New Fortnite cryptocurrency scam discovered

Fortnite

TL;DR Breakdown

• The supposed Fortnite token promised to exchange V-Bucks for dollars.
• Epic Games may analyze its V-Bucks buying and selling policies.

Fortnite fans have discovered a new cryptocurrency scam. The supposed Fortnite’s native token, which was intended to work great on the interface, has turned out to be a scam.

The cryptocurrency was made to be integrated with the game and Epic Games, the game developer company, but has now been proven to be a vile hoax. The new currency called Fortnite Coin appeared on various social media platforms.

Fortnite coin: a cryptocurrency that turned out to be fraudulent

Fortnite

Fortnite has been one of the most famous free battle video games for a long time. This game available for mobile phones seems to have been updated to use cryptocurrencies, considering that the virtual market is booming. However, the website that powered this game token was a scam and did not have Epic Games support.

Fornite Coin promised to exchange V-Bucks so users could send them to their crypto wallets. One in-game currency equaled two tokens which was a great offer for fans to take the game as a source of work and thus earn money from home.

But unfortunately, this attractive offer was not real because V-Bucks cannot be purchased or withdrawn from other providers, only from the website. This small detail triggered many doubts among users, revealing that this coin is nothing other than a scam.

Video game community outraged at possible scam

Although the video game developers had nothing to do with the Fortnite coin scam, they may feel guilty. The manager has done nothing to improve how players can acquire V-Bucks, which could have caused these problems.

The hackers who created Fortnite coin had a good foundation by taking over the crypto market known worldwide. Perhaps with this revelation, other similar scams will be born where the game users are affected.

The Fortnite developers have not spoken to take legal action or update their way of acquiring V-Bucks. This small problem may be enough for Epic Games to understand that their video game is being left out in online purchases.

This V-Bucks bond with cryptocurrencies can be a great option and will have a good receptivity among users. There are no figures on how many Fortnite players were scammed with the token, but it is believed to be very large. Epic Games cannot reward these users because they use the V-Bucks outside their limits.

Many similar websites promise to exchange V-Bucks for local currencies or vice versa, but they are often a scam. Users will only carry out these operations within Epic Games under their exchange policies.
