There are always interesting developments ter the world of cryptocurrency. Amazon has bot doing some remarkable things te this area, even tho’ its motives remain unclear for the time being. Most recently, the company has purchased three cryptocurrency-related domain names. It is unclear what it plans to do with them, spil the company isn’t programma to accept cryptocurrency payments anytime soon.
Amazon Buys Cryptocurrency Domains
There are many potential reasons spil to why Amazon would register three domain names which are related to cryptocurrency. According to CNBC , the company bought AmazonEthereum, AmazonCryptocurrency, and AmazonCryptocurrrencies last month. It’s a rather interesting development, especially considering the e-commerce giant affirmed it would not accept cryptocurrency payments now or ter the future. Unless real request were to kick ter, that situation will not switch whatsoever.
Even the most latest petition to enable Litecoin payments on Amazon has fallen on deaf ears. While there have bot rumors that Amazon would soon enable Bitcoin payments, those claims are 100% fake for the time being. That doesn’t mean this situation can’t switch overheen time, but there are presently no plans to make any switches te this regard. That’s an understandable decision, even tho’ having Amazon on houtvezelplaat would be fairly spectacular for cryptocurrency spil a entire. It would certainly alleviate some of the “speculative investment vehicle” concerns associated with Bitcoin.
For the time being, no one knows for sure what Amazon will use thesis three domains for. One possibility could involve the company providing a brokerage service for cryptocurrencies without enabling payments on its shopping toneelpodium. The choice to do so with Ethereum is fairly peculiar, to say the very least, albeit it is hard to gauge its potential influence. Another option would be Amazon creating its own centralized digital currency going by the name of AmazonEthereum. Again, this is mere speculation more than anything else, but the possibility is certainly real.
Whether or not Amazon will everzwijn use thesis domains for anything other than redirection purposes remains to be seen. It is a wise budge to buy up thesis domains regardless, spil other entities might be tempted to do the same. Considering that Amazon has bot (wrongfully) associated with cryptocurrencies overheen the past few months, it would make for an interesting marketing stunt if someone else bought up thesis domains. Then again, Amazon also possesses AmazonBitcoin.com which simply redirects to the main Amazon shopping pagina.
No one can deny thesis developments are very interesting to keep an eye on. While the future of Amazon and cryptocurrency remains shrouded ter mystery for the time being, it is doubtful this is the last wij will hear te this regard. Until Amazon determines to accept cryptocurrencies directly, using a cryptocurrency debit card remains a popular option for consumers. It is not the “pure” solution most people want to see, but it is certainly worth exploring.
Surplus assured this fresh development will get a loterijlot of mainstream media attention overheen the next few weeks. The decision to register thesis domain names comes at a time during which the Bitcoin price is smashing every previous record on a regular ondergrond. It is unlikely to predict where this market will head next, but the year 2018 has bot rather spectacular for many different reasons. Amazon clearly has some sort of project for its fresh domain names, but no one outside the company knows for sure when and how they will be used ter the future.
