GameStop is the world’s biggest video game retailer with over 4,000 stores in the United States, Canada, Australia, and Europe. The store is also known for selling consumer electronics and other gaming merchandise.
GameStop experienced a decline in performance in the last decade due to the market’s shift to online shopping. However, the brand gained resurgence in 2021 when the company’s stock price skyrocketed. This surge was due to a “short squeeze” that gave rise to what crypto traders call “meme stocks.”
On July 11, 2022, GameStop launched their NFT platform’s Beta, which the company had been teasing since mid-2021.
