There is no end in sight to the NFT hype. On the contrary, because GameStop is now apparently preparing to open its own trading platform.
GameStop is in the process of assembling a team of NFT experts to create its own NFT platform. This is based on a job posting from GameStop that had more than 10,000 upvotes on Reddit at the time of writing – that’s massive. Many members rate this latest step by GameStop positively. GameStop secretly, quietly and quietly published a website for its NFT marketplace back in May . This page is currently showing a game console in the style of a Nintendo Gameboy. There is an Ethereum logo on it and a message calling for people to work for the platform.
At first, GameStop did not provide any further details about this mysterious undertaking. At least not until October 25, when a total of eight positions for crypto-friendly candidates were advertised. GameStop is explicitly looking for “NFT-experienced software engineers” in three of them. Three other positions are aimed at product marketers and two focus on Web3-based games.
GameStop shares are soaring this year
One of the vacancies for the job of Head of Web3 Gaming states that GameStop is looking for someone who has experience with “Ethereum, NFTs and blockchain-based gaming platforms”. The company has also indicated that it has some Metaverse-related plans in the works.
GameStop (GME) shares have risen a full 844 percent since the beginning of the year, which is not least due to the Reddit forum Wallstreetbets and the associated hype . Some forum members already suspect that the price should climb even further after the opening of its own NFT platform.
At the moment it seems as if new NFT marketplaces are springing up like mushrooms and want to make it difficult for the top dogs. A job advertisement recently appeared on Reddit suggesting such a plan . Also Coinbase want to get involved in the thick NFT business. Actually known as a crypto exchange, the company expanded its blockchain offering around two weeks ago. Since then, users have been able to register on a waiting list in order to soon take part in Coinbase ‘s decentralized NFT marketplace.
