Brock Pierce, Crypto Pioneer, Purchases NFT By Atari Founder Nolan Bushnell — Original Space Game NFT
Brock Pierce, a household name in the digital currency and blockchain space saw the future of NFT’s (Non Fungible Tokens) before the frenzy began. Pierce invested in nft.com and purchased Mick Jagger’s first NFT earlier this year. But what makes the Nolan Bushnell “ARCADE OG SERIES” NFT special, is their relationship dating back to the days when Pierce was himself an avid video game player at the height of Atari’s popularity. So much so, that he gave Bushnell his first Bitcoin back in 2015.
Nolan Bushnell is known as the Godfather of Video. In 1972, he launched Atari, one of the world’s most iconic gaming companies. He is also the man behind the Chucky Cheese Burger empire. It is a known fact in the industry that Bushnell gave Steve Jobs his first job, and according to Jobs’ partner Stephen Wozniak, Bushnell was Jobs’ inspiration to start Apple.

Over a dinner in Puerto Rico last week, where several NFTs were being auctioned, Pierce jumped at the chance to purchase not only a piece of history, but for him, a trip down memory lane. Pierce, born in the 80’s, is a byproduct of the computer industry. Only now, this NFT series offers immersive videos and AR (augmented reality) which was inspired by two of Bushnell’s earlier and most iconic creations “Computers and Space Pong”
Pierce states, “Why I’m so excited about this is because our industry is desperately in need of killer apps, and practical and scalable options for blockchain. I’m all in on NFTs.”
“NFT’s are pushing the evolution of atoms to bits, from physical to digital. People have collected atoms in the form of playing cards, collectibles, and art for many years, and now, as the world becomes increasingly digital, NFTs allow us to collect bits. I am honored to work with MakersPlace to share some of my initial works” – Nolan Bushnell.
