Is Amazon Positioning Itself for Further Mainstream Crypto & Blockchain Adoption?
The crypto publication Decrypt has exposed that Amazon is posting some very interesting job listings lately…
I’ll save you some time… the listings are :
Head of Product (with DeFi experience) for Amazon Managed Blockchain
Senior Software Engineer for work on “financial ledger” and “data transparency” for Amazon Ad Fintech
Digital Currency and Blockchain Product Lead
A statement Amazon shared with Decrypt:
"We’re inspired by the innovation happening in the cryptocurrency space and are exploring what this could look like on Amazon," the statement reads. "We believe the future will be built on new technologies that enable modern, fast, and inexpensive payments, and hope to bring that future to Amazon customers as soon as possible." - Amazon Spokesperson to Decrypt
Yes, some big boys and girls are positioning themselves to participate in Decentralized Finance.
I’m hesitant to believe they’ll go the public chain route, but they may be forced to at least maintain a bridge between public chains and their walled gardens as we are seeing more adoption of public chain protocols in DeFi and beyond.
