GameStop (GME) brings together a team of blockchain and NFT experts to work on the company’s future NFT platform.

An entry from the head of Web3 Gaming says GameStop is looking for someone with experience in “Ethereum, NFT, and blockchain-based gaming platforms.” The company also indicated that there are some plans related to the Metaverse in the works.
GameStop is looking for a unique person who can help accelerate the future of gaming and commerce. In this future, games are the place to go and play will depend on what you attend. Future creators will create not only games, but also components, characters and equipment. Blockchain will drive the trade below,” the job posting reads.
