Video game retail giant, GameStop, has made various hints that it will be launching its own GameStop NFT marketplace. The marketplace, which was falsely rumoured to be released in July 2021, is expected to allow its users to browse and buy gaming NFTs which can then be traded on popular marketplace platforms.
Hints were first made earlier this year when the firm disclosed that it was looking to hire a security analyst who had experience in blockchain, NFTs, and cryptocurrencies. Since then, rumours of the firm diving into the NFT world have continued more explicitly, most notably through the company expressing its interest to hire NFT content creators on its website.
For creators wanting to sign up to the GameStop NFT creator team, they must answer several questions on the sign-up form, which include whether they have ever minted an NFT before, what title they wish to describe themselves, and if they’ve ever made use of an Ethereum wallet.
It is speculated that the GameStop NFT marketplace will be working with Layer 2 project, Loopring, and GameStop’s teaser page also features an Ethereum smart contract address. However, Daniel Wang, CEO of Loopring, declined to comment on the purported collaboration between GameStop and Loopring.
No other official information has been released yet with regards to the launch of the marketplace, how it will operate, or what projects the firm is currently working on.
