GameStop has seen its share prices surge drastically multiple times, as seen in 2021 when Reddit pushed the asset more than 800%.

The marketplace will focus on virtual video game goods such as character outfits and weapons, with more than two dozen blockchain and crypto team members already. 

Is this the step forward that GameStop needs to take to set themselves up for further success or will this be the final nail in their already failing coffin?
