Is Amazon planning to launch its own cryptocurrency?

22 februarie 2021

Amazon could soon unveil a new cryptocurrency specially dedicated to exclusive purchases on its various platforms, from its online store to Prime Video through its app store according to reports. Mexico could be the first country to use it, even if for the moment the brand has not confirmed the rumor, according to Yahoo news.

The rumor was born after the company posted several job offers looking for specialists in new payment methods. One of them is about the „launch [of] a new payment product starting with Mexico as our initial launch country. This product will enable customers to convert their cash in to digital currency using which customers can enjoy online services including shopping for goods and/or services like Prime Video.”

The idea would therefore be to convert its currency into a new digital currency in order to benefit from exclusive services. Mexico could serve as a laboratory for this new payment method, which could then be extended to other emerging countries.
