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.
Layer 2 is a companion system designed to help a cryptocurrency system handle a larger volume of data, typically with the goal of processing more payments, faster.
In May, the company created a page teasing an in-house NFT marketplace, which the company 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.
