GameStop is looking to build an Ethereum-based Web3 arm, according to a job listing posted by the company nine hours ago.
The retailer said it’s looking for someone with “experience with Ethereum, NFTs [non-fungible tokens], and blockchain based gaming platforms” for its “Head of Web3 Gaming” role.
The job post outlines a metaverse-esque future for the gaming industry, where “games are places you’ll go” and “blockchains will power the commerce beneath.”
“Integrations with different blockchains and Ethereum Layer 2 environments” was listed as one of the role’s responsibilities.
In May, the company created a page teasing an in-house NFT marketplace, which the firm still appears to be hiring for.
An address on the site showed that GameStop had already created an Ethereum-based ERC-721 token, the standard widely used to create NFTs.
