Amazon To Sell Bitcoin? Users Are Willing To Buy BTC And Medical Marijuana Using The Platform
Digital assets have been growing in popularity these days, and despite the bearish market that worried some investors last year, people seem to continue being interested in virtual currencies.
These days, you can go to a Bitcoin ATM to get crypto or simply use an exchange platform.
About 13% of Amazon’s user would buy BTC on the platform
Investing.com conducted a survey which revealed some pretty interesting facts.
It looks like 13% of Amazon’s users would feel really comfortable and safe purchasing Bitcoin (BTC) via Amazon.
The very same percentage of users said that they would also like to purchase medical marijuana and drugs using the e-commerce platform.
This new survey shows that precisely 12.7% of Amazon’s users would like to buy BTC using the platform.
Here’s the original question in the survey: “Which of the following product and service offerings would you feel comfortable purchasing under the Amazon brand?”
Statistics after the survey
72.9% of the respondents said that they would feel safe to buy Amazon-branded computers.
51.7% said that they would purchase local deals and coupons and 36.7% would definitely buy prescriptions drugs.
Usethebitcoin.com writes that “Other possible answers were Medical marijuana (29.5%), Pet care services (22.9%), News (21.2%), Ride-sharing services (17.7%), Cybersecurity (16.4%), Virtual doctor visits (16%), Health care coverage (15.3%), Hospitality services (13.1%) and Public transportation (12.8%).”
Bitcoin adoption, on the rise
The truth is that Bitcoin adoption is on the rise these days and all developments and achievements that are taking place in the crypto sphere are leading to this goal.
Recently Binance CEO Chagnpeng Zhao said that he just doesn’t get it how come that not all businesses work with crypto by now:
“For any internet (non-physical) based business, I don’t understand why anyone would not accept crypto payments. It is easier, faster and cheaper to integration than traditional payment gateways. Less paperwork. And reaches more diverse demographics and geography,” were his exact words.
