In a year that started with memes that drove GameStop’s junk stock price high into the stratosphere, it is only fitting that the shrinking video game dealer is covering the frivolities by getting used to cryptocurrencies. GameStop last week apparently at Flexa, a payment network that lets you pay for real things using blockchain assets, including the dogecoin meme currency.
“Enter the metaverse,” wrote Flexa on December 16 in an announcement
Flexa is an app that connects shops and restaurants with crypto enthusiasts so they can spend their bitcoins and other environmentally damaging currencies on goods and services in the real world. One of those stores now seems to be GameStop, which apparently lets you pre-order games like Pokémon Legends: Arceus with Smooth Love Potions currently worth $ 0.03071 each.
GameStop did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Cryptocurrencies have bred like rabbits this year, but few have become as popular or display the absurdity of the entire business as well as Dogecoin. A joke inspired by the decade-old doge meme
Unlike Dogecoin, GameStop’s stock has continued to drop to a once-unthinkable $ 150 per share despite some recent shocks. Of course, this has not led to better working conditions in the company where the employees are on the border thanks in part to understaffing and terrible pay. It’s unclear how the new crypto collaboration will help them, but at least GameStop customers can now rest easy knowing that it is easier than ever to liquidate their Dogecoin holdings by putting everything in Funko Pops .
