The new Amazon CEO is excited about the future of cryptocurrencies, but plans to allow them as a means of payment are on the back burner.
Since last year, Andy Jassy has been CEO of Amazon; in an interview with the American business channel CNBC, he talks about cryptocurrencies and NFTs, even if it is with some caution.
We are not even close to adding cryptocurrencies as a means of payment in our retail business. However, he does add that he expects cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin to become much larger, even though he does not own bitcoin himself.
Later in the conversation, Jassy does not rule out that Amazon will also sell NFTs, digital works linked to a blockchain. ‘That is a possibility in the long term for our platform’, it sounds.
