    Amazon registered 3 Crypto-related domain names to pave their way into Crypto Industry.

    The registration of following domain names show eagerness and interest of world's largest e-retailer in the cryptocurrency. Interesting to note here is that Amazon already owns AmazonBitcoin.com domain name. The three names registered are:
    • AmazonEthereum.com
    • AmazonCryptocurrency.com
    • AmazonCryptocurrencies.com
    Update: These domain names weren't new, and were probably first registered in the year 2017.


    Thank you for the update @equity78

    I didnt, and thanks for pointing that out.

    They'd (Amazon) probably had them way before and the news just started doing rounds on Crypto Forums.

    I will make necessary updates to the article right away.

    I think they would like to be more like Square rather than creating a new crypto currency like Libra, since they already own Amazon pay.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Agreed, but we will have to wait and watch for their long term vision or goal ;)

    Don't think he'd settle with a payment portal like Square. He wants his coin! (if possible, he'd give it his name) Amazon is very ambitious!!!

    Amazon can sustain their own currency at this point, it’s just a matter of when they choose to roll it out.

    They do register names in a defensive fashion, and some of those look to be such.

    With bitcoin so volatile, it’s hard for them to accept it, per say the next day it could drop by $2k, they need a more standard function currency.

    Facebook is the world's largest bank with its own currency

    Few if any will ever be able to compete with it

    you could be right with that, but we can only speculate or assume what Amazon will end up doing with it. As of now, future looks strong for blockchain tech!

    you are quite on point about them rolling out their own crypto-currency tomorrow if they’d want to, but there’s something that’s stopping them as of now, or they’re simply waiting and watching the game a bit. No?

    I’m not sure if I’d want to agree with this statement because I barely see their currency taking off, just as yet. In future? You never know, but for now they are going nowhere bud!
