All you need to know to get started with the GameStop NFT Marketplace
The GameStop NFT Marketplace enables gamers, creators, and passionate NFT collectors to buy, sell, and trade digital collectibles. Community members can trade NFTs with a slick user interface that ensures the best user experience. But how does it really work? Let´s dive into it.
We recently announced the integration of the GameStop NFT Marketplace to DappRadar. This quick guide will walk you through the GameStop platform and show you how to use it.
What is the GameStop NFT Marketplace?
The GameStop NFT Marketplace is a non-custodial Ethereum layer 2-based marketplace where users can truly own their digital assets.
The marketplace launched on July 11 this year tapping into the NFT frenzy for growth and is competing with more established marketplaces such as OpenSea.
The platform offers lower gas fees than its counterpart, OpenSea and an easier conversion funnel for users to set up a wallet powered by Loopring´s technology.
Loopring is a zkRollup Layer 2 solution which dramatically reduces gas consumption while offering high levels of security in a decentralized format.
How can you use the NFT Marketplace?
If you are looking to buy cool art on the GameStop NFT Marketplace, you can simply contact the seller and buy their artwork. But before doing this there are some basic steps you need to follow.
- Create a Wallet
Here you can either choose the GameStop Wallet, browser wallets like MetaMask, or any other wallet through the universal WalletConnect technology.
In the case of using the GameStop Wallet, you must also add it to Chrome as an installed extension.
You can also connect your existing wallet to DappRadar and access the GameStop Marketplace through its single dapp page.
- Fund the wallet using Ethereum
Here you can follow two paths. The first one is to buy ETH straight into your linked wallet from any of the approved payment providers. This way, ETH will be deposited into your wallet on Layer 2, allowing you to buy NFTs. Yes, it´s that easy!
Another path you can follow is to transfer funds from an existing wallet on Ethereum Layer 1 to the Layer 2 account that was connected on GameStop NFT Marketpkace. This way, the ETH that was despotied to Layer 2 wil be available in the balance as you purchase NFTs on the platform.
