Voting machine maker vows to step up security, Fortnite bribes players to do 2FA – and more

I tried the Fortnite free game to see what all the fuss what about, bizarrely within the first two weeks people had tried to log in as me on multiple occasion triggering multiple emails from Epic asking me to set up 2FA. What exactly were these "hackers" going to do? Play the game as me? I highly doubt it, there was nothing of value to getting logged in as me. Now we see Epic bribing people to get 2FA by offering a dance move. So the big question is why? What do Epic get out of knowing who I am? (Phone number link, they already have an email) Is there a market for Email/IP/Phone information on people? If anyone knows I'd be curious to know.
