Blockchain explorer Etherscan revealed that GameStop had sold close to 15 million IMX tokens over the week in a series of three transactions. The company has cashed out $47 million worth of IMX tokens so far.

The price of IMX is now down by 30% since GameStop’s partnership announcement. At press time, IMX was trading at $2.83.

An SEC filing last Thursday revealed the terms of the grant, which detailed how GameStop is scheduled to receive $150 million worth of IMX tokens from Immutable X “upon the achievement of certain milestones.”
