GameStop is now expanding its business as cryptocurrency market grows further. Now, experts confirmed that its NFT website has been updated. But, why?
GameStop has been one of the largest online selling companies. Its business even grew further after the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic began. Now, it seems like the giant tech firm wants to expand the scope of its business even more.
This was confirmed by experts after they saw that the official NFT website of GameStop has been updated. The company first launched its new NFT website at the end of May 2021.
This indicated the first step of the tech firm into the giant blockchain market.
Prior to the website launch, on April 8, 2021, Gamestop disclosed it was hiring a security analyst that has experience with blockchain, cryptocurrency, and NFTs. However, the company did not provide the essential information for its website.
Now, the NFT website has been updated, saying that it is looking for new blockchain creators. GameStop said in the online platform’s new description that it is “calling all creators. Request to be a creator on the Gamestop NFT marketplace.”
Moving Forward to NFT Market
The GameStop NFT marketplace appears to be prepping for launch and the creator sign-up form asks a number of questions. The questionnaire asks what the NFT creator would like to be called and whether or not they describe themselves as an “independent artist, creator, game dev, or meme lord.”
Gamestop also asks if the person has a website and if they have ever created an NFT. The company’s questionnaire would also ask the interested consumers if they are using an Ethereum wallet already. Because of this, a lot of speculations started to appear after the company updated its NFT website.
One of these is about the so-called project Loopring. There’s a lot of speculation that Gamestop will be working with the layer two (L2) project Loopring. At the end of November, a Canadian reporter asked Loopring’s CEO, Daniel Wang, about the Gamestop speculation.
After the reporter told Wang that there’s been “a lot of rumors about a potential partnership” with the giant retailer and then asked the CEO if the “potential deal” was legitimate.” However, Wang said that he can’t comment on this topic yet.
Right now, the giant retailer still refuses to disclose any more information about the official marketplace launch, how it will work, or what projects the company is working with right now. The Ethereum contract stored on the company’s new NFT web portal and the new question about using an Ethereum wallet has led many to believe the NFT marketplace software will be based on the Ethereum blockchain.
However, it is still too early to make a conclusion about the blockchain innovation of the giant retailer. But, you can still use the information provided above so that you can have more ideas what is coming your way.
