There isn't a Fortnite cryptocurrency. The Twitter accounts promoting such a thing are a scam. Epic's lawyers are on it. Also, shame on the cryptocurrency marketplaces that enable this kind of thing.— Tim Sweeney (@TimSweeneyEpic) June 6, 2022
In October 2021, Tim tweeted that ‘the Epic’s store would allow blockchains on the platform, as long as they were obedient with the law. It proves that he’s not against this technology by itself, but rather the degree to of its community is loaded with chiselers.
Epic’s producer and CEO “Tim Sweeney” announced that “Epic Games Store will welcome games that make use of blockchain tech provided they follow the appropriate laws, reveal their terms, and are age-rated by a relevant group.”
Earlier this week, ‘EpicGames collaborated with blockchain Platform GALA. Gala is scheduled to take Web3 to the extent by releasing its games on Epic’s stores which will accommodate more than 194 million users.
If you don’t know about Web3, Web3 is a concept for a new repetition of the World Wide Web based on blockchain technology, which integrates concepts like decentralization and token-based economics.
It has become a broad term for the illusion of a new, better internet. At its core, web3 uses NFTs, blockchains, and cryptocurrencies to give power back to the users in the form of ownership.
NFTs are basically “Non-fungible tokens”. It’s a financial assurance consisting of digital data reserved in a blockchain, a kind of allotted ledger. The ownership of NFT is listed in the blockchain and can be transferred by the holder, enabling NFTs to be vended and traded.
