Yesterday, we’ve seen impressive growth in GameStop stocks shortly after announcing its upcoming NFT marketplace. Accordingly, the platform will allow trading for gaming digital assets.
As a result, the GameStop stock shares have increased over 30%, reminding the world of its outstanding growth recorded back in January 2021. So maybe not everyone is so skeptical about a Gamestop NFT Marketplace after all.
The GameStop NFT marketplace: What we know so far
GameStop begins 2022 by making headlines thanks to its future NFT marketplace launch. Right now, there are over 20 tech experts working to develop the marketplace, which is scheduled to release later this year.
This news isn’t surprising, though. In fact, GameStop has been actively seeking designers, engineers, and community leaders for an NFT project since June 2021.
As of this month, the company is also accepting applications from content creators from all domains. For example, their application form says it’s accepting requests from visual artists, game developers, and even so-called “meme lords!”
The evolution of GameStop continues
GameStop has become the largest platform for trading and buying gaming-related assets. From Xbox and PlayStation consoles to games and systems, the company seems to have it all.
Considering the impressive growth of NFTs in recent months, it was somehow expected for the company to join the trend too. After all, many games have implemented NFTs into their system in order to facilitate in-game asset trading. Furthermore, NFT-powered play-to-earn games are skyrocketing in popularity – and the GameStop NFT marketplace might become a go-to place for that in 2022!
