GameStop’s new NFT Marketplace was in the headlines over the weekend, but it wasn't anything positive. The company was under fire for selling an NFT that depicted a famous image of a man falling from the Twin Towers during the 9/11 terrorist attack. In the NFT in question, the man has been replaced by an astronaut, although the similarities between the two images are impossible to ignore. GameStop has since taken the NFT off the site, despite allegedly being minted 25 times already and selling for a price of 0.65 ETH.

It’s not all bad news for GameStop’s newest site though. Despite having a fairly limited supply of initial NFTs, GameStop has already recorded $7.5 million in transactions during its first week of operations. This means that GameStop only made about $169,000 in fees for those transactions. While it isn’t much, investors are optimistic that once the NFT market emerges on the other side of this crypto winter, that this revenue will be much higher than it is today.
