Gaming retailer GameStop is building an NFT platform on Ethereum

4 weeks ago

GameStop has quietly unveiled a new web portal for a non-fungible token (NFT) platform.

"We are building a team" the page declares, stating:

"We welcome exceptional engineers (solidity, react, python), designers, gamers, marketers, and community leaders. If you want to join our team, send your profile or something you've built to: nfteam@gamestop.com."

The exact scope of the project is unclear, though prominently featured on the page is a link to an Ethereum address, indicating that GameStop's team will use Ethereum as a technology base.

The smart contract code declares "Game On Anon" and links to GameStop's NFT page and indicates that potential GameStop-released NFTs will utilize Ethereum's ERC721 standard. The code also points to a dedicated token, GME.

As for the intended audience for whatever NFT offering emerges from GameStop's team, an animated image on the page states: "Power to the players. Power to the creators. Power to the collectors."
