Bullish double-digit movements are returning to the cryptocurrency market. The bitcoin soars up to 12% and it tempts the resistance of the $ 40,000 in high prices of the last six weeks. The Amazon’s first approach towards the sector is behind this energetic rebound.
At the moment, Amazon is only looking add a blockchain expert to your team, the technology on which the development of bitcoin is based, but also of many other technological tools. This is how it appears on the corporate website of the global e-commerce giant.
The job offer specifies that the position is to “innovate on behalf of clients in payments and financial systems of one of the largest e-commerce companies in the world“Among the tasks associated with this job is responsibility for” the vision and Amazon’s Digital Currency strategy and blockchain as well as its product roadmap “in this area.
It’s not the first time
Although this bet is very far from the acceptance of bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies as a payment method on its global platform, the first step towards this universe has unleashed the euphoria of many. Something to which the British financial daily City AM has contributed, which in its edition this Monday has published that it is would be studying the incorporation of digital currency to their systems, according to internal company sources referred to by the newspaper.
