This partnership with GameStop allows for access to millions of low-cost and carbon-neutral in-game assets that can easily be bought and sold.
Immutable X’s mission is to bring true digital ownership to all users, and this new partnership with GameStop is a step towards that goal.
What Web3 games are available via the new GameStop marketplace?
GameStop’s new marketplace is offering a variety of exciting games for players to choose from. The collectable card game Gods Unchained, for example, allows players to have complete ownership of in-game items in the form of non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
Immortal Game adds a new layer of strategy to the classic game of chess, while Guild of Guardians offers a player-driven universe in its mobile RPG game.
Another popular game featured on the marketplace is Ember Sword. The trailer for the Web3 game can be viewed below.
In Ember Sword, players can explore and battle their way through a player-driven sandbox MMORPG. Bitverse draws inspiration from 8-bit heroes and monsters, and Hro offers DC trading cards for collectors to trade and play with.
Whether you’re looking for strategy or adventure, there’s something for everyone on GameStop’s new marketplace which features incredible Immutable X titles.
All games have NFT collections that can be purchased via the new GameStop NFT marketplace. Nearly 7,000 Gods Unchained NFTs are currently featured via the new marketplace, for example.
What’s the GameStop NFT and Immutable X Grant Program?
The launch of the new GameStop NFT marketplace came with a new grant program in collaboration between Immutable and GameStop. The grant is designed for builders or creators who want to help the two companies power the future of web3 gaming and their new NFT marketplace.
This program aims to empower various players in the industry, including studios, developers, publishers, and content creators.
Those eligible for grants include game developers with launched games and major traction, AAA studios looking to introduce NFTs with their IP, leading brands exploring the NFT market, and even influencers and celebrities seeking to become ambassadors for Immutable X’s platform.
The program also welcomes new technologies that may benefit the platform or ecosystem. As GameStop continues to make headlines with its stock surge and push towards NFTs, it’s clear that the gaming world is quickly adapting to incorporate blockchain technology.
And Immutable X’s grant program is just one more step towards mainstream adoption in this space. Interested parties can apply by submitting a clear and concise application outlining their project and how it aligns with Immutable X’s mission.
It’s recommended that applications are explicit about how the offering of the applicant will benefit the GameStop and Immutable X NFT marketplace and community. The application form can be found here.
It’s exciting to see what new developments this grant program will bring about in the world of gaming and NFTs.
What’s the background around the GameStop and Immutable X partnership?
GameStop announced a partnership with Immutable X, addressing the growing trend of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) back in February of this year. Immutable X will serve as the platform for GameStop’s planned NFT marketplace which has now launched.
The partnership also includes a $100 million fund in Immutable X’s IMX tokens, to be used as grants for NFT creators. As part of the agreement, Immutable X could provide up to $150 million in IMX tokens to GameStop upon meeting certain milestones.
Creators from industries including gaming and web 3.0 can apply for grants through Immutable X. This move highlights GameStop’s efforts to stay relevant in the rapidly changing digital market.
Equally, it’s a great way for Immutable X to deliver on its mission around digital rights and ownership of digital assets. The partnership could see more and more mainstream gamers get involved with Web3 games and NFTs.
Overall, the new NFT marketplace is an exciting move in the right direction for the world of Web3.
