Rumors and Speculations about Amazon

The confusing thing to be noted is that in July of last year, Amazon did post a job offering, titled as, “Digital Currency and Blockchain Product Lead”, leading to many speculations regarding the massive platform integrating cryptocurrency payments onto its systems.

Referring to an unnamed source, the City A.M. Newspaper published in London mentioned that Amazon will soon start to accept Bitcoin and is also planning to release it very own unique token into the public this year, which lead to a minor price boost in the cryptocurrency market. But nevertheless, Amazon rejected such claims, shattering many hopes and dreams.

Massive Companies Moving towards Crypto

Amazon, a behemoth of a company which has a current valuation of about $1.6Trillion, which is almost as big as the complete cryptocurrency market that is valued at $1.97Trillion, is part of a few remaining firms that have not yet made any potential move towards the cryptocurrency market.

Another example highlights the development made by META, which is the parent company of hugely popular services such as Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, that has completely changed its direction towards building a virtual world known as the “Metaverse”, in order to promote more digital interactions, while also providing other companies the opportunity to shine in it.
