“The deal we just announced with FTX is a by-product of our commerce and blockchain team, working hand-in-hand together to establish something unique in the retail world.” GameStop CEO, Matt Furlong said about the partnership.
GameStop And Web3
This isn’t the first time the videogame retail company has dived into the world of blockchain and Web3. In fact, it seems that GameStop is hard at work in making a name for itself in the world of Web3.
Back in July, GameStop successfully launched its very own Ethereum-based NFT marketplace, claiming that it aims to become a main player in the NFT gaming space.
GameStop’s NFT Marketplace proved itself to be a massive success, surging $7.2 million in weekly sales volume within the week of its launch.
After making a name for itself in the NFT space, it seems that GameStop is now aiming to focus its resources in making a name for itself in the crypto space, offering customers special FTX gift cards so that crypto enthusiasts will become more likely to visit their retail stores.
