Long-time basketball star Shaquille O’Neal has a new video game on the horizon utilizing the cryptocurrency Quark, also known as Quarkcoin, and it seems as though the legend is doing his research. Or, at least reading from a script.

Shaq took to his webcam and explained what Quark is in a brief segment that was then uploaded to YouTube. Of course, the video is not an endorsement of cryptocurrency on Shaq’s behalf by any means, as it could easily be him simply practicing for a line in the game. Whether or not Shaq owns any Quark is unknown, but there is a direct tie between himself, his video game, and the cryptocurrency.

Quark Used In The Mainstream Video Game “Shaq Fu: The Legend Reborn”

In April, the Quark Foundation released the announcement that Quark is implemented with the game, saying:

“Quark announces their partnership with the innovative development team behind Shaq-Fu: The Legend Reborn – Quark to be offered as a means of in-game payment,”

The game will release on Wi U, PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360 along with a PC version.


The publicity stunt could be huge, especially in a time where all cryptocurrencies are experiencing a downward trend. Alternative cryptocurrencies are being hit the hardest and across the board, everyone is looking for a game-changer. When Shaq Fu: The Legend Reborn releases, Quark may see a considerable bump in usage.

So far, the game looks fun, exciting and hilarious. Personally, I never thought that I’d see the day where Shaq Fu reared it’s head again, and I certainly never thought I’d see it utilize cryptocurrency. Here’s a great teaser trailer of Shaq Fu: The Legend Reborn.
