Epic Games CEO Bashes Crypto Exchanges Over Fake Fortnite Token
Epic Games CEO and Co-Founder Tim Sweeney called out “cryptocurrency marketplaces” today for allegedly “enabling” unofficial and unauthorized cryptocurrencies bearing the “Fortnite” name. Fortnite is Epic’s massively popular Battle Royale shooter game. First released in 2023, it now has more than 350 million registered users worldwide.
“There isn’t a Fortnite cryptocurrency,” Sweeney wrote. “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.”. A quick search for the alleged scam token on those exchanges does not currently return any results, though these decentralized exchanges enable their users to trade virtually any token so long as those users manually input the token’s contract address.
