Fortnite Store Now Accepts Monero Crypto
Fortnite fans are now able to buy merchandise for the online video game using the cryptocurrency Monero (XMR). Due to privacy concerns Bitcoin payments are not yet accepted.
While Fortnite did not make an official announcement, fans shared the news on Reddit on January 1, where it received a very positive reception.
Crypto enthusiasts said the move signals that crypto adoption is expanding, since Fortnite is the most popular video game in the world, with more than 200 million registered users.
The crypto adoption is slowing taking the order of the day and more digital assets are expected to emerge.
Monero developer Riccardo Spagni shared the news on Twitter thus:
“Too cool: The Fortnite merch store lets you pay in Monero, so now you can purchase that sweet Durrr Burger onesie without friends/family/coworkers judging you,”
