Crypto collective Monero has announced that gamers are now able to buy Fortnite merchandise using monero (XMR). Monero made an exclusivity deal with merchandise store Retail Row, which uses GloBee for its payments. Even though XMR is the only accepted crypto coin, traditional payment methods like credit cards and Paypal are also an option.
GloBee itself can also be used to accept payments in bitcoin, litecoin and XRP, but for now Retail Row is only accepting monero. Even though this store is not directly tied into the video games, this will add a lot of potential customers.
Fortnite is by far the most popular game of 2018. There are 125 million players worldwide on a variety of platforms, ranging from mobile phones to high-end PCs and gaming consoles. Between July 2017 and May 2018 the game made 1.2 billion dollars in revenue.
