More V-Bucks at a Lesser Cost because of Forex rates?

V-Bucks are Fortnite’s virtual currency. According to the epic games V-Bucks enables players to purchase items such as Outfits, Pickaxes, wraps, emotes (dances and taunts) and battle passes.

V-Bucks can be obtained from daily rewards such as logins also from the battle pass in Battle Royale.

V-Bucks cards can also be purchased from retail stores and redeemed for actual v-bucks.

Forex is a global market that facilitates the exchange of currencies. It is based on the change in valuation of a currency. For example the worth of the dollar is not always the same today it could be exchanged at a higher or lower rate for another currency, depending on factors such as politics that affect the money markets. You may ask where does V-Bucks come into play? Well let’s analyze two facts

  1. V-Bucks have a relatively constant value currently 1,000 V-Bucks at $9.99.
  2. The dollar does not.

This fact is especially advantageous to those living outside the US. If the value of the dollar drops in relation to a particular currency, then purchasing a V-Bucks after currency conversion is like receiving an automatic discount. Unfortunately currencies rarely drop significantly and gains would only be made if a significant amount of v-bucks was purchased which is highly unlikely.
