Forget stonks, GameStop’s all about those NFTs now

Stonks are so 2021—GameStop is now the latest big gaming brand to wander heedlessly into the grift-cum-minefield of NFTs. Today the bricks-and-mortar retailer announced an NFT marketplace to launch later this year. “Building on the Immutable X protocol will enable faster, more affordable, carbon-neutral and nearly limitless transactions on GameStop’s NFT marketplace, which is being built for launching gaming developer-focused NFT projects,” says the press release.

Interesting how all the announcements now bend over backwards to try and make these things seem green, when anything that’s a part of this ecosystem is as environmentally unfriendly as it comes.
