Tim Sweeney, the Founder of Epic Games, has revealed in a tweet that the Monero payment gateway previously reported to have been set up on a Fortnite merchandise store, was “accidental”.

This came two days after it was reported that Retail Row, an official Fortnite merchandise store, had implemented a payment option for the anonymous cryptocurrency Monero. The would-be moment of mainstream adoption for the crypto, it turns out, was actually a bit of a blunder.

Too early

Without dismissing the technology entirely, Sweeney commented further in his Tweets, describing many of the companies staff as “big fans” of the decentralized technology that underpins cryptocurrencies. However, he adds: “A lot more work is needed on volatility and fraud-proofing before bringing it to such a broad audience that includes younger gamers.”

Additionally, he goes on to dispel and rumors by saying that Epic Games has no partnerships or future partnerships in place with cryptocurrency firms, adding: “We do read lots of papers and talk to smart people to learn more in anticipation of an eventual intercept.”
