GameStop Hiring Accountant For NFTs
The video game retailer GameStop is looking to hire an accountant who will work on non-fungible tokens (NFTs), cryptocurrencies and other applications that adopt blockchain technologies.
The job posting made by the firm stated that the individuals applying for this role needed to have experience in offering accounting services for firms that deal in electronic commerce and blockchain gaming.
GameStop stated that the individual who will get accepted into this position will work together with the technology and business development teams offering their services.
The individual will undertake the responsibility of overseeing the operational accounting processes of its NFT platform. The individual also needed to have a high “level of control and integrity.”
This is not the first time that the video game retailer has been looking into the NFT sector. In May, the firm launched a website dubbed GameStop NFT.
At the time, the retailer stated that it wanted to put together a team to create a platform that would support digital asset products. However, the company did not go into any extra details regarding the NFT platform.
This most recent job posting is not a first for GameStop. In April, the firm also created a job posting stating that it was looking for a blockchain analyst with experience in the crypto sector and last month, GameStop also posted several job offers to target the crypto sector.
Following these postings, the retailer has attracted much attention from the Reddit community, with some users stating that this new initiative will allow the company to use cutting-edge technology and bring it into mainstream business.
GameStop Looking Into Web3 Gaming
The other area that GameStop is also targeting is Web3 gaming. The company stated that this new initiative would offer immense benefits to the firm and the users of the platform.
Some of the objectives that this initiative will bring include paving the way for a better future for the gaming and commerce sector. The firm further noted that gaming had an immense role to play in the future. It further stated that playing games played a role in bringing the virtual and the real world together.
“In this future, games are the places to go, and play is driven by the things you bring. Future creators won’t just build games but also the components, characters, and equipment. Blockchains will power the commerce underneath. An ideal candidate will have experience across several domains in gaming, content creation, partnerships, game design/development/mechanics, and a general understanding and experience with Ethereum, NFTs, and blockchain-based gaming platforms.”
Web3 is a concept that has gained much attention from not only the crypto space but beyond. Andreesen Horowitz, one of the leading venture capital firms, has applauded Web3 for its growth and potential. The firm stated that Web3 was the next generation for the internet.
Web3 is a composition of all the internet’s major innovations, including blockchain, cryptographic protocols, digital assets, decentralized finance and social media platforms.
