Planet Digital Partners has put together an all-star roster of game developers to launch the Rocket (RKT) token.
Their website reads: “The RKT token represents a ground floor opportunity for investors to be a part of a blockchain-driven Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft-licensed video game publisher, with a team of industry legends and hit-maker studios on board for this rocket ride.”
The all-star team consists of big players in the gaming industry. The leadership team and board of directors is headed by Steve Grossman, a “marketing guru” for Nintendo, and Kelly Sumner, former CEO of Rockstar Games, who has developed wildly popular games such as Grand Theft Auto (GTA).
Also part of the team are Chris Deering, former PlayStation Europe president dubbed as the “Father of the PlayStation,” and Matt Karch, CEO of Saber Interactive, who helped develop the Halo series.
The press release details that Planet Digital games will be made available on all major platforms, including PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Mobile.
Grossman adds: “We’re thrilled to bring blockchain to our games and deliver compelling new experiences to gamers that were previously impossible.”
The video games industry currently represents roughly $135 billion worth of business, and is expected to exceed $180 billion globally by 2022.
Alan McGlade, co-founder and COO of seriesOne, a Planet Digital partner and broker, comments: “We get most excited about working with veteran management teams that are applying blockchain to innovate in their industry. Planet Digital defines that category.”
It is believed that Planet Digital’s security offering token will be fuelled by the ERC-20 Rocket token, which will “reward investors proportionately with the growth of Planet Digital games sales. RKT tokens will be tied to the sale of every game, and as more games are released, token holders will continue to recognize the profits from the library of games.”
