GameStop’s NFT Marketplace is about to launch, and the company is calling on all creators to apply soon.
GameStop’s NFT Marketplace is launching soon according to the company, and the video game retailer put out a call to action today for aspiring creators.
Calling our community, and creators of all sorts 📢
The GameStop NFT Marketplace is almost here, and we are onboarding creators.
Whether you’re an artist, game dev, or meme lord – if you’ve got the goods, we want to see! Please apply here:https://t.co/7iwW4urN2y
GameStop’s NFT Twitter account also let a user know that “we’re getting lots of applications. Our team is getting to them as quickly as possible!” The Creator sign-up form asks people to describe themselves as either an independent artist, game dev, meme lord, or other creator. The application also requests that users submit an example of a past NFT project they have worked on.
There’s been a lot of GameStop news in the past week, with shareholders approving the upcoming stock split and the company reporting a Q1 2022 revenue beat. The company even began sending corporate employees to work in retail stores to experience what their retail workers go through on any given day. It’s not all sunshine and kitten farts at GameStop, as employees at a Nebraska store recently walked out citing unreasonable management expectations.
GameStop shares are no longer hard-to-borrow @etrade. They are impossible to borrow. #GMESQUEEZE #GME #PowerToThePlayers $GME 🚀🌕🏴☠️💎🙌 pic.twitter.com/z9PTc75O51
Some other interesting bits of information regarding the company’s stock are widespread reports of borrowing interest rates on GME short positions skyrocketing. My own broker, Etrade, has not had any shares available to borrow for the past few days. Many shareholders believe that another bout of extreme volatility is heading to GameStop’s stock in the coming weeks. With over 56 million shares voting in last week’s annual meeting, it seems abundantly clear that the individual retail investor movement that began on r/WallStreetBets and has continued across the Internet has actually taken over GameStop’s float. Power to the players, indeed.
For now, many aspiring NFT creators are lining up to join the latest marketplace to enter the arena. Only time will tell just how much power will go to the creators or if this whole GameStop NFT marketplace will be dead on arrival as the cryptocurrencies struggle to find any footing in the ongoing bear market.

Asif Khan posted a new article, GameStop (GME) posts NFT Marketplace Creator application form
The discussion on Elon and ntf’s on chatty is directly opposite to the comments on these posts on fb. Woah.
Yeah. Some FB threads end up with more comments than the entirety of Chatty comments in a day. Really interesting stuff.
And super pro Elon and ‘fuck the establishment’ attitude which is pretty opposite of chatty.
Indeed. A lot of right wing people commenting on Shacknews articles.
Which is kinda nice I guess, since most of our article threads here see next to zero engagement most days.
At least they’re getting news from a place that isn’t Fox News, NewsMax, InfoWars, Breitbart, or The Daily Caller?
If only most of them actually clicked the link instead of reacting to the headlines…
I think this is just evidence that Facebook algorithms just work! The next step for Shacknews would be to post outrage content and just watch the engagement soar!
It’s interesting too that at a glance your tech articles are generating more interest than gaming on Facebook. Do you get money for Facebook engagement?
No, we don’t generate money from FB engagement. It does become another metric we can use when pitching game companies on working with us on content, but we do not really see any direct monetary benefit from this new level of Facebook engagement.
asif have you gone /r/superstonk on us??
I have posted there twice.
I’m kind of new to NFTs, what’s the easiest way to convert my life savings into crypto so that I can become rich?
Just send it to me. I’ll do all the work for you and send you the account information.
Do I need to create a crypto wallet thing or can I just use PayPal?
Also how do I mint an nft from a picture so that I can sell it for a lot of money?
Also, what’s a shitcoin and how do I avoid investing in them?
Or should I invest in a shitcoin?
