As part of its foray into the emerging NFT gaming industry (Non-Fungible Token), the 8Tours Foundation, a provider of NFT gaming ecosystems, has appointed Michael Katz to its advisory board.

Katz has a 25-year track record in the video game entertainment industry, including senior positions at major game companies. He was president of Atari’s video game division, president of SEGA in the United States, and chief marketing officer of Mattel.

The 8Hours Foundation hopes to increase the acceptance of its new products, launched under the VIMWorld brand, by adding Katz to its board of directors.

VIMWorld is a non-fungible token ecosystem that provides an authentication system that allows owners to store and generate value through various connections between gambling entrepreneurs.

The 8Hours Foundation’s Advisory Board includes former executives from large game franchise companies such as Call of Duty, Guitar Hero and Tetris.

A representative of the foundation commented on Katz joining his advisory team:

“”Its weight in the industry [el de Michael Katz] It is unmatched as it has been part of some of the most successful product launches in video game history.. With years of experience at the helm of Atari, SEGA and Mattel, we are confident that Michael’s advice will be essential to our future success as it has taken leading game companies to new heights and product areas. “

In another recent announcement within the blockchain gaming industry, BBC Studios entered the blockchain gaming space on August 13th after working with Reality Gaming Group to develop a digital trading game for the popular Doctor Who television series.

This is the first time the UK public broadcaster has used blockchain technology to commercialize its intellectual property.
