Fortnite Users Can Now Pay For Branded Merchandise Using Monero

Fortnite customers will be able to purchase branded merchandise from the Fortnite merch store using the popular privacy coin Monero (XMR). Fortnite is one of the most popular video-games all over the world. The information was released by Monero’s founder Riccardo Spagni on Twitter on January 1st.

The payments made using Monero will be processed using Globee, a crypto payment processor that accepts different virtual currencies such as Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC) or Ethereum (ETH), among others.

This will allow users from many different countries to pay using one of the most popular virtual currencies in the market. There are some users that do not play the game but are very excited about the fact that they decided to adopt Monero as a means of payment.

On Twitter, several individuals have been asking about the possibility to add other virtual currencies. Matt Odell, for example, asked globee why they did not promote Bitcoin support as well. According to Spagni, the company is also very interested in the Lightning Network (LN).

Samantha Chang, a crypto journalist at CCN asked why they are not accepting Bitcoin. Spagni answered that they are concerned about privacy and Bitcoin lacks privacy features. He went on explaining that the reason why they are interested in the Lightning Network is the fact that it is possible to restore ‘some’ privacy to Bitcoin.

The Lightning Network is a scaling solution for Bitcoin that allows the popular virtual currency to process millions of transactions using a second layer solution. That means that payments can be processed off-chain and later broadcasted to the network.

There are several projects that are working with the gaming industry in order to increase blockchain and crypto adoption. For example, the Tron Foundation unveiled the TRON Arcade, a $100 million game fund that aims to help the blockchain industry grow side by side with the gaming industry.

Litecoin and TRON are also planning to integrate privacy features. This could play allow these assets to be accepted by Fortnite’s merch store in the future. Nevertheless, Tron is closer to implement these features than Litecoin.
