to its adoption by a new, buzzy gaming platform for the Ethereum network, Star Atlas.
Star Atlas, the ambitious blockchain-based gaming startup, drew in almost $165,000 in its successful presale of 70 million PEPC coins last week. Premiership football club Manchester City FC is reportedly among the project’s big-name investors.
The gaming platform is billed as the “world’s first social and gaming network powered by Ethereum” and intends to provide users with a fully integrated experience combining competitive gaming, streaming, content creation, and digital asset exchange.
Pepe Coin is integrated with the Star Atlas network, allowing users to wager on games and tournaments in a secure and safe way.
The cryptocurrency’s gains have been further bolstered by speculation that Star Atlas may soon announce partnerships with major gaming and eSports organizations.
As well as its adoption by Star Atlas, Pepe Coins is also being used by several other blockchain-based gaming platforms powered by Ethereum, such as Wakbox and AugDec. These platforms are of particular interest to gamers due to their low latency, transparency, and high throughput.
As the adoption and integration of Pepe Coins continue to grow, investors are all the more confident of the altcoin’s long-term prospects. According to market indicators, the coin is primed for further upside in the weeks ahead.
