Tesla’s entry into Bitcoin made waves. For many, it is only a matter of time before other large US corporations follow suit. Is Amazon Coming Next?
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has many losers. One of the winners, however, is definitely online retail, especially the big top dog Amazon. Most recently, the news that founder Jeff Bezos is vacating the executive chair caused a stir. Now came another hammer that is fueling speculation. Amazon recently published a job advertisement seeking a software development manager for “Digital and Emerging Payments”.
The ad specifies that it is about the task of developing a new product in the field of payments on behalf of Amazon customers in emerging countries and for digital companies worldwide. According to the tender, the project is to be launched first in Mexico.
“This product will enable customers to convert their cash into digital currency that they can use to use online services, including shopping for goods and / or services such as Prime Video
so the description of the project. Apparently the group is trying to make the lucrative prime offer even more attractive for its clientele. The job posting comes at a time when several analysts assume that Tesla will not remain the only large US corporation investing in Bitcoin on a large scale. In addition to Amazon, Google and even Apple have long been under discussion.
