Last month we reported that GameStop were planning on getting into the NFT and cryptocurrency market and the earlier today the company finally announced they have partnered with an Australian crypto firm called Immutable. This will see both companies raising $100 million in funding for Immutable X’s IMX tokens.
To absolutely nobody’s surprise GameStop employees have taken to the official GameStop subreddit to voice their frustration with the decision. While some believe this is just GameStop trying to get into a market they know absolutely nothing about (or even care), many have mostly expressed how the company will not give raises to anyone at the store level for several years, but will invest this amount into this.
While many video game companies have backtracked on NFTs after overwhelmingly negative feedback, this is one that people believe will truly be ignored.
