Epic Games boss Tim Sweeney has spoken out about a fake Fortnite cryptocurrency account known as Fortnite Token, calling it a scam and nothing to do with Epic’s battle royale and its trademarks. In fact, Epic is calling in its lawyers to shut the whole thing down
A series of tweets between the CEO and the Fortnite Token account reveal the full extent of Sweeny’s disdain for the cryptocurrency market (at least when it comes to Fortnite).
“There isn’t a Fortnite cryptocurrency,” he stated “The Twitter accounts promoting such a thing are a scam. Epic’s lawyers are on it.”
