The company's page includes the Ethereum logo as well as a link to a smart contract featuring the Game On Anon text on its source code. Notably, the contract code makes mention to the issuance of a dedicated GME token - GameStop shares trade under the same ticker on the stock market.
GameStop shares started a rally in February when several large hedge funds suffered heavy losses as they liquidated their short positions following coordinated buying by investors on social media.
