Gamestop to launch NFT marketplace on Immutable X
Along with a $100M fund
After revealing its plans in a job post back in October, Gamestop has teamed up with Immutable X to launch an NFT marketplace later this year.
The upcoming GameStop NFT marketplace is built on Immutable X, the first layer 2 protocol in Ethereum that offers zero gas fees for trading and minting NFTs in a carbon-neutral environment.
GameStop’s marketplace will give developers the opportunity to create in-game economies, where players can buy, sell and trade in-game assets, such as digital real estate, weapons, and skins.
To avoid any backlash entering the NFT space, GameStop has also partnered with Trace and Cool Effect to “offset its remaining carbon footprint.”
In addition to the marketplace, Immutable and GameStop will launch a $100M dedicated to providing grants to game developers and studios to build on Immutable X and the NFT marketplace.
